  • Advantages
    • Direct Coupling: The electric motor is directly coupled to the compression unit by means of a flexible joint. This provides advantages in overall efficiency of the compressed air unit, leading to a lower kW per m3/min usage and easier maintenance.
    • Low Rotational Speed: The pumping unit, thanks to vane technology, rotates at a speed well below the speed of the competitors.
    • Compactness: The limited dimensions of the rotary vane compression unit allow for an extremely compact machine that's easy to position in the tight areas.
    • Easy Maintenance and Long Life: The characteristic design makes preventive maintenance operations simple and fast. The cast iron vanes and the bearings have a practically unlimited life, whilst the special vane rotating technology, without axial thrust, means cutlass bearings are unnecessary. In addition, Blade 15÷22 has been designed in a way that makes it possible to replace the elastic element without having to dismantle the rotor-stator unit.
    • A User-friendly Controller: MaestroXB is a programmable controller which regulates the operation of the compressor to suit the specific requirements of the air distribution system. It has different programming levels and special options for controlling and analysing the operation and faults.
    • Air Quality: The integrated, several stage oil separation system allows for an exceptionally low consumption of lubricant, ensures a limited oil carryover of below 3 mg/m3.
    • Reliability and Efficiency: Suitable for operating even in the most challenging applicative circumstances, the BLADE compressors stand out for their reliability. The operating efficiency is further increased by the oil and compressed air cooling system, based on two wholly aluminium radiators and the presence of the Inverter, which adjusts the motor’s rotational speed, adapting the air delivered by the compressor to the real demand and that can save up to 35% of the annual operating costs.
    • Low Noise: Mattei's vane technology ensures silent operation, which makes BLADE compressors suitable for all workplaces.

FUNCTIONING

Blade 15÷22 i operates within a range of pre-set maximum and minimum pressures. When reaching the maximum pressure, at the minimum rotational speed the shutdown of the intake valve occurs, the compressor is set “off load” and decompressed to 1.5 bar, to reduce the energy absorption further. When the line pressure lowers to the minimum pre-set value it is reset to the “on load” condition and starts delivering air instantly, adapting the rotational speed to the air demand.
