Discus Valve A reciprocating compressor valve design with a low clearance volume and larger bore
External Drive An external type of compressor motor drive, as opposed to a hermetic compressor
Cooling Tower The final device in many water-cooled systems, which rejects heat from the system into the atmosphere by evaporation of water
Compressor A vapor pump that pumps vapor (refrigerant or air) from one pressure level to a higher pressure level
Accumulator A storage tank located in the suction line of a compressor. It allows small amounts of liquid refrigerant to boil away before entering the compressor.

Eccentric An off-center device that rotates in a circle around a shaft
Head Another term for pressure, usually referring to gas or liquid
