Given their different capabilities, these types of air compressors all find different primary applications across many industries.
Oil-Injected Rotary Screw Compressors
These are excellent general-purpose air compressors, used in virtually all kinds of general manufacturing.
Oil-Free Rotary Screw Compressors
This type of compressor shares many strengths with their oil-injected counterparts, but they are specifically used in situations where air must remain pure, including pharmaceutical, chemical processing, food and beverage, and medical applications.
Oil-Free Rotary Tooth Compressors
Oil-free rotary tooth compressors are desirable in industries that prioritize ultra-clean, efficient air production. Examples include the semiconductor and electronics industries, along with biopharmaceuticals, clean packaging, and other medical-related applications.
These find use in both residential and industrial applications, offering energy-efficient, oil-free compression for laboratories and clean rooms alongside more general-purpose HVAC systems.
Reciprocating Piston Compressors
Reciprocating piston compressors are especially popular in the automotive industry for car and truck manufacturing and repair. They are also common in a variety of other light-medium duty manufacturing settings.
