What are the advantages of using a Rotary Screw Compressor?
Air compressors come in many types, rotary screw, piston, scroll, reciprocating, some are oil-free and other air compressors require oil
lubrication. Like many businesses, an efficient air compressor is at the heart of their operations. So, which type of compressor should
you choose? What makes a compressor, like a rotary screw, unique? Here are some clear cut benefits of equipping your business with a rotary
A lot of industries rely on air compressors for material handling and use for machine tools. Our Rotary screw compressors are highly popular
because they pose these 8 advantages:
1. Safe and Convenient
Rotary screw air compressors are incredibly convenient, given that they deliver air continuously for the required purposes. They are also
safe, and cases of accidents with the machines are almost unheard of.
2. Functions at extreme weather conditions
Rotary air compressors can work at high temperatures or in low conditions to your convenience. The machines can also work in areas where
other forms of energy are prohibited due to safety or temperatures levels. Our rotary screw compressors run continuously, and this
continuous duty function means that the rotary screw compressor can run all day, in all conditions without wearing out crucial
components of the machine.
3. They are designed to run tools that generate more power that typical equipment
And since their air flow rates are extremely high, rotary air compressors can power such equipment effectively.
4. They are easier to maintain
Many of the modern air compressors in the market have fewer parts that require maintenance. In fact, some rotary screw machines have up to
70% less of parts, which in turn lowers maintenance costs dramatically. Although easier to maintain, they do still need maintenance and
as long as you keep with a rotary
screw maintenance schedule,
you will likely be rewarded with many years of optimal productivity from your machine.
5. They run quietly despite their massive air flow
Rotary screw air compressors are generally quiet performers, with many of them having noise dampening technologies. That and the fact that
they are not huge in size makes them convenient to be stored anywhere and till provide a safe working environment. Many rotary screw
compressors are barely louder than a dishwasher, so you can still have conversations in your compressor room, and not feel like you have
to yell over the noise.
6. They are good energy conservers
Rotary screw machines are generally energy efficient, and they generate less heat than normal air compressors.
7. They consume less oil than other oil flooded air compressors.
In addition, they have minimum oil carryovers. Our rotary screw compressors do an exceptional job of sealing in the lubricating oil, which
means that your workshop or compressor room will be drier, cleaner, and suitable to situations that demand low air moisture.
8. They are designed to last
Rotary screw air compressors are designed to serve you for many years, all along while having little or no capacity reduction.

A common questions asked is why do I need an air dryer for my compressor? Typically, air compressors produce water, and although the
water can be drained, there can still be aerosol and vapour droplets that are present. This is because water cannoet be compressed. Water
can damage your compressor by corroding the valves, pipes and machinery controls, which will cost you time and money to resolve. In
the long run, the cost of a new compressor is a small price to pay compared to the loss of production that could potentially arise due
to water damage in your compressor.
That cold, rainy, and in some places icey New Zealand winter is upon us, and with the following air compressor tips, your air system will be
prepared with the preferred temperatures, despite the weather outside. Regardless of whether or not it actually snows or freezes up where
you live, most winterisation service recommendations are also basic, solid maintenance procedures that will help extend the life and
operational efficiencies of air compressors regardless of whether you live in Queenstown or Northland.
Air compressors can fail for an assortment of different reasons: Normal wear and tear, lifespan and age of the unit, poor maintenance, power surge, install issues are just a few the come to mind. Check out this blog to find out our top 7 tips to ensure your compressor is looked
