What is a rotary screw air compressor?

Screw or rotary air compressors are the most common air compressors used in industrial applications. The main reason is that screw air compressors have a 100% duty cycle. If you require a continuous demand for air, a screw-type air compressor is a perfect solution.

With rotary screw air compressors, filtered air enters the inlet of the air end where male and female rotors unmeshed. The air is trapped between the rotors and the air end housing. This space is reduced as the rotor reengages on the opposite side of the air end. Thus, the air is compressed and moved to the discharge port. Cooling fluid injected into the housing mixes with the air to seal, lubricate, and remove the heat generated by compression. This fluid forms a thin film between the rotors that virtually eliminates metal-to-metal contact and wear. The fluid is separated from the compressed air, cooled, filtered, and returned to the injection point. The compressed air passes through an aftercooler to reduce its temperature and is ready for the air treatment equipment. Rotary screw compressors are ideal for manufacturers because it has a 100% duty cycle. Rotary screw air compressors can run 24/7 without a break, and in fact, it usually works better and lasts longer when it’s used that way.

FAQ

Apart from superior energy efficiency, the following arguments justify the choice of screw air compressors:

  • Low Maintenance – With no pistons, bushings, connecting rods, or other parts that require regular maintenance, a screw compressor requires very little maintenance.
  • Low noise and vibration levels – compared to other air compression technologies, a screw compressor has fewer moving parts and is smaller in size.
  • No duty cycle – 100% duty cycle. A screw compressor supplies air continuously, without any adverse consequences.
