Benefits of Rotary Screw Air Compressors


Rotary screw compressors typically are used for continuous, commercial and industrial applications. Here are some of the primary advantages of a rotary screw compressor:

1. Lower noise outputs to meet OSHA requirements
2. Significant reduction in weight, typically by 50 percent
3. Easier maintenance due to fewer wearing parts to maintain or replace
4. Shock-less, non-wearing compression technology
5. Simplified maintenance procedures
6. Extremely low oil-carryover (as little as 3 ppm)
7. Less overall oil consumption
8. Proven reliability in harsh environments
9. Smaller physical footprint, typically by 50 percent
10. No “unbalanced” forces, less vibration transfer
11. Less heat generation
12. Zero reduction in capacity over time
