Hydrovane 23 Rotary Vane Compressor

The 23 series Hydrovane Compressors are oil sealed sliding vane rotary air compressors directly driven by electric motors.

Built-in pressure control ensures the compressor exactly matches the air demand and is rated for continuous operation in ambient temperatures up to 45° C / 113°  F

Unlike other types of compressors, Hydrovane’s produce air using a rotor within a cylindrical housing which offers many advantages including very quiet and reliable operation. You get smooth pulse free air from a Hydrovane in contrast to other compressors so you do not need an air receiver,

Hydrovane’s are also vibration free with white metal bushes in place of contact bearings to avoid major expense on overhauls in years to come. Suitable for all industrial application with a need for quiet, high quality and dependable air supply.
