Rotary Screw Compressors

You know that you need quality air compression services for your business, but there are several different types of air compressors out there, such as the rotary screw air compressor. Which is right for you? What does a rotary screw air compressor do and how does it work? Learn more right here.

How Does a Rotary Screw Air Compressor Work?

Like the reciprocating air compressor, the rotary screw air compressor is a positive displacement air compressor. The mechanism of the rotary screw air compressor consists of rotary lobes or screws which turn the air as it enters the intake manifold into a smaller and smaller space, compressing it as it goes until it sufficiently compresses and then discharges the air for use in your applications.

What Are the Benefits of the Rotary Screw Air Compressor?

Rotary screw air compressors are very popular because they are less expensive than many other types of air compressors and are relatively easy and affordable to install and maintain. These are high-speed compressors that are not quite as energy-efficient as reciprocating air compressors, but they are much more suitable for continuous duty operations.

What Applications and Industries Can a Rotary Screw Air Compressor be Used For?

You can use rotary screw air compressors in any of the industries which commonly use reciprocating air compressors, like the food and beverage, oil and gas, or refrigeration industries. Any application that operates continuously or features 24/7 manufacturing will be much better served by rotary screw technology.

How Does This Type of Air Compressor Differ From Other Types of Compressors?

The main difference between the rotary screw air compressor and the reciprocating air compressor is the use of rotary elements to compress the air rather than a piston system. Positive displacement air compressors like the rotary screw air compressor are also differentiated from dynamic compressors, such as centrifugal compressors, which pressurize air using a high speed impeller.
