Screw compressors from IKS belong to the family of rotary compressors. These are compressors that reduce the compression space by compressing intermeshing helical rotors to compress the volume of gases. This can be oil lubricated but also oil-free, further differentiates roughly between compressors without dryers and compressors with integrated refrigerated dryer.
Advantages of screw compressors
- Constant pressure
Ideal base load machine possible due to small designs
- High efficiency in continuous operation
Screw compressors are quieter than piston compressors
