Rolling Piston Compressors Market: Introduction
Rolling piston compressors are used for small capacity applications of up to 2 kW, such as domestic air conditioners and refrigerators. These compressors are included in the class of positive displacement compressors. Rolling piston compressors perform compression by reducing the volume of refrigerant. In this compressors rotating shaft of the compressor is eccentric with the rotor and its axis of rotation matches with centerline of the cylinder. The rotating motion of the roller creates reciprocation of the single vane which is positioned in non-rotating cylindrical block. The eccentricity of the shaft with reference to the roller enables suction and compression of the refrigerant. Rolling piston compressors are also called as fixed vane compressors.
Rolling piston compressors can function in any orientation in correspondence with gravitational field and acceleration or even in absence of acceleration and gravitation. Rolling piston compressors are compact in size, provide better performance, higher efficiency, and less weight than prior compressors. Increasing need for energy efficient compressors with minimum operation cost and less maintenance requirement is creating an escalation in demand for rolling piston compressors in the forecast period.
Rolling Piston Compressors Market: Dynamics
Rolling piston compressors are designed for operating at higher speeds than reciprocating pistons, this enables the reduction in weight and size of moving components with reduction in capacity and efficiency. Furthermore, rolling piston compressors have minimum lubrication requirement. These can perform satisfactorily while lubricated by a small amount of oil and circulated with refrigerant.
Rolling piston compressors have better tolerance to the entry of liquid slugs – oil or refrigerant or both. Comparing to other compressors, rolling piston compressors have less dependence on precise control of liquid inventories. These benefits over other compressors are driving the demand for rolling piston compressors.
Rolling piston compressors are undergoing development for application as the prime mover in a heat pump for vapour compression. These will provide positive prospects to the growth in demand for rolling piston compressors over the forecast period.
Some of the present developments in the rolling piston compressors are specific designs on which lubricating oil and refrigerant fluid are allowed to mix and flow together for specific applications in hermetic vapour/liquid flow system. Adoption of these design technologies by manufacturers is expected to propel the demand for rolling piston compressors market during the forecast period.
