Compressors

There are various types of compressors used for different applications. Here are some common types of compressors:

  • Piston Compressors: Piston compressors, also known as reciprocating compressors, use a piston and cylinder to compress gas. The piston moves up and down, creating a pressure difference to compress the gas. These compressors are often used for high-pressure applications, such as in industrial compressed air systems.
  • Screw Compressors: Screw compressors use two interlocking screws (rotors) to compress gas. As the rotors rotate, the gas is trapped between the screws and compressed. Screw compressors are known for their high efficiency and are widely used in industrial applications, such as compressed air systems in factories and workshops.
  • Scroll Compressors: Scroll compressors have two interlocking spirals, with one fixed and the other moving in an eccentric circular motion. As the moving spiral rotates, the gas is trapped between the spirals and compressed. Scroll compressors are often used in residential and commercial air conditioning systems.
  • Centrifugal Compressors: Centrifugal compressors use a rotating impeller to accelerate gas, after which it passes through a diffuser to convert kinetic energy into pressure energy. These compressors are suitable for high-flow, low-pressure applications, such as in gas plants and refrigeration systems.
  • Axial Compressors: Axial compressors compress gas through a series of rotating blades that move the gas axially. These compressors are primarily used in gas turbines and aircraft engines due to their high flow capacity.

In addition to these types, we distinguish Silent Compressors, Mobile Compressors, Portable Compressors, Silent Oil-Free Compressors, Oil-Lubricated Compressors

The choice of compressor type depends on factors such as the desired pressure, duty cycle, efficiency, noise production, and the specific application for which the compressor is used.
