A rotary screw compressor uses screws to force the gas into a smaller space. These can be quite compact or larger for industrial uses. The tighter the threads on the screws, the greater the compression. This type of compressor does tend to run a bit smoother and with less vibration than other types.
For tools that require greater pressure, or if you use multiple tools back to back, then you need a two stage compressor.
All reciprocating air compressors throw out some oil with the air they compress. When the tank reaches its designed pressure limit, a switch will interrupt electrical power to the motor. Simultaneously, a certain amount of oily air will be released into the shop environment. You may see oil collecting on the wall behind the compressor and on the pump and compressor as well over time. This is not cause for alarm but periodic cleaning may be needed.
