Rotary Vane Compressor FAQs

What is a rotary vane compressor?

A rotary vane compressor is a very popular type of compressor and is used by a wide range of sectors and industries. It is a small compact air compressor, which doesn’t take up much room, is able to provide necessary air supply and deliver great efficiency. It works by funnelling air into a rotary cylinder housing and squeezing the air into a thinner and thinner channel until it is forced out the other side housing. The centrifugal force created by the motion of the rotating cylinder forces the air to suddenly compress and be ready to be funnelled into a pressure hose and then, ready to be used by a tool or instrument.

What is a rotary vane compressor used for?

It can be used for any number of applications. If you work in the wine industry and need your product to be pressurized to speed up the process of fermentation, a rotary compressor is great.

If you work in the glow blowing industry, making great glass light bulbs for modern homes, an air compressor like the type we make, is great for you too.

If you work in dry cleaning the air compressor can be used for chemical applications. It will allow for more accurate applications and be more effective and precise in this role. It’s small and that means it can be fitted to a small store, great for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

If you work in a vehicle repair garage or perhaps just like to mend things at home, a small compact rotary compressor will suit you just fine too.

If you work in agriculture, and perhaps need air compression for the purposes of operating your equipment, cleaning, or perhaps suction power when it comes to milking cows, our rotary air compressor is perfect for you as well.

If you work in manufacturing, this air compressor can be used in any number of ways. Use the compressor for drilling, cutting, stamping or plasma cutters. Manufacturing is very complex and requires a reliable and efficient air compressor.

How does a rotary vane air compressor work?

It works by using centrifugal air compression. A cylindrical rotor sits in housing. Air is sucked into one end of the rotor and spun into the cylinder’s channels around the sides. The air is forced into a narrow pass, at great speed, which causes it to build to high pressure. As the air reaches the end of the narrow channel, it is quickly funnelled out the exit. While the air is in the rotor, it is mixed with oil lubricant.

The oil is heated by the rotor but is also filtered out before the air is released out of the pressure hose. The oil is used to provide longevity to the rotor, but it presents a challenge to then extract it from the air that is compressed. It is filtered and flowed through separators. This creates clean air that is compressed and ready to be used without clogging your tools.

Advantages of rotary vane air compressors

A rotary vane air compressor is compact and can be used by multiple industries. It’s very cost-efficient. It’s also the best compressor a small business owner can buy because it requires such little maintenance and yet, it is durable and simple to repair. The RPM is also very modest, with 3,000 to 8,000 RPM being the rage you can expect. Our compressors can last up to 100,000 hours of a lifetime which is incredibly high considering how little maintenance is required. With not many moving parts, the compressor is something that you can rely upon during hot days and really cold days. It means your business will keep running and your tools will keep working, so you can keep satisfying your customers.

The main selling point is how cheap they are to run, how little repairs you will need to make during the long life of the compressor and the sheer amount of savings you make. This time of compressor design is used for vacuums and as you know, it’s often a lightweight mechanism which means that it can be moved around with ease.
