You work hard and expect the same from your equipment. When it comes to air compressors, nothing outworks a rotary screw air compressor in GA. These workhorses are designed to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 52 weeks a year, for many years.
Why Go Rotary?
Get the job done faster. You’ll never have to wait for your compressor to play catch-up again. With a 100% duty cycle, they are designed to run continuously without overheating, which saves you time (and a potential headache).
Can be used longer. Because the internal rotors are oil-sealed, parts last years longer and maintain the same performance throughout the compressor’s life. The internal screws don’t touch, which means there is no friction, less maintenance, and fewer replacements on your investment.
Runs more quietly. If you run a business, don’t subject your employees or customers to uncomfortably loud and potentially unsafe environments. Rotary screw air compressors in GA run quietly, so they can be mounted close to workspaces without requiring hearing protection.
They provide cost and energy savings. Although the upfront cost may be higher than reciprocating compressors, what you’ll get is longer working life, increased capabilities, and the dependability only superior rotary screw technology can deliver. Over time, rotary screw air compressors in GA pay for themselves by running cleaner and more efficiently, meaning you’ll have to spend much less on filters, replacement parts, and accessories, all while enjoying a longer compressor life.
With reciprocating-type air compressors, the cost of energy required to run it can exceed the purchase price in one year, while rotary screw compressors will amount to roughly 70% of the purchase price in about 10 years. Many of rotary screw models are even Energy Star rated, using 20-30% less energy than federal standards.
How Rotary Screw Air Compressors in GA Work
The rotary screw compressor gets its name from the way they are powered. As air enters a sealed chamber, it is trapped and squeezed between two rotating screws. As the screws inter-mesh, they reduce the volume of trapped air and deliver it compressed, at the proper pressure level.
Rotary Screw Considerations
Horsepower (HP): One HP is the force needed to lift 550 lbs. one foot per second.
Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM): This refers to the amount of air velocity that passes through a medium. Think of a water hose where you can measure the quantity of water that is possible to pass through in one minute.
Pounds per Square Inch (PSI): This is the measure of pressure that a compressor can produce (in pounds) per square inch of space.
Electrical Phase: You need to choose single-phase or three-phase electricity. Single-phase electricity is found in residential settings while three-phase electricity is most typically found in industrial locations. Consult with your electrician and local codes to determine which type you have.
If you’re tired of your piston compressor not working as hard as you do, then do yourself a favor and upgrade.
