The Different Types Of An Industrial Air Compressor In Toronto


An air compressor is a device that converts power into kinetic energy by pressurizing air. A highly efficient, industrial air compressor in Toronto is crucial to sustainable production and manufacturing. Having the right equipment is just as important.

Here is Compressed Air International’s quick breakdown of air compressors:

  • Reciprocating Compressors, also known as piston compressors, are the most commonly used. They can produce energy both at very low and very high ranges.
  • Rotary Screw Compressors work by filling the air in the space between two helical screws, increasing air pressure. This type of equipment requires oil to function.
  • Centrifugal Compressor works by using high-speed spinning impellers to accelerate the air. This compressor uses velocity to increase pressure.
