ROTARY VANE COMPRESSORSDurability & Reliability
Mattei's advanced rotary vane technology is simple: It features a single off-set rotor, supported by two, white metal Babbitt bushings (like the connecting rods in your engine) and spins at 1,800 rpm or less. Blades/vanes slide in and out of the rotor to form compression pockets.
A zero-wear MeehaniteTM treating process prevents wear to the stator wall or the cast iron blades, which ride on a thin film of lubricant. Backed by a 10-year warranty, the rotor stator unit is exceptionally durable and efficient. It is not uncommon to get more than 100,000 hours of service life out of Mattei's airends without a rebuild.
