The advantages for those choosing Mattei’s compressors are various:
1. ENERGY SAVING MACHINES
Mattei's rotary vane air compressors are the result of continual innovation and advanced design capabilities.
The low rotational speed of the compressor unit, the high volumetric efficiency and the complete absence of roller or thrust bearings, result in an energy saving of over 15% compared to other rotary compressors.
2. EFFICIENCY 1:1
All Mattei's compressors have a 1:1 ratio between the electric motor speed and that of the airend. This means greater energy efficiency and higher performances.
Compared to other technologies, rotary vane compressors guarantee a superior internal air seal, together with a consistent and long lasting performance.
3. SAFETY / RELIABILITY
The integrated design, direct coupling, low rotational speed and the limited number of moving parts ensure Mattei's rotary vane air compressors remain safer, more durable and therefore more reliable over time.
Mattei's rotary vane air compressors are silent and can be located almost anywhere. They are quickly installed and take up a limited amount of space. Their accessible design makes maintenance operations simple and straightforward.
5. QUALITY OF THE AIR
All Mattei's compressors are fitted with a generously sized filtering system, which guarantees quality compressed air suitable for any use. Mattei’s very efficient, multi-stage oil separation system produces an exceptionally low lubricant carry-over.
6. LOW OPERATING COSTS: LOW MAINTENANCE
Mattei's rotary vane compressors are designed to reach 100,000 hours life without the need to replace any blades or other metal parts. The long operating life of a Mattei compressor is assured by high quality machining which is the essence of rotary vane air compressors.
Maximum efficiency of the air compression process, excellent reliability and low running costs; are just some of the key benefits that rotary vane technology can offer.
The vane compressor is a volumetric rotary compressor that consists of a stator cylinder in which a rotor is mounted off-centre but parallel to its sides. The rotor has slots in which the vanes are free to slide: centrifugal force keeps them in contact with the sides of the stator during rotation.
The rotary vane compressor, thanks to its simple construction, offers remarkable advantages, first among them being greater volume yield because the vanes are in constant contact with the inner wall of the stator and form a perfectly airtight seal with no leaks along the wall thanks to a continuous film of oil.
In this type of compressor no axial thrust is generated so the side surfaces of the rotor are not subject to wear and thus no rotating bearings or thrust bearings are needed. The vanes, too, because of the special way they are made have practically unlimited life. Behind the success of Mattei compressors there is thus extreme reliability, long life, quiet operation and simplicity of maintenance. Design is important too: compactness and clean lines, together with harmonious shapes, give Mattei compressors an image of robustness and ease of use.
Why has Mattei decided to invest in vane technology?
The world of compressed air is made up of many assembly companies and a few producers. Mattei is one of the few ones. We decided to invest in vane technology because we believe it is the most efficient and reliable solution for our customers’ requirements. Designing a rotary vane air compressor is not easy, it takes expertise and competence. Mattei has been operating in the air compressed market for over 90 years, enhancing its own know-how year after year, thanks to experience and professional skills.
Why should I buy a Mattei compressor?
Because it’s the most efficient and the only one whose efficiency increases over time.
Because it is an industrial product, but manufactured with care, attention to details and pride.
Because it can work continuously and for a long time, always providing quality air.
Because its managing and maintenance costs are among the best ones in the market.
Because it can be personalised and used in applications where other technologies wouldn't be suitable.
Because it is guaranteed and original.
Is it true that Mattei vanes have an endless life?
True. Under normal conditions of use Mattei vanes should never be replaced.
How long is the lifespan of Mattei compressors?
Up to 100,000 running hours, without the need to replace any metal parts. This is possible thanks to the rotary vane air compressor design, its low rotational speed and limited number of moving parts.
Is it easy to install?
Under normal conditions of use Mattei’s vanes should never be replaced and are guaranteed for 10 years.
Are maintenance operations easy?
Large hinged doors and easily removable panels allow complete and easy accessibility for all maintenance and intervention operations. The compressor base has suitable clearances / lifting points that permit easy lifting and movement.
How long do the bearings last?
Mattei rotary vane compressors have NO bearings.
Why does Mattei also produce compressors with no canopy?
Differently from other rotary and alternative technologies, Mattei vane compressors are very silent and extremely safe also in their version with no sound insulation.
How reliable are Mattei’s compressors?
When reliability and safety are needed Mattei is responsible choice.
Mattei compressors are applied where other kind of compressors can be hardly used.
Is the lubricant important?
The lubricant is extremely important in the air cooling process and it ensures a perfect sealing of the parts. Mattei’s compressors offer the best air achievable with a lubricated compressor.
