Yes, this really is the world's largest, single-stage, air-cooled rotary vane air compressor. Pneumofore's legendary A Series models currently installed in industrial plants worldwide compress a monstruous billion+ m3 each year. And not only more reliably, but also more efficiently than any other air compressor. Extraordinary expertise culminates in the range of A Compressors, from 67 to 2.037 m3/h [40 to 1200 cfm], based on rotary vane technology, which established Pneumofore's legendary reputation for reliability and durability through decades of Research & Development. Pneumofore compressors are the first choice for users seeking the lowest Life Cycle Cost and the highest possible return of their investment.



a series 1
a series 2
a series 3
Compression volumes from 67 m3/h to 2073 m3/h
(Single stage) in the range of 2.5 to 8 bar.

Reduced electric energy consumption
when compared to screw compresssors with same nominal capacity. Up to 30% savings on replacements.

"Plug and play" compressors, easy to install and integrate.
Air cooling through an aluminium radiator and a temperature controlled fan. Water-free cooling prevents problems related to limestone, ambient temperature and unstable vacuum degree.

Special aluminum alloy vanes provide active sealing, avoiding efficiency loss and minimizing cost of operation and maintenance.

"Closed-loop" lubrication circuit ensures negligible coolant consumption.

Air Compressors for Steel Plants

Ten years continuous operation of UR12 at Hot Roll

The environment in a steel plant is uneasy, equipment must be sturdy and durable. There is no space and no time for delicate maintenance operations, but the clear request of trouble-free, reliable and high performance machinery. MORE...

3,5 bar Air for Hollow Glass Moulding

Low pressure air compressors for IS machines in Korea

Traditionally Pneumofore supplies glassworks with centralized vacuum systems. Depending on the size of the furnace, also the air compressors of the A Series can be installed to supply the compressed air required during the moulding process of hollow glass containers. MORE...

Compressors in Mines

Rotary vane air compressors in Polish underground mines

A special line of compressors was designed for the use in explosive areas. The rotary vane air ends allow lower temperatures, thus minor risk of fire caused by heat. Besides ATEX certification, the units were moved easily in elevators and tunnels of coal and salt mines to their installation location 700 m below ground level. MORE...

HIGH SAVINGS, FAST ROI

Requiring no water, minimal energy and virtually no repairs, Pneumofore rotary vane air compressors create high operational savings and a rapid payback. Purchase or leasing options include engineering support and a 5-years performance guarantee.
