The general scroll concept has been around since the early 1900’s. Refrigeration is a common application for a scroll where the refrigerant that is being compressed helps cool, seal and lubricate the compression process. The scroll is known for high reliability, small footprint and vibration free operation. The PrecisionAir scroll air compressor is similar in concept utilizing close tolerance machining and tip seals to provide lubrication free (oil-free) operation. This results in the only maintenance/wear items being the tip seals and bearings.
Advantages of Scroll Air Compressor Technology
The PrecisionAir scroll is designed with the bearings outside of the heat affected zone (or center discharge where it is hottest) greatly improving bearing life.
