Today, the use of compressed air is prevalent in many industries due to its safety, reliability, and energy efficiency. Compressors can withstand the harshest applications and environments without compromising performance—however, not all compressors are equal in regards to the benefits they provide.

There are diverse compressors to choose from, and rotary vane air compressors are among the most popular varieties currently being utilized. Rotary vane compressors are a unique blend of technological innovation and high versatility; these products have been specially designed to increase your system’s productivity, while keeping overall costs down.


Mattei has been an industry pioneer for over 50 years, providing customers across several industries with the most advanced compressed air solutions available. We would like to offer insight on these compressors with our latest eBook titled The Industry-Wide Benefits of Rotary Vane Compressors.

Rotary Vane vs. Rotary Screw Compressors

One of the topics discussed in this eBook is the advantages of rotary vane compressors as compared to rotary screw compressors. The design of the rotary vane is simplistic, yet inventive; this compressor features an off-set rotor that spins at 1,800 rpm or less, which offers high wear-resistance and extremely efficient operation. Rotary vane compressors can provide more than 100,000 hours of quiet, consistent service—that’s more than twice the service life of rotary screw compressors. 

Applications of Rotary Vane Compressors

In addition to being more efficient and durable than rotary screw varieties, rotary vane compressors are better suited for a wide range of industrial applications. These products can provide compressed air for applications including:

  • Farm equipment operation (tractors, material conveyors, dairy machines)
  • Powering pneumatic tools (for welding, cutting, spray painting)
  • Dry cleaning of clothing
  • Supplying medical gases and sterilization of clinical tools
  • Drying of chemical products
  • Material handling
  • Quick tire inflation

Our rotary vane compressors are ideal for applications across several industries: automotive, agriculture, power generation, food and beverage, medical and dental, woodworking, manufacturing, and more.
