The rotary screw air compressor is generally used to supply compressed air for large industrial applications, such as automated manufacturing systems and food packaging plants. They’re often used to replace piston compressors in situations where large volumes of high-pressure air are required.
If you’re looking to purchase or rent a rotary screw air compressor anywhere in central New England, we offer a wide selection here at ACG Air Compressor LLC. A rotary screw air compressor from ACG:
- Delivers clean, dry, consistent compressed air
- Carries a 100% duty cycle rating to run at full load all day long
- Quieter than an equivalent reciprocating compressor
- Provides low-cost reliability and efficiency
Rotary-screw compressors are commonly available in the 5-500 HP range and can produce air flows in excess of 2500 SCFM utilizing two meshing screws, known as rotors, with precise timing gears to maintain precise alignment and deliver outstanding compression. When spinning, the rotors of a rotary screw air compressor trap, push, and pressurize air between their grooves increasing air pressure by mechanically moving that air through smaller and smaller spatial chambers, condensing it along the way, ultimately pushing it out a release port or into a storage tank.
A high-quality rotary screw air compressor from ACG is safe and energy efficient.
When managed properly, a rotary screw air compressor provides a near-constant flow of controlled air only restricted by maximum temperatures and machine operating pressures. Most industrial rotary screw compressors can run 24/7 provided temperatures do not exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius), and their parts are cooled and lubricated with oil, water or additional air injection.
