Our high pressure air compressors have been at the forefront of compressed air technology for over a century, offering air compression for a range of industries and applications. Throughout our history we have offered solutions at every level of industry, including supplying air ends to OEMs, semi-complete packages to integrators, and complete turnkey packages to end users.
This unique position means we understand the market requirements at every level, and the challenges faced by package designers. That’s why all of our high pressure air compressors can be delivered with extra or modified equipment to ensure they fit into your system as efficiently as possible. Our modules offer you the flexibility to develop a package unique to your brand, that delivers all the reliability of a premium high pressure compressor.
We have been supplying high pressure air compressors to critical industrial applications for 120 years. Originally operating from the Ranelagh Road factory in Ipswich, Reavell are proud to have played an integral role in the modernisation of the City of London - with backup generator starting compressors providing the backbone of the London Stock Exchange and the Bank of England, and train braking air compressors delivering extreme reliability on the revolutionary London Underground.
Today Reavell is a truly global company. Our high pressure compressors are specified anywhere where reliability really matters. Air compressors for emergency flood control pumping systems protect homes and businesses in the USA; hydrogen compressors for turbine cooling and air boosters support large scale metal manufacture in China; and turbine control and air blast switch gear compressors support renewable energy applications in every corner of the globe.
It’s testament to the reliability and longevity of our high pressure air compressor systems that throughout this time we have built and maintained relationships with some of the world’s leading companies and organisations.
Reavell’s dedicated engineering team ensure that our high pressure air compressor designs have the ideal balance of a compact footprint, whilst ensuring that critical components are easily accessible. This guarantees that downtime during servicing and maintenance is kept to a minimum, as illustrated in the graph on the right.
1,500 Hour Service Intervals
Reavell high pressure compressors come with market leading service intervals of up to 1,500 hours. We provide preventative maintenance kits that are specifically designed to minimise costs. The kits include everything from minor air end servicing down to running gear overhauls. Not only will your machine run longer between services, but it will also be running long after competitor machines have had to be replaced.
Greater air output from a 25% smaller footprint than the closest high pressure compressor competitor
Space Saving, Cost Saving
With a wide choice of water and air cooled high pressure compressors, Reavell offers a high quality solution for every compressor up to 400 bar.
Whatever the technology, we aim to deliver the highest possible flow rate from the most compact equipment possible. Giving you more space for equipment or maintenance, and lower transportation and installation costs. For example, the Reavell 5209 provides 19% more air, but with a 25% smaller footprint and 29% less weight than competitor products – saving valuable space and improving accessibility.
In fact, with Reavell high pressure air compressors, easy maintenance is built in. Across our range, critical operations such as valve servicing can be carried out with a single tool, and by removing just a single component. By eliminating unnecessary complexity, the cost of servicing is significantly reduced, equipment is up and running more quickly, and expensive downtime is minimised.
Bespoke Specialised Solutions
At Reavell we realise your application is unique, with its own challenges and requirements. We pride ourselves on understanding the complex high pressure compressor solutions our customers require, and with a compressor range from 4 to 250 kW and 20 to 414 barg delivery pressure, we custom build bespoke solutions, tailored to your specifications.
Through our high pressure compressor product offering we can satisfy many air and gas requirements. From the ever reliable and flexible 5437, to the highly configurable 5470, our comprehensive compressor offering combines air and water cooled compressor technology with market leading ancillaries to give you a total compressor solution.
Our high pressure compressors are designed to deliver large savings over their lifetime. The cost to refurbish an old Reavell high pressure compressor is significantly less than to purchase a brand new machine.
At Reavell, our refurbishment capabilities take advantage of our wealth of engineering experience, combined with genuine high pressure spare parts to ensure your high pressure compressor continues to operate at peak efficiency for up to 30 years.

The 5437 high pressure compressor, a staple in the Reavell range.
Flexible, Reliable, Maintainable
The Reavell 5437 high pressure compressor offers performance flexibility, reliability and ease of maintenance. Shown here configured as a belt drive – exactly matching flow rate to customer request, and with an air blast radiator – offering water cooled performance and reliability without the need for an external cooling water system. This configured package offers durability where it matters most.
Reliable, Industrial, High Pressure
The 5409 is the largest air cooled Reavell high pressure compressor. Offering market leading performance density, with the ability to run with an elevated inlet pressure of up to 1 barg or configured as a booster. With options to run on a wide range of gases including air, nitrogen, biogas, and helium, the 5409 offers the reliability you would expect from Reavell with the ease of installation of an air cooled machine.
Bespoke, Water Cooled, Compact
The Reavell 5460 is a truly customisable and reliable water cooled high pressure compressor system. Rated at 250 kW, with 6 cylinder lines and a choice of 18 cylinders for each, it offers final delivery pressures from 2 to 414 barg, flow rates from 195 to 1720 m3/hr and can run as a zero loss booster up to 18 barg inlet pressure. Designed for use with most industrial gases, and with ultra-compact cooler separators installed on a common baseplate, this compressor system offers a remarkably small footprint with Reavell’s customary reliability and maintainability.
Bespoke, Reliable, Efficient
The 5470 high pressure compressor has been a staple of the Reavell range for over 20 years. Having been through several enhancements during this time it is one of the most reliable and proven configurable compressor air ends on the market. Designed for use with most gases, the baseplate mounted direct drive system not only offers maximum reliability but also optimum system efficiency.
