Types of Screw Compressors

Screw compressors come in two types: oil-injected and water-filled.

Water-filled screw compressors have no oil finishing and are characterised by their incredible efficiency, their sound insulation, and their ability to control pressure extremely well. Because of this, they use less energy than oil-injected rotary screw compressors, making them a popular choice for businesses.

Benefits of Screw Compressors

Rotary screw compressors are popular for spray painting, integration with machinery, and blasting for several reasons. Factories prefer screw compressors for these jobs because of these benefits:

  • Efficiency – Screw compressors can run high-power tools effectively and energy-efficiently.
  • Low-maintenance – Modern screw compressors consist of fewer components making them easy and affordable to maintain.
  • Safety – Accidents involving screw compressors are close to non-existent! They are also relatively quiet, protecting the hearing of factory workers.
  • Durability – Rotary screw compressors can run in extreme temperatures and are designed to last.

Frequently Asked Questions

Screw compressors are a type of air compressor that uses a rotary-type positive mechanism to compress air. They are most often used where continuous, large volumes of compressed air are required, for example, in paint sprayers, air tools, or abrasive blasting machinery.

Rotary screw compressors compress air and move it through a one-way valve into a compressor element. Inside the element, there are two types of rotors.  When they turn, they trap air between them and compress it. The air moves to the outlet to be used or is passed through a filter to remove oil.
