What is A Screw Compressor?

A Screw Compressor is an air compressor that uses two rotors (screws) to draw fresh air from outside and compress it to produce higher volumes of air compared to a reciprocating type air compressor.  The two screws sit inside of a housing called the air end of the machine and they are powered by an electric motor.  As the motor turns the screw the air is pulled in and trapped between the screws and pushed out.  A rotary screw compressor runs quieter and more efficiently than a typical reciprocating pump style compressor.  A rotary screw compressor is like an Indy race car meant to go fast and run for hours on end.  Buying a good used rotary screw compressor is a great investment for any shop or manufacturing company.  You can save thousands of dollars by buying a good used screw compressor.
