I never realized that rotary screw compressors could eliminate so much unnecessary compression. Is this something that is privately available or is it only commercially available? Thanks for sharing your tips with us!

@sfreddson:  Did you know that you commented on a 17-year-old article? 

Rotary screw compressors are available from a number of manufacturers, and are often used for applications requiring high air volume.  They are more expensive than reciprocating compressors, require more maintenance, and must be run frequently (or constantly).  They are quieter and more efficient than reciprocating compressors.
