Rotary Vane Air Compressor



Hydrovane Air Compressors

V/VR rotary vane compressors are engineered to meet the most stringent specifications, offering compact, simple, and robust designs that can be fitted anywhere undercover. These versatile air compressors come in various configurations, including airend only, compressor plus motor, tank-mounted (simplex/duplex), or hypac setups (airend, motor, tank, and dryer). With easy installation, minimal consumable parts, and quiet operation, these compressors are a reliable choice for a wide range of applications.

The reliable choice for various applications

With slow speed reliability for 2-10 HP, these compressors offer enduring performance. Their flexible configuration eliminates the need for gears and belts, providing a quiet working environment. Easy maintenance, large oil capacity, and industry-leading warranty ensure peace of mind. Experience cost savings with their energy-efficient design.

Rotary Vane Air Compressor Technology

Gardner Denver’s rotary vane air compressor technology wears in, not out, with performance improving over time. The parts bed within the rotor stator unit, resulting in reduced power and energy costs. With fewer moving parts and the ability to operate for 100,000+ hours without expensive airend changes, these compressors offer exceptional longevity and reliability.

  • V/VR Series compressors operate at a conservative 1750 rpm, ensuring longevity and efficiency.
  • In comparison, rotary screw air compressors of the same size typically run from 2500 to 9000 rpm.
  • 2-shell type bearings allow for 100,000 to 150,000 hours of real running time.
  • V/VR Series compressors provide true running hours, not just bearing failure life ratings.
  • V/VR Series compressors have no axial forces generated by the pump, eliminating the need for complicated preloaded bearing configurations.
  • V/VR Series compressors never experience loss of performance as they age.
  • All cast iron components and Meehanite iron vanes contribute to improved performance.
  • Up to a 5-year warranty against defects in material or workmanship.
  • V/VR Series compressors feature the most advanced control system in the market.
  • Precise air pressure control with no costly external components.
  • Immediate adjustment to changes in air needs.All control systems are included as standard equipment in V/VR Series compressors.
  • V/VR Series compressors have the lowest oil carryover with only 2 ppm.
  • Multilevel internal separation system enhances performance and extends compressor life.
  • V/VR Series compressors have the smallest footprint in the rotary screw industry.
  • Combines space efficiency with proven technology and 21st-century performance.
