Often, when it comes to choosing an air compressor, there is a choice between types and sizes of compressors. Do you choose a standard reciprocating compressor, or do you go with a more modern lubricated screw? Depending on how you use your compressed air, and how the compressor is installed, the operating costs may be quite different for the two choices, and not in the way you might think. Today we’re comparing a rotary screw air compressor vs. piston compressor in GA.
Reciprocating compressors use pistons to compress the air to the line pressure you desire. They are simple units, often mounted on a small receiver tank, and they usually run in start/stop mode on a mechanical pressure switch. You can certainly tell when they are running because the pistons create a lot of noise.
