Industrial air compressors serve a few unique crafts in the industrial world. They can provide oxygen for high temperature kilns, keeping their powerful fires blazing bright, they can pump air through long lines to power pneumatic tools, they can provide a high pressure force that helps strips paint, and they can send parcels through bank teller tubes. To accomplish these tasks, air compressors need to be powerful, durable, and efficient. The durability and power come from the manufacturers you know and trust like Sullair and Ingersoll Rand. The efficiency comes from powerful diesel fuel and efficient rotary screws.
Diesel fuel provides more power per unit of fuel than natural gas and gasoline, so you get more out of every drop. Rotary screw compressors deliver more air consistently and at a constant pressure, providing you with an efficient volume of viable air. By channeling the air through dual channeled cylinders, the compressor can continually drive air without any downtime, unlike reciprocating compressors which drive air, reset, and drive air again.
Industrial air compressors come in oiled an oil-free units, with oil-free units reducing the need for constant upkeep and oiled units producing a highly efficient flow of air and increased cooling capacity. Some compressors also feature aftercoolers to remove up to 80% of the moisture from compressed air, increasing air flow and prolonging compressor lifespans.
