Rotary vane compressor stage
Fresh oil injection cooling
Multi-cell design principle, driven directly via an elastic coupling between the drive motor and the compressor stage
Suitable for compressing purified gas
Outstanding operating reliability
Dynamic oil film between vanes and the inner wall of the compressor housing
Low rpm and self-centering rotor
The gas flows through the suction line to the compressor stage. Here it is compressed as a result of the increasingly smaller volumes of the compression chambers. The compressed gas exits from a compression fitting on the compression stage through a check valve and enters the compression-side piping system.
The series RVA compressors are water-cooled. The heat generated during operation is removed by cooling water, which flows through the compressor housing from the bottom to the top.
The compressor stage is driven directly via an elastic coupling with coupling protection between the drive motor and the compressor stage shaft. The RVA 280-610 system size compressors also have a gearbox between the motor and the compressor stage.
