A rotary screw compressor comprises rotors, a motor, oil vessel, fan, filters, and possibly an integrated dryer. Regardless of motor or type, these machines are designed to be durable and fairly self-sufficient.

If you've had your rotary screw compressor set up for at least 10 years, it might be time for a replacement. While it might seem counterproductive to buy a new machine, doing so could save you money.
As with all machinery, the latest models tend to run more efficiently than their predecessors. Also, you run the risk of no longer having access to OEM parts & service.
It's usually not worth the risk to get an aftermarket seal, filter, or non-certified valves. Servicing your air compressor after 10 years may become more work in the long run.
A lot can happen in a decade. It's possible your business' space expanded and requires an entirely different design and configuration. While adding more air compressors is a logical choice, you may actually need bigger equipment.
To save on total ownership costs, it's important to maximize efficiency for your air flow application. Our team of experts is happy to help assess what makes the most sense as your high speed air power needs change.
With Ceccato, you can add onboard control tools including Econtrol6i and ICONS. This technology allows you to check the real time status of your air compressor and prevent unnecessary downtime.
This enhanced maintenance is helpful to produce consistent, high pressure compressed air.
Chances are, if you're running a rotary screw compressor over 10 years old, it doesn't have these innovative tools.
No matter how well you maintain your rotary screw air compressor, it's likely less efficient than when you purchased it. Diminished by continuous heat from high volume compressed air, rotor mechanics generally wear over time.
When implementing the latest equipment, like our variable speed drive compressors, the up to 35% energy savings could cover the cost of a new air compressor. You’ll also reduce your environmental footprint with lower energy emissions.
If you're looking to make your business more green and energy efficient, investing in a new rotary screw air compressor is a good choice.
Regardless of whether or not you're using a Ceccato air compressor, our team is happy to help you make sound decisions for the future.
Our range of air compressors includes both oil-injected and oil-free to meet nearly any type of industrial application.
