A screw compressor is also known as a rotary screw compressor. The reason it is called a screw compressor is because it has two special screws that spin together, trapping air between them and squeezing it like a balloon until it gets super strong. This strong air is perfect for powering tools in factories, like drills and spray guns, making it a popular choice for big jobs.

Screw compressors are usually placed in a cabinet. What this does is keep the noise levels down and keeps working hard without much fuss, that’s why it’s such a favourite for heavier tasks!

  • Screw compressors are incredibly productive! They provide a continuous flow of air. This makes them ideal for applications that require a constant air supply, such as sandblasting and spray painting and manufacturing.
  • Many screw compressors are oil free, meaning they are ideal for applications where clean air is critical, such as in the food and beverage industry.
  • Some screw compressors have oil injected into them. These are generally more efficient and offer better cooling for the rotors, making them suitable for heavy duty applications.
  • They are relatively energy-efficient, especially at higher air flow rates.
  • Less maintenance: compared to other types of air compressor, screw compressors usually require much less maintenance and so are more reliable.

Screw compressors are unlikely to be suitable for home garage use, unless you are a very keen hobbyist with a big garage space. You wouldn’t buy a screw compressor for a few light DIY tasks or to inflate your tyres.

These machines are powerful! Therefore, we strongly advise you get in touch if you have any questions about screw compressors. We will happily guide you through what compressor you might need depending on what you need it for, how frequently you will use it and the space you have available to you.
