Consider The Unseen Costs When Buying a Nevada Air Compressor

Nevada Air Compressor at ACN

Nevada Air CompressorPlanning to buy a Nevada air compressor or rotary screw compressor for your shop? Although the convenience of constant air supply sounds appealing, don’t rule out traditional reciprocating piston compressors as an option. Consider all the upfront and long-term costs. Then choose between the two types. And then give Air Center of Nevada a call with any questions!

Piston compressors have a much simpler design than rotary compressors. As a result, they have a much lower purchase price. The additional components of rotary compressors, such as liquid cooling systems and air/oil separators, add a lot to the cost when considering Nevada air compressors.

One advantage of piston compressors is that they only use electricity when they’re compressing air. On the contrary, rotary compressors are designed to run continuously. Even when they’re not compressing air. Granted, some rotary compressors automatically go into standby mode after idling for five or 10 minutes. Nonetheless, that’s still five or 10 minutes of wasted energy. That can significantly impact the electric bill.

Keeping Your Nevada Air Compressor Maintained

Compressed air is used widely throughout industry. It is often considered the “4th utility” at many facilities. The history of air compressors as a tool dates back to antiquity. Man has used air compression for thousands of years to heat his home, cook food, and move objects.

Consider the physical location of your own Nevada air compressor in relation to other equipment, noise level requirements and ventilation.
