Designed to suit a variety of industries and applications, our Champion rotary vane technologies are the ideal solution for optimum performance, efficiency and flexibility. The design of our rotary vane air compressors embodies our dedication to manufacturing high-quality, reliable solutions. This is evident as each rotary vane unit provides up to 100,000+ operating hours due to their innovative low-speed direct drive design. Not only does this make them simple to operate, but it also guarantees low noise levels, as well as the continuous production of high-quality clean, dry air!
Our range of rotary vane solutions includes our CMPV01-CMPV04 models, which are small and compact, making them ideally suited to the workshop and light industrial applications where close proximity to the point of use is essential. Champion's expert team of compressed air engineers have ensured that our rotary vane technology offers only the highest levels of efficiency and energy savings to help you maximise the productivity of your operations.
Rotary vane air compressors are a type of positive displacement system, meaning that they draw air or gas into a compression chamber before reducing the size of the chamber to increase the pressure. This is what compresses the air or gas. Using this working principle as the foundation for its operation, rotary vane compressors utilise a cyclical rotor with slots containing vanes that are able to slide in and out. The rotor sits within the system slightly off-centre, which means that as it spins, the vanes are moved with centrifugal force until they touch the compression chamber. As air enters the chamber, it becomes trapped by the vanes, meaning that as the rotor continues to spin with centrifugal force, the volume of air trapped in the chamber gradually decreases. It's this decrease in volume that increases the pressure of the now-compressed air.
