Custom Oil-Free Compressor and Vacuum Pump Solutions
Scroll Technology for Space Development and Flight

Scroll technology from Air Squared provides public and private companies the advanced compressor or vacuum pump solution they need to explore tomorrow’s frontier.

On April 20, 2021, a compact scroll compressor onboard the Perseverance rover helped NASA produce oxygen on another planet for the first time. The achievement represents the biggest milestone in Air Squared history, only made possible by an engineering team deeply rooted in innovation for over thirty years.

Air Squared understands solving complex engineering challenges requires thinking outside the box. From lightweight compressor designs for environmental control systems to a first-of-its-kind spinning scroll compressor for next-generation spacesuits, Air Squared will continue to support space development and flight by continuing to challenge what’s possible with scroll technology.

Ultra-Lightweight

Spinning scroll technology provides space applications the lightest compressor and vacuum pump solution available.

Oil-Free Design

Oil-free scroll technology offers a non-lubricated alternative to traditional technology like piston, diaphragm, and vane.

Compact Footprint

Unique staged and co-rotating scroll configurations allow scroll compressors and vacuum pumps to fit in small envelopes without sacrificing performance.

High-Efficiency

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

Gases Other Than Air

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

Elevated Temperatures

Using patented liquid-cooled scroll technology and stainless steel or other alloys, solutions can be designed to withstand harsh temperatures and environmental conditions.
