Global Screw Compressors Market


A screw compressor is a compressing device with two rotors – A male and a female rotor, the rotation of which in the opposite directions draws in air and causes the compression of the air. The male rotor drives the female rotor in case of an oil-injected screw compressor, and a timing gear drives both the rotors in case of an oil-free compressor. Screw compressors provide more reliable dry and clean compressed air as compared to reciprocating compressors. Usually, air losses occur in compressors due to heat at high speeds and leakage at low speeds. These losses do not occur in Screw Compressors, as the speed can be optimized. Also, since it does not have any valves, pistons or rings, there is no loss due to wear and tear and thus it can last longer, providing more compressed air per horsepower, thus saving energy costs as well. Another advantage of screw compressors is its low oil carry-over, which is 80% lesser when compared to piston units, which leads to better air quality even without the requirement of a built-in dryer. Due to its flexible installation facility and quitter work environment due to low noise production, industries are switching over to Screw Compressors.
