How To Choose Industrial Air Compressor?

1. Definition of Industrial Air Compressor

The Industrial Air Compressor is a device to pressurize the air: with an electric or gasoline-powered engine, the device converts the power to potential energy stored in pressurized air. Its function is very similar to the function of an industrial pump: in summary, the industrial air compressor specializes in air and gas pressurization, while the pump specializes in liquids compressing.

Positive Displacement Air Compressor

In general, there’re two types of Industrial Air compressors: Positive and Dynamic Displacement. The processes of compressing air vary but the outcomes are relatively similar: the Positive Displacement Air Compressor compresses the air by decreasing its volume while the Dynamic Displacement Compressor pressurizes the air by generating airflow with a rotating blade.

2. Our Star Product: Screw Air Compressor

The Screw Air Compressor is a Positive Displacement type industrial air compressor.

Generally, there’re two meshing helical screws, which are known as male and female rotors inside the compressor. During the process of compression, the rotors turn in opposite directions to compress the air.

As a professional industrial air compressor manufacturer, Sollant can offer you a great variety of Screw Air Compressor, among which the main products are the following:


*Fixed Speed Screw Air Compressor

As its name indicates, the Fixed Speed Screw Air Compressor runs at a constant RPM (revolution per minute) unless turned off. This feature makes it an ideal choice for applications where there’s a constant compressed air demand 24/7.

*PM VSD Screw Air Compressor

Unlike the Fixed Speed Screw Air Compressor, the PM VSD Screw Air Compressor may run on 100%flow or fluctuate to less flow aligning with the current air demand. In summary, its RPM varies to meet the plant’s air demand and save energy.

*Integrated Screw Air Compressor

The biggest advantage of the Integrated Screw Air Compressor is that this compressor is comprised of air storage tank, cooler, dryer systems, etc, which are manipulated by an integrated control system.

*Two-Stage Screw Air Compressor

In a Two-Stage Screw Air Compressor, the air is pressurized twice while in a single-stage screw air compressor, the air is compressed only one time. Normally the Two-Stage Screw Air Compressor is more expansive than the single-stage type for there are more parts involved. However, the components in the two-stage type are smaller and require maintenance at less frequent intervals.

*Low-Pressure Screw Air Compressor VS High-Pressure Screw Air Compressor

Generally speaking, the higher the pressure capability of a particular horsepower air compressor, the lower the delivered air volume will be. Conversely, the lower the pressure capability of a particular horsepower air compressor, the higher the delivered air volume will be.
