Common Applications

Because of their versatility, industrial air compressors are used in many applications. They are commonly used in agricultural practices to ventilate silos and spray crops. They are also used to power machinery in manufacturing facilities in the oil and gas, food and beverage, electrical industries, and more. No matter what industry you plan to use an industrial air compressor for, it's important to choose one that's the right size to maximize performance and efficiency.

Tiered Technologies

Typical compressor technologies include reciprocating, rotary screw, rotary vane, scroll, and a few others. One technology is not right for every application. As an example, at low HP ranges such as 10 HP and below, several technology choices will work, but one will usually outperform the others depending upon the specifics of the application, including the needs and/or wants of the purchaser. If the air requirement is very intermittent, a reciprocating compressor is likely the best choice. As the application specifics change, the technology choice may change as well. The bottom line is when the technology choices are limited, compressors are pushed into the wrong applications and the end result is sub-optimal operating performance. Be sure you are considering all the appropriate technology choices for your application.
