Rotary Twin Screw Compressors for industrial refrigeration, gas processing and other industries
Rotary twin screw compressor technology was developed in the 1930s by a Swedish company, SRM, in collaboration with Howden. We manufactured the world’s first operational screw compressor and further developed the technology in the 1960s with the introduction of the oil injected twin screw compressor. This has revolutionised designs of refrigeration and gas handling plants worldwide.
Today, in thousands of installations worldwide, our oil injected screw compressors provide high integrity, low maintenance solutions for liquid chilling, direct refrigeration and gas compression applications.
Howden manufactures oil injected and oil free rotary twin screw compressor packages, and supplies bare shaft oil injected screw compressors.
