THE TWO TECHNOLOGIES COMPARED

Check out this comparison table outlining the differences between Piston Air Compressors and Screw Air Compressors.


YESTERDAYS
TECHNOLOGY

(Piston Air Compressors)

TODAYS
TECHNOLOGY

(Screw Air Compressors)
70-75% of the intake air

AIR YIELD

95% of the intake air
More air with lower energy costs
Greater than 80 dB (A)

SOUND LEVEL

MINI da 61 a 64 dB(A)
Almost as low as a household appliance
For intermittent use

OPERATION

Also for continuous use
An industrial technology
High content of residual oil and humidity

AIR QUALITY

Low oil content and dry air in the version with dryer
Cleaner air for better production
Alternating and pulsing

COMPRESSION

Continuous and constant
Uniform pressure in line for better functioning utilities
High

VIBRATIONS

Absent
More reliable components
From 7-10 times nominal value

STARTING CURRENT

From 3 to 5 times nominal
value in the star/delta version Lower energy consumption at start-up
Thermal circuit breaker

PROTEZIONI STANDARD

Magneto-thermal circuit breaker
Greater operation safety



Technological evolution,the ever greater needs of increasingly sophisticated users and respect for the environment are just three of the many reasons behind the MSM Mini’s design the small screw compressor with big compressor performance.
