Quality components provides a long lifetime, and low maintenance costs.

Easy maintenance

Removable panels and easy access components allow for easy maintenance.

When To Choose a Variable Speed Screw Compressor?

Speed control of a compressor is regulated by variable speed drive, often known as VSD. This option uses the variable-speed drive technology to control the speed of the compressor in a correspondent fashion, demanding from the compressor only what is needed.

One large benefit to a speed-controlled compressor is reducing power cost, minimizing power surges and delivering a more constant pressure needed for the job at hand. When there is minimal demand, the drive runs slower using less electricity. The higher the demand, the VSD runs wide open and can operate anywhere in between depending on the system demand for air.

A non-VSD compressor, known as a fixed-speed air compressor, is either off or on. If it is on, it runs in full demand regardless of the need. Typically, a fifth of a factory’s electricity bill is credited to the production of compressed air. The VSD compressor may be a bit more expensive but uses less energy. A fixed-speed compressor is less expensive in comparison but uses more electricity. A professional air audit is the best way to evaluate which compressor is right for you.
