How does a screw compressor work?
How a screw compressor works is a common question we get.
The working principle of a screw compressor is that it has two rotors, a male and a female, that rotate in opposite directions. The rotors trap air between them, and as the air is forced upwards, it is compressed. That is the basic working principle of a screw compressor. To learn more, read our blog on what is a screw compressor.
Should I get a screw or a piston compressor?
Whether to get a screw or a piston compressor for your business or process depends on what you need your compressed air for, how much air you need and how often you need to use it. A piston compressor might suffice as a general guide for smaller applications with infrequent use, but a screw compressor is typically more helpful for more consistent demand.
Unlike most pistons, a rotary screw compressor has a 100% duty cycle, which means that it can have the compressor running continuously for more extended periods without stopping (of course, you need to size your compressor right in the first place). Screw compressors typically operate at lower noise levels than a reciprocating piston compressor. Our blog has an air compressor guide to help you better understand the right choice for you.
How to size a compressor?
Sizing your rotary compressor is dependent on what you will use the compressed air for. There are many factors to take into consideration.
For example, the application it is used for, and how far from the point of use the compressor is located. But it is also essential to consider the future of your business and operation, perhaps you are looking to expand in the near future, and it could be worth considering this when you size it. You can learn more about how to size your compressor in our blog section.
How to select the right screw compressor?
There are many types of compressor options to choose from; it is crucial to consider the size you will need as the size will relate to what volumes of air you need for your operations. You should consider the pressure you need for your application and if there needs to be a storage tank (also known as an air receiver) to manage your demand for compressed air. When selecting the right screw compressor, you also need to consider if you need a fixed or variable speed drive.
Also, consider the service and operation of a compressor and what it might mean to your business. Do you have enough resources? Do you have the proper service contracts in place? The best step is to speak to a compressed air expert first.
What is the price of a screw compressor?
When buying a new screw compressor, it is easy to start with the price, but the best might be to consider the cost over the total life of the compressor. Owning a compressor can be like owning a car; regular service is needed, and it uses energy to run. So taking the time to explore the options, including variable speed compressors, can be the best deal in the long run.
