Portable Commercial Air Compressor Rentals in Houston

Compressed air is crucial to many processes across a host of industries. In industrial settings, it is used to power several industrial tools such as pneumatic drills, grinders, pumps, sandblasters, spray guns, and more. Compressors harness the power of an electric motor to increase the pressure of process air. NiGen provides rotary screw air compressors, which are some of the most popular compressor variants utilized in industries today.

How Our Compressors Work

Air compressors operate on the principle that the air pressure within a closed system (non-vacuum) increases as its volume decreases. Rotary screw compressors convert electrical energy into mechanical energy using a motor and rotary positive-displacement mechanism comprising two meshing helical screws. Air entering into the device via an inlet valve passes through the small clearances between the screws, which increases the gas pressure by reducing the volume as they rotate at high speed. The compressed air then passes through the outlet to the process or channeled into an air dryer for vapor removal. Rotary screw compressors may be oil-flooded or oil-free, depending on the presence of lubrication in the compression chamber.

Industrial Air Compressor Rental vs. Purchase: Which is Better?

High-pressure air compressor rentals may hold significant benefits over purchases, depending on your organization’s goals. Renting an industrial air compressor rather than making an outright purchase allows your organization to reduce its cost of ownership and lower its capital operating costs. Small or medium-sized companies that tend to scale quickly or organizations with planned divestments in the short term can also benefit from owning fewer assets.
