Company

Kellogg-American engineering started with a clear mission; “Develop an industry leading series of air compressors, specifically for rugged commercial and industrial duty use”. This led to the design of high quality time proven Kellogg American two stage compressor pumps. The Kellogg-American compressor pump design is the most robust on the market today, with features such as oil ring lubrication, which provides much more reliable lubrication than a simple splash lube system. The pump includes head and centrifugal unloaders, large diameter fully finned intercoolers, Swedish steel cushioned disc valves, and the all iron construction as opposed to aluminum used in cheaper competitive units. This has made the Kellogg American pump the industry leader for decades.

Unlike the competition, our quality control group monitors all facets of manufacturing, from raw castings to finished product. This allows Kellogg-American to assure our customers the finest product possible. Heavy duty, fully loaded machines deserve the best in component manufacturing, assembly, and testing to assure a long lasting product. It is our mission to provide excellence in product design, engineering, and manufacturing and a total commitment to our customers.
