Custom Scroll Design

Contact Air Squared to learn how custom scroll design can support medical applications with the most advanced compressor and vacuum pump solution available.

Advanced Custom Design Capability for Medical Applications

For over twenty-five years, Air Squared has continuously challenged the limits of possibility with scroll technology. With an ever-expanding range of custom design capability, put our long history of innovation to work in your application.

Oil-Free Scroll Design

Orbiting scroll technology offers a quiet oil-free alternative to traditional technology like piston, diaphragm, and vain.

Miniature Scroll Design

Advancements in machining capability allow scroll designs to accommodate even the most demanding size and weight requirement.


When minimal power consumption is critical, leverage the inherent efficiency advantage of orbiting scroll technology.

High Vacuum

Using patented coatings and staged scroll technology, scroll vacuum pumps can achieve high vacuum without the need for a roughing pump.

Gases other than Air

With several patented semi-hermetic configurations, scroll compressors and vacuum pumps can be used for far more than moving air.
