The key to the success of the Hydrovane compressor is the unique rotary vane principle.The compressor operates at a very low speed providing total reliability and long component life.
The rotor, the only continually moving part, has a number of slots into which fit sliding vanes that ride on a film of oil. The rotor rotates within the stator. During rotation, centrifugal force extends the vanes from their slots, forming individual compression cells.
The regulated speed hydrovane compressors include all the benefits of the standard hydronvane compressor, plus a regulated speed motor to provide maximum efficiency by regulating the rotor speed to match fluctuating demands.
This low cost advantage will ensure consistent air delivery at various loads with a minimum energy demand.
Based on traditional, tried and tested technology, the vane compressor is directly driven at very low speed (1450rpm), offering unrivalled reliability. The rotor, the only continually moving part, has a number of slots machined along its length into which fit sliding vanes that ride on a film of oil.
The rotor rotates within a cylindrical stator. During rotation, centrifugal force extends the vanes from their slots, forming individual compression cells. Rotation decreases the cell volume, increasing the air pressure.
The heat generated by compression is controlled by pressurised oil injection.
The high pressure air is discharged through the outlet port with the remaining traces of oil removed by the final oil separator.
