Variable speed compressors maintain a constant air pressure and the motor speed will be adjusted to meet the air demand of your production. Variable speed compressor units can run on 100% flow or can fluctuate to less flow to conserve energy and align with the current air demand.
Fixed speed compressors run either full throttle or are switched off. These are ideal in applications where there is a constant compressed air demand 24/7. The machine will run at a constant RPM unless turned off. The inlet valve will flutter based on when air is needed or not needed instead of ramping the engine up and down.
