In this first article, we will focus on the VMAC rotary screw air compressor.
Most competitive products are reciprocating “throwaway” compressors that are usually run until they breakdown, and are then replaced by another. With a VMAC rotary screw, you can:
- Work faster. VMAC rotary screw air compressors work as tirelessly as you do. With 30 CFM and 150 psi available, this VMAC system is proven to reduce downtime because no time is wasted waiting for air reservoir tanks to fill up. By getting jobs done faster, this means you can turn off the engine, which reduces costs, or you can get more jobs done, which improves profitability.
- Work longer. VMAC rotary screw air compressors run at 100% duty cycle, 100% of the time, without overheating. Most reciprocating or piston compressors are only 50% duty cycle, which is why they need a huge air reservoir tank. By having air available 100% of the time you can double your productivity.
- Work on anything. VMAC rotary screw air compressors provide enough power to operate the most common hand-held pneumatic tools – anything from a 1/4” impact wrench up to a 1” impact wrench, from burring tools, to die grinders – so you can fix equipment in the field without fear.
- Work with confidence. VMAC rotary screw air compressors are designed and manufactured in North America, with high grade materials that will outlast your truck. Reciprocating or piston compressors work very similarly to a piston engine, which is a positive wear machine – parts of it come into contact and eventually wear out because the pistons hammer the air down to compress it. The difference with a rotary screw is that no parts touch. Air is compressed when it is mixed with compressor oil and forced through the small spaces between the rotors. With proper maintenance rotary screws should theoretically last forever, and that’s why all VMAC air compressors come with a Lifetime Warranty.
Rotary screw technology in VMAC’s gas drive air compressor is just one reason why this product is the best gas-powered mobile air compressor on the market today. Stay tuned for more!
