What Are the Benefits of Rotary Screw Air Compressors?
All air compressors operate on some system of converting power — typically supplied by an electric motor or a gasoline or diesel engine — into pressurized air that serves as a form of energy to power everything from pneumatic construction tools to manufacturing and fabrication equipment.
Rotary screw air compressors come with some distinct benefits for businesses that need either fixed or variable volumes of compressed air to reliably meet their equipment needs.
What follows are just some of the benefits positive-displacement rotary screw air compressors provide:
- High mechanical energy transfer: By means of either lubricated or oil-less helical screw pairings — or rotary screws — these air compressors form an air-tight seal between their rotating screws. This is highly efficient in drawing in and forcing air through the intake mechanisms and eventually on to be pressurized and stored.
- Adaptability to working conditions: Because every business’s needs and location are unique, it’s good to consider the adaptability of rotatory screw air compressors. First, for commercial applications that have variable compressed air needs, such as in shift-based or off-peak production cycles, variable-speed electric rotary compressors offer the ability to adjust the speed at which their screws turn. This slows down their operation, as well as their subsequent consumption of energy when there’s lower utilization of compressed air. The added energy savings for businesses can be quite substantial when compared to fixed-speed compressors’ constant energy consumption. The second benefit is that rotary screw compressors can be cooled efficiently, meaning they’ll operate successfully in both higher temperatures and humidity levels than other types of compressors.
- Quiet operation and mobility: Due to lower vibrations and the quality components involved in rotary screw air compressors’ operations, these units run much quieter and are typically more mobile than other air compressor designs.
- Flexible control options: Advances in compressor control technologies allow for easy remote monitoring, intuitive control options, and custom programming.
