The Unique Rotary Air Compressor Alternative
When considering the purchase of an air compressor, there are three determining factors: application, operating requirment, and budget. Reciprocating compressors have traditionally been the ideal compressor choice for intermittent duty applications such asservice vehicles, tire shops, and general automotive repair. Rotary compressors are the optimal compressor choice for continuous duty requirements such as auto body, paint, and plant air.
Rotary compressors are typically available in two styles, rotary screw or rotary vane. Rotray screw compressors are often the most commonly applied rotary compressor. Depending on the manufacturer's philosophy, rotary screw compressors vary in footprint, rotor speed, motor speed,and drive method.
Hydrovane has proven to be the compressor of choice in many of the most difficult environments and applications. From the frigid temperatures of the Swiss Alps to the extreme temperature swings and harsh conditions of the transit industry, Hydrovane continues to prove itself time and time again.
