A rotary screw is a compressor which utilizes two intermeshing helical rotors to
trap a volume of air, then compress it to a higher pressure. Rotary screw compressors
can be run at lower temperatures, and for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These compressors
are all stationary, and generally have a specific air piping system that runs through
the warehouse, industrial plant or shop in which it is located. Many local shops that
we have seen also use regular air hose for its flexibility and mobility.
