Hydrovane is a brand of Gardner Denver
Your Ultimate Source For Vacuum and Pressure

why Hydrovane ?

rotary vane principle


The single rotor design, running at standard motor speeds facilitates the use of a direct drive arrangement, without the need for belts and pulleys.


Rotary sliding vane, single stage lubricant sealed compression element directly driven as standard by a high efficiency IP55 motor (except where specified). Europe (IE) and North America's (EISA) highest standard in motor efficiency.


A reliable compressed air supply is a necessity. With over three quarters of a million Hydrovane compressor sold to users world wide, we know we can satisfy your requirements.


Built-in pressure control ensures the compressor exactly matches air demand. Engineered for global markets, the compressors are rated for continuous operation in ambient up to 45 degrees C / 113 degrees F.



A: Air is drawn in through the intake valve.
B: Air is contained between the rotor and stator wall.
C: Air is compressed by decreasing volume. Lubricant is continually injected to cool, seal and lubricate.
D: High pressure air passes into the primary oil separator.
E: Remaining traces of lubricant are removed in a final separator element, ensuring high quality air.
F: System air passes through the aftercooler, removing most of the condensate.
G: Lubricant is circulated by differential air pressure (No lubricant pump required). It passes through an air-blast lubricant cooler and filter before being returned to the compressor.
H: Air flow is regulated by an in built modulation system.
