- It is used for specific technical purposes
- They are used for refrigeration units
- The most common configuration is the reciprocating piston
Quality Great offers Personalized It is important to ensure that the spool does not rub against the wall of the cylinder as the frictional force increases the warming up of the compressor
. A reciprocating compressor is much more expensive in regards to maintenance and energy usage. Compressed air is a form of energy that is essential in all modern industry facilities. Whether it is for pneumatically operated machines or compressed air cleaning guns, a compressed air tube and compressor are necessary in almost all industrial facilities. Contrary to the reciprocating compressor, screw compressors
only have two movable parts. The screws are complexly formed workpieces that move against and into one another. Through this movement, they transport the in-coming gas from one side of the screw to the other. Thereby, the space in between the screws becomes continually smaller, resulting in the compression of the in-coming gas. Screw compressors work significantly more quietly and efficiently than reciprocating compressors
. At the same time, they require a higher minimum speed and have specifically designed components.
