Rotary vane compressors have proven as highly efficient and reliable machines for more than 50 years. Despite this fact, many industrial professionals remain skeptical of these compressors, and instead rely on traditional rotary screw units.
However, individuals often choose screw compressors over rotary vanes due to common misconceptions or inaccuracies regarding the rotary vane technology, such as:
- Rotary vane compressors consume large amounts of energy.
- Rotary vane compressors are prone to wear and need constant maintenance.
- Rotary vane compressors generate a lot of noise and are incredibly loud.
