What is a Scroll Compressor?

A scroll air compressor, or spiral compressor, compresses air by drawing it it, trapping it, reducing the volume and discharging it at the outlet port. The scroll compressor that you see today, such as SpiralAIR, have been the result of modernised advancements in manufacturing technology, even thought the concept of a scroll compressor has been around for over 100 years.The scroll compressor is oil-free orbiting, or positive displacement compressor. The compressor has a stator spiral fixed in a housing, and a motor driven eccentric orbiting spiral. Continue reading
