Although the theory for a scroll compressor has been around for over a century, the technology is in fact pretty recent as 40 years ago. As the industry continues to advance, so is the need for dependable, clean and oil-free compressed air. Scroll compressors are ideal in commercial applications that include: medical, pharmaceutical, food, laboratory, textile, electronic devices, and production facilities.

Anywhere quiet, clean air is necessary, a heavy-duty scroll compressor may be the only way to go. They come in a multitude of sizes, up to 30 HP, that may produce just as much as 86 CFM! Scroll compressors make use of an extremely innovative (spiral) style that compresses atmosphere quietly with fewer moving parts and much less required maintenance.

Scroll air compressors use two spiral-shaped scroll items to compress air flow. One scroll can be stationary, meaning it’s set set up and doesn’t move, and the other fits within the stationary scroll and is moved in a tight circular motion without rotating. The shifting scroll presses against the within of the stationary scroll so that, as it moves in a circular movement, it pushes and traps atmosphere into little pockets between the two.

The pockets of air remain moved through the spiral screw jack china toward the guts. As the air techniques further toward the center of the spirals, the surroundings pockets become smaller, and the air flow in those pockets gets compressed.
