There are several basic types of industrial air compressors, but most industrial air compressors fit into one of two categories: positive or negative displacement. Centrifugal compressors are included under negative displacement, while rotary screw models use positive displacement. These two major designs use different methods to force air into a pressurized state, and each is preferable for different applications. Our equipment professionals can help you find an air compressor with the right capabilities for your facility.
Air Compressors are used in many different industries, including agriculture, automotive, food processing, manufacturing, metal fabrication, and textiles. Each site has its own specific air compressor needs. Generally, industrial air compressors are used to produce large volumes of air for large-scale processes and are designed to have a long life under normal circumstances and with the help of regular maintenance. As you consider whether to purchase a centrifugal, screw, or other compressor design, be sure to conduct careful research and consider both traditional and newer options.
Buying a brand new air compressor can place a heavy financial burden on a facility, particularly if an unexpected incident has caused an existing air compressor to fail before the end of its expected lifespan. A pre-owned or used air compressor that has had the benefit of regular maintenance and usage within its prescribed limits can offer many years of reliable service at a far lower up-front price than its brand new counterparts.
