General Manufacturing

Industrial manufacturing relies heavily on compressed air supplied by Hydrovane compressors - and compressed air is just as important. There are a number of applications to be found in most industries, such as pick-and-place operations, pneumatic conveying, or drying and forming, along with robotics and powering a range of other air tools, see below for a list of typical manufacturing applications using Hydrovane.

We place great emphasis on providing professional aftermarket support to make sure our customers get maximum benefit from using our pumps and compressors.

Aluminium Smelting Plants

Compressed air used on lifting gantry cranes.

Air Operated Tools

Air tools are preferred to electric tools as they are light and easy to handle - Metal working, wood working, etc.

Spray Finishing Equipment

Air is used to vaporize paint so it can be applied to components and products.

Air Operated Lifting Equipment

Air hoists can be used for a multitude of lifting operations. They are small and compact.

Shot Blasting

Air is used to propel grit or shot for blasting and cleaning operations.

Cooling & Heating

Air is used in a vortex tube to create high volumes of cool air for industrial cooling processes, Vortex tubes can also be reverse flowed to produce high temperature air used in heating processes.


Air is used for cleaning processes in manufacturing facilities.

Welding Equipment

Air is used for cooling.


Air is used for controlling robotic machines on assembly lines.

Air Bearings for Product Handling

Air bearings or air castors enable heavy products to be easily handled by literally floating heavy loads on a virtually frictionless film of air.

Vacuum Generation

Using compressed air and a venturi systems vacuum is generated very efficiently. Vacuum is used for many processes such as product handling.

Paper Pressing

Compressed air is used via cylinders for a variety of pressing applications.


Compressed air used for operation of printing pumps and equipment. As air is non explosive it is safe and reliable.

Roller Adjustment

Compressed air is used to precisely control the roller thickness which determines the paper thickness, essential for an efficient process.
