An industrial air compressor is a very useful piece of equipment suitable in various industries. It is used in many fields such as manufacturing, agriculture, and construction.

So, if you are planning to buy an industrial air compressor, knowing each type will give you an idea of the perfect compressor model for your needs. Having some background knowledge typically gives buyers a leg-up when shopping around.

 

Choosing the Right Equipment - The Different Types of Industrial Air Compressor

 

In this article, you will learn about the different types of industrial air compressors available in the market. It will guide you in choosing the suitable compressor for your unique requirements.

 

Various Types of Industrial Air Compressors Available in the Market

 

  • Reciprocating - This is a type of air compressor that is considered to be a positive displacement compressor and it works by reducing air in volume to produce an increased pressure. Reciprocating compressors are engineered with pumps driven by pistons, with cylinders that compress to displace air. Types of reciprocating air compressors include direct drive and belt drive.
  • Rotary Screw - Rotary screw air compressors also fall into the positive displacement compressor umbrella; this type of equipment uses two helical screws that are meshed together where the air is forced through to produce compressed air. This is a type of compressor that offers a smoother process compared to pistons. They are also very durable and easy to maintain.
  • Centrifugal - This is a type of industrial air compressor that works on a slightly different principle. It uses the momentum gained from a rotating disk to produce an output of pressurized air. It is a process called dynamic displacement. Being a continuous process, it leads to a more stable supply of pressurized air. This type of compressor is capable of producing extremely high pressure that makes it an ideal piece of equipment for heavy jobs and applications.

Now that you know the three main types of compressors, you can now start looking for the suitable industrial air compressor for your project. Make sure to review the entire product description to make sure you are buying the right one.
