Choosing an air compressor
When it comes to making a purchasing decision, our qualified team can guide you to ensure the correct unit is chosen to provide the best results for your business requirements. Power, efficiency, maintenance, and performance are always our primary focus and we can recommend a specific technology alongside any accompanying downstream equipment to best suit your needs.
When choosing a compressor, key things to consider include:
- Airflow and pressure
- Technology type e.g. rotary screw, vane, piston, portable etc.
- Purity requirements e.g. lubricated or oil free air compressor
Compressor sizing is an essential factor to get right as an undersized compressor could cause unwanted pressure drops whereas an oversized machine could lead to mechanical issues and an excess energy demand which could be costly.
Furthermore, technology type is important as matching the right type with your demand will yield more efficient results. For example, a rotary screw machine is best suited to continuous operation so is a popular choice for many industrial applications where constant demand is needed. Or, if you have flexible working requirements, you may require a portable air compressor to allow you to manoeuvre the equipment from site to site.
Another factor to give some thought to is noise, if the compressor is near the point of use then a low noise or even silent compressor will cause the least disruption.
