Chicago Pneumatic Fixed-Speed Screw Compressors
AIRPLUS offers Chicago Pneumatic fixed-speed screw compressors which are preferred when a constant airflow is required. Gear or belt-driven models are available.
Fixed-speed screw compressors are simpler in design and operation than variable-speed screw compressors, making them a preferred choice in applications where a constant flow of compressed air is required. Since they operate at a fixed speed, there are no additional controls or systems needed to regulate the speed, which reduces the complexity of the compressor system.
Fixed-speed screw compressors are generally less expensive than variable-speed screw compressors, making them a cost-effective solution for applications where the demand for compressed air is consistent and predictable. Since they do not require sophisticated controls or monitoring systems, they are also less expensive to maintain over the long term.
Fixed-speed screw compressors are capable of operating at full load for extended periods of time, making them a preferred choice in applications where the compressed air demand is high and constant. Since they operate at a fixed speed, they can handle high load factors without the need for frequent adjustments or downtime, which can improve productivity and efficiency in the manufacturing process.
Fixed vs. Variable Speed Screw Compressors
When it comes to selecting a compressor for industrial applications, there are many factors to consider, including efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Two common types of compressors installed in industrial settings are fixed-speed screw compressors and variable-speed screw compressors. While both types have their advantages and disadvantages, there are certain scenarios where one may be more suitable than the other.
Fixed-speed screw compressors are the simpler and more cost-effective option, making them a popular choice for applications where a constant airflow is required. They operate at a constant speed, delivering a steady flow of compressed air at a consistent pressure. Fixed-speed screw compressors are best suited for applications where the demand for compressed air is relatively constant and predictable, such as in a manufacturing plant where production runs are consistent.
Variable-speed screw compressors are more energy-efficient and offer greater flexibility in meeting changing demands for compressed air. They operate at a range of speeds, automatically adjusting their output to match the required demand for compressed air. Variable-speed screw compressors are ideal for applications where demand for compressed air fluctuates, such as in a facility with varying production levels or processes that require intermittent bursts of compressed air.
The choice between a fixed and variable-speed screw compressor will ultimately depend on the specific needs and demands of the application. Careful consideration of factors such as energy efficiency, initial cost, and demand variability will help to determine which type of compressor is the best fit for your facility.

Experience your maximized productivity with an optimum compressed air solution provided by our CPG series compressors – Built-in cooling provides improved performance and reliable transmission for energy savings to ensure you get the most from your compressed air system!
Easy to use, efficient and reliable, the CPM Series meets the compressed air demands of tire shops, paint shops, car dealers, maintenance shops, etc. Easy to use and quiet by design, the CPM can be installed almost anywhere in the workshop, without disturbing your working environment. Base mounted or tank mounted, with or without a dryer, the CPM is a complete solution for your business.
A highly reliable gear transmission
A belt-driven compressor has a higher risk of downtime and maintenance- related costs. Unscheduled belt tensioning and replacement cause productivity losses and there is always the risk of post-service belt misalignment. That is why the CPCM comes with a gear drive transmission. You have no belts to replace and enjoy lower operating (service) costs. What is more, the CPCM is 3% more energy efficient compared to belt-driven compressors.
The CPD series offers high quality and reliable screw compressors ranging from 30 to 45 kW. Thanks to the low noise levels, the range can easily be placed into your work environment.
CPM TMDD series
CPM TMDD 4kW – 18.5kW oil-injected screw compressors series is built on a trustworthy technology which increases its efficiency and makes CPM TMDD screw compressor a reliable performer. These ranges are also suitable for more demanding applications and can be deployed in harsh working conditions.
