Since the founding in 1906, Kellogg-American has been dedicated to design and engineer excellence and has established itself as a globally recognized industry leader in the reciprocating compressor market. Our mission has always been clear: to produce and develop a series of air reciprocating compressors that set the standard for durability under rugged commercial and industrial duty usage.
At the core of our success, is the design of our high-quality, time-proven Kellogg-American two-stage compressor pumps. Engineered with passion, each component is designed to provide over 4000 hours of constant commercial duty performance. Renowned for their durability, these pumps feature innovative elements such as ring flow pressure lubrication, which provides reliable oiling of the reciprocating components, surpassing splash lube systems. The inclusion of head and centrifugal unloaders, large-diameter, fully finned intercoolers, Swedish steel cushioned disc valves, not reed valves from many competitors, the crankshaft is supported by bearings at each end, vs. the lower cost cantilevered bearing arrangement of many of Kellogg’s competitors, and an all-cast iron construction (crankcase, cylinders, and cylinder heads) sets our pump apart from cheaper, aluminum-based alternatives.

Kellogg-American Industrial Electric Air Compressors. Engineered and built for rugged use, these stationary compressors are Equipped with the legendary Kellogg American ring flow pressure lube Pump, Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC) Motors, IEC Rated Magnetic Starters, expanded steel belt guards (no bird cage or plastic style) and ASME Certified Tanks.
Additionally, Kellogg produces Gasoline and Diesel engine mobile Air Compressors, fitted with either Honda or Kohler engines. We use Conrader air valves upon request. All of our mobile and truck mounted compressors feature our legendary Kellogg American ring flow pressure lube Pumps ensuring a long operating life with dependable and reliable performance.
Our dedicated engineering and manufacturing team monitors every aspect of the manufacturing process, from raw castings, to machined components, to the final assembled product with best in component manufacturing, and a perfected end of line test procedure that few of our competitors utilize.
At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. We believe that heavy-duty, fully loaded machines deserve nothing less than the assembly and testing to guarantee a long-lasting product. Our crankcase proudly says Kellogg, for one good reason: it is the best performing, best value, long running life, rebuildable, compressor in the market today!
