The PL-Series compressor has been designed to operate in extreme duty applications. Because the PL-Series can operate up to 250 psi, and run in off-level operations, it is a true industrial use compressor. The PL-Series features domed pistons, integral cylinder head, disc valves, and an oil pump that provides lubricant to all crucial parts of the compressor. From its extra heavy duty design to its ease of maintenance, the Champion PL-Series exemplifies reliability, durability, and quality.
