What is scroll compressor?

A scroll compressor has one fixed scroll which remains stationary and another moving or orbiting scroll that rotates through the use of a swing link. When this happens, the pockets of refrigerant between the two scrolls are slowly pushed to the center of the two scrolls, causing the reduction of the volume of the gas.

What is the difference between screw and scroll compressor?

Scroll air compressors work well in both low duty cycles and high duty cycles. With a reciprocating air compressor, you don’t normally want a 100% duty cycle. With a rotary screw air compressor, you normally don’t want a duty cycle below 50%. Scrolls operate well in all duty cycles.

Which compressor is better, rotary or scroll?

The cooling speed of an inverter compressor is pretty faster than a normal compressor.

  • The power consumption rate for an inverter compressor is pretty lower than a traditional rotary compressor.
  • The adjustable speed option measures the temperature and comes up at a speed that regular rotary compressors don’t.
  • What are the disadvantages of a scroll compressor?
