Rotary Screw Compressor
Commercial Air Compressor’s line of Industrial air compressors are designed for reliability, maximum efficiency, and easy maintenance
Commercial Air Compressor’s rotary screw industrial air compressors are available from 3 to 600 hp with capacities from 9 to 3044 cfm, and pressures up to 217 psig. All units are fully packaged, ready for operation. With sound levels as low as 61 dB(A), our compressors offer the best in quiet operation, energy efficiency, and reliability.
Designed for Maximum Reliability
In every machine Commercial Air Compressor builds you’ll find many features to enhance reliability and simplify maintenance, from the heavy gauge steel frame with double vibration isolation to the quick fluid change feature. Our airends are built to stand up to many years of tough service. TEFC motors are standard and we use pipe instead of lower cost tubing. Our air compressors have a well-planned cabinet design and component layout to reduce noise and footprint and provide easier access during preventive maintenance. The list goes on and on. Our customers expect excellence and we make it happen.
Lower Long Term Costs
Energy costs are a significant portion of any compressed air system’s total lifetime cost. In fact, the amount of energy required to run an air compressor for just one year can exceed the compressor purchase price. Over a period of 10 years, energy normally totals 70% of the overall costs.
Since Commercial Air Compressor’s energy-saving air compressors deliver up to 20% more air per kilowatt, the cost-efficient choice is clear.
Heat Recovery from Compressed Air
Energy cost reduction strategies are vital to staying competitive. One major source for optimization often overlooked is recovering the heat generated by compressors. Since as much as 100% of the electrical energy used by an industrial air compressor is converted into heat and 96% of this energy is available for recovery, the potential for savings is huge.
This heat is a gold mine of savings–Nearly all of this thermal energy can be recovered and put to use for a wide range of applications:
- Preheating boiler water
- Makeup air heating
- Supplemental space heating
- Heating process fluids
- Water heating for showers, bathrooms, etc.
- Industrial process heating
- Heat-driven chillers
- Heating food and beverage products
The key to unlocking these savings is to have a properly designed system with heat recovery integrated. Contact us for help in optimizing your system and getting it heat-recovery-ready!
