How do Air Compressors Work?

Air compressors are available in several different designs. Each type of air compressor has a slightly different function. To understand what type of air compressor is best for your needs, you'll want to learn a bit more about the various types available. Engineering Sales Associates can recommend several types of air compressor units that are ideal for power production in the 600HP range.

What are Air Compressors Used For?

You may wonder why you would want to rent an air compressor for your commercial and industrial needs. An air compressor can be used for a wide range of purposes. Air compressors can supply clean air to gas cylinders, provide compressed air to power tools, and provide compressed air for equipment in your manufacturing plants. Air compressors are valuable pieces of equipment in many industries including healthcare, manufacturing, and other industries where pressurized air is imperative.

Types of Air Compressors

Rotary screw air compressors are common compressors. They include internal screws that squeeze air in the unit to the desired pressure level. The air is compressed inside the unit until it reaches the optimal pressure level. Some rotary screw compressors adjust the speed of their engine to optimize efficiency. Because the screws compress air in real-time as needed, they do not need a separate tank to store air. Most rotary screw compressors contain internal combustion engines. Larger units are stationary, but you may rent smaller portable units as well.

Piston air compressors are another type of air compressor. Unlike rotary screw air compressors, piston air compressors are built with a storage tank to hold compressed air. They are usually smaller in size than rotary screw compressors, and they are made with either internal combustion or an electric engine.
