  • Patent number: 10883501
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a two-stage rotary compressor in which refrigerant inhaled into a compression space of a cylinder is compressed sequentially in two axially connected compression chambers and then is discharged. A rotary compressor according to an embodiment of the present disclosure includes a first compression unit and a second compression unit arranged on and along a single rotation shaft. Middle-pressure refrigerant discharged from the first compression unit flows into the second compression unit. A maximum gas force of the first compression unit and a maximum gas force of the second compression unit counteract with each other, thereby reducing a reaction force acting on a rotation shaft. According to the present disclosure, a single rotary compressor is configured to separately achieve the stroke volume increase and the compression period increase.
