Why Buy Hydrovane?

10 reasons why Hydrovane compressors are simply the best value in rotary compressors.



Hydrovane has been designing and manufacturing rotary compressors for about 50 years. Hydrovane has put into a worldwide market over 890,000 units, from the 2 horse power to 100 horsepower range.

Rotary-Screw Compressor


Hydrovane compressors are all direct drive driven with a shock absorbing coupling system. This eliminates the need for speed increasing gears and over tensioning belts.

Direct Drive Driven Compressors


No matter what the compressor size or horsepower Hydrovane compressors run between 1450 to 2200 rpm. While the same size rotary screws compressors run from 2500 to 9000 rpm.

Specific Performance Showing Energy Savings


Hydrovane compressors have 2-shell type bearings that allow 100,000 to 150,000 hours of real running time. This is not a B-10 or L-10 bearing failure life rating, but true running hours in your facility.

2-shell type bearings


Hydrovane compressors have no axial forces generated by the compressor. With no axial forces present the need for complicated at preloaded bearing configurations are eliminated. The cost to rebuild an RSU (rotor stator unit) is greatly reduced to that of a rotary screw style compressor.

Preloaded Bearing


The Hydrovane Advance 10 extended warranty programme is a uique market leading compressor care package designed to deliver comprehensive warranty cover for up to 10 years of 48,000 operating hours on all Hydrovane compressor airends.

10 Year Extredned Warrenty Programme


Hydrovane compressors have one of the most advanced control system on today's market. With this system air pressure can be held to a nominal .2 bar (3-5 psi) range with no costly external components. The system has an instantaneous control adjustment to the changes that are taking place with your air needs.

Instantaneous Control Adjustment Compressors


Hydrovane features all the control systems as standard equipment.

Instantaneous Control Adjustment Compressors


Hydrovane compressors have the lowest oil carry over. With only a <3 ppm. oil carry over. Hydrovane uses a multilevel internal separation system before the vapor is ever introduced into the separators. This increases their performance and their life.
