5 Advantages Of A Rotary Screw Air Compressor



Rotary screw air compressors are now relied upon by many industries such as compressors material handling, spray painting and machine tools due to their durability and safety. Let us look at five of their inherent advantages:

Energy efficiency

Almost 80% of total air compressor costs are related to energy usage, while the other costs are related to the compressor itself. These high energy costs can be evidenced by their presence on your monthly electricity bill.

Therefore, when purchasing an air compressor, you need to consider energy efficiency which is most important factor. Rotary screw air compressors deliver more air for less energy. Their advanced design enhances volumetric efficiency and leads to reduction in the amount of energy required to deliver the air.

Rotary screw air compressors run with minimal friction, and hence can achieve high mechanical efficiencies.

Compressor uptime

Your screw air compressor can run at 100% of their rated capacity for a full 24-hour workday without experiencing any premature wear or damage.

Due to the high uptime of rotary screw air compressors, smaller machines can be used, leading to a lot of savings in electricity bills. 

Air quality

High-quality air is an important factor for air compression systems and rotary screw air compressors are highly valued for the same.. Rotary screw air compressors have high-efficiency filtration systems and ensure very little oil carryover enters the air system. Equipment damage and product contamination is thus prevented. 

Life expectancy

Rotary screw air compressors last for a long time, because of low operating speeds, minimal friction, and simple engineering. The initial investment you make on rotary screw air compressors is worth in terms of ROI. 

Safety and convenience

Rotary screw air compressors are safe. They deliver air continuously for the required purposes and can work at high temperatures or in low conditions as per the requirement. Rotary screw air compressors have up to 70% less of parts, hence there is a huge saving in maintenance costs.

To conclude, the advantages of rotary screw air compressors are a valid reason for using them in many applications in industry. It improves energy efficiency and air quality while reducing costs incurred on maintenance.
