In the past the turbo or centrifugal compressor was kept as a mystery by most manufacturers. Due to it using velocity rather than direct compression as a means of achieving compression the air density, temperature, length of discharge tubes, the number of turbo wheels and speed were all factors that had to be taken into account when installing and operating a centrifugal unit.

Modern turbo compressors are not only more simple, they’re a lot more robust. In fact they are now available as variable speed units.
