Why is scroll compressor?


As the core component of a chiller, a compressor can account for 30% to 40% of the cost of the entire chiller . The quality of the refrigeration system is also closely related to the compressor. Therefore, It is very important to have an understanding of the compressor used in the machine before purchasing a chiller. A good compressor will have better performance in terms of service life, noise and energy efficiency ratio . Scroll compressors are the most commonly used compressors for box-type industrial chillers, either air-cooled or water-cooled.


Scroll compressor was invented by French engineer Leon Creux in 1905. Due to the limitations of processing technology , mass production did not begin until the early 1980s. In 1973,  American ADL. company put forward a research report on the scroll nitrogen compressor , and proved that the scroll compressor has the incomparable advantages of other compressors, so the large-scale engineering development and research of the scroll compressor has embarked on the road of rapid development.


1. There is no reciprocating motion mechanism, so the structure is simple, small in size, light in weight, less parts (especially less wearing parts), and high reliability;

2. Small torque change, high balance, small vibration, and stable operation, easy to operate and easy to realize automation;

3. High efficiency within its suitable cooling capacity range;

4. Low noise.


Excellent low temperature performance, high efficiency and energy saving (high volumetric efficiency ): In medium and low temperature applications, the volumetric efficiency is more than 30% higher than that of traditional piston machines.

Beautiful appearance, outdoor installation, space saving: the system design is compact, easy to install and maintain;

Smooth operation, low noise and vibration, reducing environmental impact.

The unique design of the scroll compressor makes it an energy-saving compressor in today's world. The main running part of the scroll compressor has no wear and tear, so it has a longer life and is known as a maintenance-free compressor . Scroll compressors run smoothly, with low vibration and quiet working environment, and are also known as 'super-static compressors'. The scroll compressor has a novel and precise structure, and has the advantages of small size, low noise, light weight, low vibration, low energy consumption, long life, continuous and stable gas transmission, reliable operation, and clean air source. Known as the 'New Revolutionary Compressor' and the 'Maintenance-Free Compressor', it is an ideal power source for pneumatic machinery and is widely used in diversified applications such as industry, agriculture, transportation, medical equipment, food processing, decoration, textiles and other occasions that require compressed air.
