[video] Ingersoll Rand – double stage rotary screw air-end, how they work

They provide increased reliability by reducing the compression ratio required for each stage resulting in lower bearing thrust loads and increased airend life.

Sounds logical, but they probably come with a big price tag, and they have more moving parts, which can be a disadvantage.
