Screw compressors, or rotary air compressors, are often used in place of piston compressors in air compressor equipment when high volumes of compressed air are needed. Understanding the type of compressors you need based on your volume output requirements can help you choose the right industrial air compressors in San Jose.

This video takes a closer look at the principle behind the rotary air compressor, offering an internal view so you can see how the air compressor parts work together. You will see how the compressor’s spiral rotors work together to turn incoming low-pressure gas into highly-compressed air. Using this technique, industrial air compressors are capable of producing between 200-100,000 cubic meters of compressed air per hour.
