Hydrovane Compressors

Rotary vane compressors

Industrial Solutions

With over three quarters of a million sold compressors worldwide, we know we can satisfy your requirements.

The Hydrovane series rotary sliding vane compressors are reliable, versatile, powerful and cost effective.

Constant improvements in technology and ever increasing demands for energy saving features mean things have to change. Our engineers challenged themselves to do something better. Retain the features which make Hydrovane a great product, admired by thousands of owners worldwide, but take it forward.

Rotary vane compressors available include:

  • Hydrovane HV series 1.1-4kw
  • Hydrovane HR04-07
  • Hydrovane HV11-22
  • Hydrovane HV30-45
  • Hydrovane Vertical Enclosed Fixed Speed (FS) and Regulated Speed (RS) Rotary Vane Compressors HV Series 4-45kw
  • Hydrovane Enclosed Fixed Speed (FS) and Regulated Speed (RS) Rotary Vane Compressors HV Series 55-75kw

The Rotary Vane Principle

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.

Airmac Rotary Vane Principle

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.

HV 01 – 04 Series

Small and compact Hydrovane HV 01 – 04 models are ideally suited for light industrial and workshop applications where the compressed air outlet needs to be situated close to the point of use.

Tripod or receiver mounted

50/60Hz

10bar

1.1-4kW

0.1 - 0.6 m3/min

4 - 20 cfm

Simple-to-use electronics

A high quality starter with a robust control circuit, including over-temperature protection.

Quiet as standard

With noise levels as low as 62 dB(A) a Hydrovane can be located at the point of use.

High quality air

Clean, dry and pulse free straight from the outlet means less downstream equipment required.

Slow speed

1450 – 2800 rpm (model dependent) speed operation results in low noise, low stresses and long life.

Direct drive

No gears, no belts. Up to 100,000+ operating hours due to its simple integral design.

HR 04 – 07 Compressors

The Hydrovane HR Series of rotary vane compressors unmistakably Hydrovane but one hundred percent new. It’s not so much evolution, but Regeneration.

The Hydrovane Regeneration HR Series is reassuringly familiar on the outside with significant changes on the inside.

Open Framed Sets – Tripod Mounted

The Hydrovane HV (PEAS) series of open framed set fixed speed compressors are ideal for heavy duty general purpose applications, where reduced footprint and low noise levels are not key specification criteria. This open framed compressor range offers an alternative solution to the enclosed range (ACE).

The range also features spin-off / spin-on maintenance items i.e. separators and oil filters for easy maintenance.
