A scroll compressor is also referred to as a spiral compressor, a scroll pump or a scroll vacuum pump. The rotary spiral scroll design creates a continual compressed air flow over multiple stages and there is no need for oil lubrication. A scroll compressed air system runs quieter and more smoothly than a reciprocating version because there are only two moving parts – a fixed scroll and an orbital scroll. Fewer parts make the scroll compressor energy efficient, highly reliable, and less prone to mechanical failure. Compared with a rotary screw compressor, a scroll compressor vibrates less and is almost noiseless.
