What Are Screw Compressors Used For?

Generally, screw air compressors are installed when large volumes of high-pressure air are required in commercial and industrial applications or where high-power air tools are used (such as construction sites). Some of the most common industries that utilise the screw compressor are food packaging factories and automated manufacturing systems. This model provides a good fit for these industries as they can withstand variations in the demand for pressurised air and are known for providing a continuous, steady load. Whereas piston compressors are generally better suited for smaller scale operations and residential use.

Are Screw Compressors and Rotary Screw Compressor the same?

Yes! A two names for the same machine – the Screw Air Compressors, Rotary Screw Air Compressors refer all to the same piece of equipment.

Why Are They Called Screw/Rotary Screw Compressor?

The compressor is referred to as a 'screw' or 'rotary screw' air compressor because of the machine's mechanisms that compress the air. Technically speaking, a rotary-screw compressor uses two very closely meshing helical screws, known as rotors, to compress the air. The rotary screw traps the air between two meshed rotors and reduces its volume as it moves down through the rotors; this volume reduction results in compressed air. So, you can see why the names 'screw air compressor' and 'rotary-screw air compressor' describe this machine.

Why Are Screw Air Compressors So Popular for Industrial Operations?

There is a range of reasons the screw compressors remain a popular choice for small to medium-size industrial operations, because of their capability with: 1. Withstanding demanding commercial and industrial environments Remaining robust and reliable even in taxing industrial settings; 2. due to the high-quality components, parts and materials of which they contain Providing high-quality pressurized air even in touch with climatic conditions, such as those found throughout Australia. 3. Small to medium-sized operations still look for some of the same features a residential buyer may look for; in that, they seek something compact, efficient, reliable, and quiet but with more agility in response to increasing loads and duty cycles. The screw air compressor is typically a portable compression system. These models are typically mounted on trailers and often referred to as construction compressors due to their prevalent use in Australia's construction industry.

Are Screw Compressors Usually Portable?

Rotary screw air compressors are typically a portable compression system. These models are typically mounted on trailers and often referred to as construction compressors due to their prevalent use in Australia's construction industry.
