Every rotary screw manufacturer offers a tank mounted screw compressor. Tank mounted air systems are generally used for smaller applications (8.6 - 125 CFM) and the major benefit is the ease of installation and space
Manufacturers of Rotary Screw Compressors offer different features, our experts generally promote screw compressors that offer these features for the following reasons:
|Sound Enclosures||Reducing the sound level, they can be installed in the fabrication area|
|Tank Mounted||Space Saving Designs, ASME Coded Air Tanks – normally on 60, 80, 120 gallon tanks.|
|TEFC Drive Motor||Which stands for “Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled” Motor, these are great motors for dirty environments. ODP motors (Open Drip Proof) are generally less expensive and require maintenance)|
Why buy new vs. used air compressors? Remember, there is a reason why someone traded in their used air compressor; potential compressor repairs on a used compressor could far exceed the cost of a new one.
Compressor manufacturers offer a service network to support their products. Once a machine is purchased from Compressor World - one of our experts will forward the local service centers information. All warranties and future service (preventative maintenance) can be done with from the manufacturers service center.
I found the rotary screw compressor, what else should I know before buying this compressor?
Once you have chosen the right rotary screw compressor for your facility, you will need to know the right voltage. You have either single or three phase power and the options would be:
Single Phase (3, 5 & 7.5 Horsepower)
Three Phase (All)
We also ask what pressure you want the compressor set for, the standard pressure in the industry is 125 PSI but in some cases customers ask for 150 or 175 PSI. For every 1 PSIG change from rated pressure, the brake horsepower will change 0.5% from the rated BHP. Think about decreasing your header pressure and start saving energy.
