Screw Compressors: Oil-free Technology Benefits
In modern productions are used to compress the air high screw compressors and piston is not familiar to us. Screw compressors emit little noise at work, producing cleaner air, they do not inherent harmful to human health vibration. Furthermore, it is screw compressors are capable of supplying a continuous flow of air, without the jumps and disruptions. All these advantages are achieved by introducing a mechanism special design. So, screw compressors are, in summary form, the two screws that rotate in opposite directions and thus drives the air between his teeth. Gradually, the air contracts and to the outlet nozzle it arrives already under pressure of several atmospheres (the exact characteristics depend on the model of screw compressors).
It is clear that such work has no vibration, no high-level noise, no other unpleasant phenomena. A movement of air between the screw goes smoothly, without pressure surges. The result – a stable and continuous operation of any pneumatic tool, connected to such a screw compressor. Screw compressors and do not require such frequent maintenance, as the piston. On average, inspection and prevention of such devices are held 2-4 times less than similar work for reciprocating equipment. Affects a smaller number of rubbing parts and simpler design of the working part.
However, the market offers not only the conventional screw compressors, working with oil in the compression chamber, but also more advanced oil-free screw compressors. The fact that the air is injected into oil mist means no need for further purification and complex filtration system. Air immediately comes clean, free oily impurities, which is extremely important for such "demanding" areas of activity, such as medicine and pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, the lack of filters means that there will be no pressure losses associated with the movement through treatment systems.
