Rotary Screw Compressors

air-compressor9Rotary screw compressors are a type of air compressor that utilizes a rotary-styled positive expulsion system. Also known as positive displacement compressors, these units convey pressurized air to tools such as pumps and power drills. Rotary screw compressors can greatly benefit from facilities that use equipment that requires a high amount of pressurized air. Here are some facts about rotary screw air compressors:

  • Rotary screw compressors are available in oil-cooled and oil free versions
  • Oil-filled rotary screw compressors utilize an oil-filled champed that provides coolant and sealant properties
  • Oil-free rotary screw compressors work in higher temperatures and tend to be less energy efficient
  • Rotary screw compressors contain systems that maintain proper temperature control and lubrication
  • Many consumers report that rotary screw compressors require low maintenance

As with any air compressor, it is important to do your homework on which type of rotary screw compressor best suits your needs. Keep in mind of the type of projection you are working on and whether or not your rotary screw compressor needs to be transportable. Try to find a rotary screw compressor that is within your budget and keep in mind that used products can work just as well as brand new units. And of course, contact a licensed professional if you have any questions.
