Rotary Vane Compressors, 1/4 to 1 hp
Aeration » Compressors »
Sweetwater® motor-mounted, oilless rotary vane compressors are compact, easy-to-service and excellent for moderate-pressure, continuous-duty applications. They more than double the air output of piston compressors with better longevity. Sacrificial oilless carbon vanes automatically adjust as they wear to maintain efficiency.
Thermal overload protection, air filter, inlet check valve and 8' power cord is included. Ten-psi models work to a depth of 18 feet and 15-psi models work to 27 feet, depending on tubing diameter and distance.
The only wearing parts are carbon vanes, which can be replaced in about 15 minutes using common tools (in continuous operation, vanes last 9 to 18 months, depending on operating pressure).
All Sweetwater® rotary vane compressors are performance tested and covered by a one-year warranty (not including air filters, vanes, water damage or lightning damage). Although all models can be rewired in the field, it's best if you specify required voltage when ordering, so we can supply the correct power cord (all single-phase models will be wired 115V if not specified). Check valves are recommended where long underwater runs of air tubing can fill with water when the compressor is off.
Three-phase models ship with vanes removed and no power cords.
