Testament to the reliability of our military air compressors is the fact that we have maintained relationships with some of our naval partners for more than 100 years.
Our focus on continuous development means the reliability of those first machines is built in to today’s leading-edge models. Our 5437N, for example, has its roots in the original VHP36, and although there have been several upgrades to meet the demands of today’s leading navies, the underpinning reliability remains.
Since the first Reavell high pressure air compressor was installed on a British naval ship in 1905, the brand has been synonymous with providing reliable and maintainable products, while building long-term, trusting partnerships with the world’s leading navies.
