Different Types of Industrial Compressors

Usually industrial compressors are used in factories where the gas is handled regularly. They ensure the gas leak is not allowed to take place and the resulting danger to human health and buildings.

Turbo Compressor

Common applications of this type include sulfur recovery, wastewater treatment, flue gas desulfurization, and others as an important component of the system blower. One of the main features of this design is a high efficiency. If you want to buy ‘pressure air accessories’ (which is also called ‘trykkluft tilbehr’ in the Norwegian language) then you can navigate various online sources.

Screw Compressor

This type of compression technology has been used around since the 1930s. It is used in applications where a large number of high air pressure is required. Due to the constant sweeping motion devices, there is almost no pulse or wave stream involved in the process, which can be a hazard when using a piston. This is a big advantage, allowing for the type of screw to be used in large industrial capacity and air tools heavy electricity.

It's not uncommon for companies to provide complete screw compressor systems as opposed to just the devices themselves.

Piston Compressor

As stated previously, the compressor piston which involves a high degree of pulsation or surging stream so it must be used with care and precision.

Piston type can generally be found in use in the food industry, and the petrochemical and oil refining industry where it is used for both hazardous and non-hazardous gas handling.
