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 40 degrees C / 104 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.|
