Answer: Generally have two types of compressors. They are the piston and the scroll. The piston type uses piston attached to a motor driven crankshaft to draw in and compress the refrigerant. On the other hand, the scroll compressors use an orbiting scroll on an eccentric motor-driven crankshaft to suck in the vaporized refrigerant and push it into a stationery scroll whose volume gradually decreases to compress the refrigerant.
