Compressed Air Consultants, Inc are independent experts at compressed air system improvements. Rather than solve problems by selling compressors, we do root cause analysis in demand, distribution and supply that usually results in better air pressure stability and air quality while also turning compressors off. We are recognized by several organizations as best in class. That's easy to say, and we'd be enthused to prove it to you.
Compressed Air - Air compressed to a pressure higher than atmospheric pressure, usually accomplished via mechanical means.
Types of Air Compressors
Positive Displacement - Air is trapped in a compression chamber and the volume is mechanically reduced, causing a rise in pressure.
Reciprocating - Seen in the image to the right, a piston reduces the volume of the cylinder compressing the air to a higher pressure.
Rotary Screw - A male and female rotary screws mesh and compress the air as it moves along the screws. There are two types, Lubricant-Injected and Lubricant-Free.
Dynamic - Compresses air by imparting velocity energy and converting it to pressure energy.
Centrifugal - An impeller rotates at speeds that may exceed 50,000rpm, the air is then reduced in a diffuser and volute.
