Although the idea for a scroll compressor has been around for over a century, the screw jack china technology is actually pretty recent as 40 years ago. As the industry continues to advance, so is the dependence on dependable, clean and oil-free compressed atmosphere. Scroll compressors are ideal in industrial applications that include: medical, pharmaceutical, meals, laboratory, textile, electronics, and production facilities.

Anywhere quiet, climate is required, a heavy-duty scroll compressor is the only way to go. They come in a multitude of sizes, up to 30 HP, which can produce as much as 86 CFM! Scroll compressors use a very innovative (spiral) style that compresses atmosphere quietly with fewer shifting parts and much less required maintenance.

Scroll air compressors use two spiral-shaped scroll pieces to compress atmosphere. One scroll is definitely stationary, meaning it’s set in place and doesn’t move, and the other fits in the stationary scroll and is definitely moved in a good circular motion without rotating. The moving scroll presses against the within of the stationary scroll so that, as it movements in a circular motion, it pushes and traps air flow into small pockets between the two.

The pockets of air continue being moved through the spiral toward the center. As the air movements further toward the center of the spirals, the atmosphere pockets become smaller, and the surroundings in those pockets gets compressed.
