Industrial air compressor
Learn About the Different Types of Industrial Air Compressors
September 13, 2016

There are different types of air compressors available in the market, each differing from the other by their functionality, pressure level and other physical properties. When looked through a broad lens, industrial air compressors can be classified into different categories based on functionality. The reciprocating piston, rotor vane and rotary screw are all different types of air compressors. They can also be classfied into either oil-lubed or oil-less types depending on the mode of cooling deployed.

Reciprocating Piston, Rotary Vane and Rotary Screw

Reciprocating piston air compressors are primarily built on the principle of mechanical pistons being used to create the air compression effect. This compares to the rotary vane compressors that have blades being used in air compression. The preceding types of industrial air compressors differ from the third category (rotary screw type) in that screws are used to compress the air when set in motion.

Learn more about industrial air compressors with some information on compressor drive and lubrication.

Cooling Method

Considered by the cooling methodology, industrial air compressors work on either oil-lube technology or the oil-less approaches as the mode of cooling them. Air compression is highly exothermic and large quantities of heat are often produced. To retain their operational working capacity, the excess heat should be dissipated away. It response, manufacturers of various air compressors rely on oil and oil-based substrates for cooling the compressors. Other air compressors use non-oil based cooling techniques such as dry carbon and air. This leads to the oil-free compressors being capable to run for longer hours than their oil-cooled counterparts.
