Compressed air is widely used as an energy carrier because it offers considerable benefits:
- easy use;
- safe use;
- it can be stored in receivers and transported;
- it is pure (which makes it particularly appreciated in specific industries such as food, pharmaceuticals and healthcare).
Moreover, the energy efficiency of the compressor is key to reducing its Life Cycle Cost: electricity accounts for about 80% of the total cost of a compressor life cycle.
It is precisely on efficiency, cost control and environmental protection that Mattei vane compressor technology makes the difference, offering machines that position themselves on the market with the lowest Life Cycle Cost.
The air end low rotation speed, the high volumetric efficiency and the use of oil-lubricated white metal bushings that do not wear over time, result in energy savings of over 15% compared to other rotary compressors.
Mattei compressors also feature extremely low maintenance requirements, which only involve changing the oil at scheduled intervals, cleaning or replacing the air filter and cleaning the radiator, ensuring operation for over 100,000 hours with no component replacement and no significant overhaul required.
In configuring the system it is advisable to install intelligent control and management devices capable of acting on operation promptly to avoid wasting electricity and optimising the performance of the system.
Mattei consultancy service is available to help its customers in choosing the best combination between compressors and the type of use required.
