When considering the purchase of an air compressor there are three
determining factors: application, operating requirements, and budget.
Reciprocating compressors have traditionally been the ideal compressor
choice for intermittent duty applications such as service vehicles, tire
shops, and general automotive repair. Rotary compressors are the optimal
compressor choice for continuous duty requirements such as auto body,
paint, and plant air.
Rotary compressors are typically available in two styles, rotary screw or
rotary vane. Rotary screw compressors are often the most commonly applied
rotary compressor. Depending on the manufacturer's philosophy, rotary screw
compressors vary in footprint, rotor speed, motor speed, and drive method.
