Common use of screw compressors is in compression of air. However, application of screw compressors in refrigeration and air conditioning, as well as in process gas compression is increasing rapidly in recent years. The existing experimental data basis for air compressors may conveniently serve as a source for performance estimation of these compressors. A procedure was derived in this work to find scale factors which connect compressors operating with different fluids and it was applied for performance estimation of refrigeration and process gas screw compressors on the basis of measurements obtained for air compressors. Refprop 8 by NIST was used for calculation of thermodynamic properties of real fluids and ideal gas relation was used for air.
