Mattei Lubricated Rotary Vane Air Compressors

The Titus Company offers a wide range of compressor products to meet any industry’s compressed air system needs. We are proud to offer Mattei rotary vane air compressors — some of the best-known and most efficient rotary vane air compressors on the market. The Titus Company carries Mattei air compressors from the ERC Series, AC Series, Optima Series and Maxima Series.

5.1 thru 460 SCFM: The ERC series is a reliable compressor with a classic open frame. You have multiple mounting options, either standard base mounting, mounted on an air receiver tank or the Stacked System™ if you are looking to save space and increase energy efficiency. The Stacked System features twin air compressors stacked vertically. You can switch between compressors or use them simultaneously for double the compressed air, even if you do not have the floor space for two air compressors side-by-side.

The ERC Series Rotary Vane Air Compressor can leave you with lower operating costs since it holds surprisingly little oil for a lubricated air compressor. In fact, you should need less than half of what you would need from a rotary screw air compressor. You can clean the oil filter through 60 HP. The efficient mechanical air/oil separation chamber will deliver up to 10,000 hours of air treatment on a minimum of lubricant, with only 1-3 ppm oil carryover.

The ERC Series Mattei Air Compressor is available in 200, 230, 460, 575v/3Ph/60Hz (5 HP, 7.5 HP also in 230v/1Ph/60Hz)

ERC Series Standard Features

  • Efficient motor: The Mattei ERC Series features a standard open-drip proof electric motor (TEFC optional).
  • Motor starter: Either full voltage (up to 40 HP) or WYE-Delta starter (50 HP to 100 HP).
  • Air treatment: Includes an air-cooled aftercooler with 18°F approach temperature as well as a moisture separator with an automatic drain valve.
  • Low maintenance: The ERC Series is relatively low maintenance for air compressor equipment, requiring only occasional oil and filter changes and cleaning the radiator from time to time. By using significantly less oil than with a rotary screw lubricated compressor, you will save time and money.
  • Stands up to continuous use: Because of their simple design, you can use this compressor equipment in industrial applications continuously, 24 hours a day, at constant pressure. You may get as many as 100,000 working hours or more, a statement we back up with a 10-year warranty.
  • Whisper-quiet: If you’re used to the sound of a rotary screw compressor, these open-frame machines will be a welcome change, generating as little as 64 dB even without a sound-insulating enclosure.
  • Bearingless airends: This compressor’s rotor-stator unit is just a rotor supported by two white metal Babbit bushings. With fewer parts to wear out, it can last twice as long as rotary screw compressor equipment.
  • Adaptive capacity controls: This compressor offers multiple control configurations to your compressed air delivery needs. This will help prevent short-cycling, save energy and avoid oil misting problems.
  • Modulation operating mode at constant pressure: You will not need air receivers with this compressor. The modulating proportional intake valve automatically adapts to the variable air demands of your system.
  • Automatic On/Off load: Another feature that allows the compressor to match your variable air demands. The system maintains line pressure within a set range and stops and starts according to air demand.
  • Combined On/Off load and modulation regulation: Set your compressor to modulate within a given range. If the air demand falls below that range, the compressor automatically off-loads and stops to maximize efficiency.

34 to 70 SCFM & 157.3 to 328.5 SCM: The AC Series, or the Direct-Drive BLADE series, delivers efficiency, reliability and smooth, quiet operation in a low-maintenance rotary vane air compressor. Cabinet enclosures keep this compressor as quiet as 67 dB(A), while the Wye-Delta motor starters and high-efficiency TEFC motors keep energy costs down.

The Direct-Drive BLADE Series gives you everything you love about Mattei direct-drive bearingless air compressors, like protection from phase reversal, quiet operation and Continuous, Automatic or Modulation control. Plus, you get the best features of BLADE belt-drive compressors, like separator filters and spin-on oil, radial cooling fan and the Maestro XB controller, all at a budget-friendly price.

The AC Series is available in 208, 230, 460 and 575v/3Ph/60Hz.

AC Series Standard Features

  • Cost-effectiveness: Thanks to slow operating speeds and a simple design with few components, you can expect this compressor to give you many operating hours with little maintenance and low energy requirements.
  • User-friendly with Adaptive Capacity Controls: The Maestro XB microprocessor-based controller features an Expansion Module/clock card, ideal for scheduling start/stop times and networking. Continuous, Automatic or Modulation control makes meeting variable air demands easy. Continuous mode for when you need to run the motor constantly, automatic mode when you want the motor to respond to intermittent air demands and modulation mode to keep pressure stable in a +/- 4 to 5 PSI range.
  • Heavy-duty direct-drive transmission: The Direct-Drave BLADE compressor works with a highly efficient TEFC C-faced motor direct-coupled to the compressor shaft with a flexible coupling. No need to uncouple the drive train to replace elements. The transmission turns the compressor at 4 pole 1,800 rpm at 60 Hz motor speeds.
  • Quiet operation: Rotary vane air compressors are ideal when you need quiet operation. The powder-coated stainless steel cabinet of the BLADE Series means levels as low as 67 dB(A).
  • Long-life airends: The white metal Babbitt bushings instead of traditional bearings mean more reliable continuous service and longer life. The BLADE compressor features Meehanite® cast iron blades for 100,000 hours of life.
  • Superior efficiency motor: TEFC motors come standard.
  • Motor starter: Wye-Delta motor starters that save energy are standard.
  • Lubricant: Quiet, efficient operation with our long-life, completely synthetic Rotoroil 8000 F2 lubricant.
  • Air treatment: The BLADE Series treats air with an air-cooled aftercooler with 18°F approach temperature and a moisture separator. Features automatic zero air-loss condensate drain, shipped ready for field installation.
  • Low maintenance: It’s easy to change out air and oil filters when necessary. These compressors have few parts with long lives, so maintenance and repair requirements are usually minimal.

When you’re looking for an efficient, quiet air compressor, rotary vane compressors have a huge edge over the rotary screw variety. The Mattei Optima Series delivers unrivaled performance and energy savings with super-quiet cabinet enclosures, soft-starting AC inverter drives, TEFC motors, air-cooled aftercoolers and more. Our rotary vane airends are far less sensitive than rotary screw airends. They run slowly, providing you with more energy efficiency and lower costs.

An Optima Rotary Vane air compressor will start to operate load/off load as soon as it reaches the minimum necessary speed, which can result in dramatic energy savings for you over a rotary screw air compressor.

The Optima Series line of rotary vane air compressors helps you reduce your impact on the environment while saving time and money. You will usually need half the amount of lubricant that a rotary screw air compressor needs or less. This means less oil to buy and dispose of. These air compressors, which usually include a cleanable air filter, have only a 1 to 3 ppm oil carryover.

The Optima Series is available in 460v/3Ph/60Hz.

Optima Series Standard Features

  • Condensate drain & separator kit: A condensate separator and timed electronic drain is standard equipment.
  • Designed to maximize efficiency: The Optima generates the best volumetric performances over the range of air demand and delivers some of the lowest kW/100 CFM performance in the industry.
  • Mattei inverter regulation system: The Mattei exclusive inverter system is designed to maximize energy savings with extremely low energy consumption. Compressor rotational speed reaches maximum efficiency when compressed air demand is between 40% and 100%.
  • Reliability: All our Mattei Rotary Vane Air Compressors come with a 10-year warranty. We are confident in a design that can stand up to continuous industrial use around the clock, often for 100,000 working hours or more.
  • Incredibly quiet: 1,800 rpm operation takes place inside a sound dampening cabinet resulting in sound levels that can be down to 65 dB(A).
  • No bearing airends: Typical bearings wear out fast. Our compressors operate on two Babbitt bushings that last, giving you twice the life as a screw-type compressor.
  • Direct coupling: There are no gears or belts to change or adjust — just a direct elastic coupling between compressor and motor.
  • Superior efficiency motor: Standard on all Optimas is an enclosed, fan-cooled TEFC electric motor.
  • Air quality: You’ll always get approach temperatures of 18°F thanks to the air-cooled aftercooler system.
  • Efficient oil/air separator: A three-stage separating system means oil carryover is below 3 ppm every time. Moisture separator with automatic drain valve optional.
  • Maintenance: Maintenance on a Mattei rotary vane air compressor is simple. Just change the oil, clean the radiator and clean or replace the filters when necessary.
  • Automatic On/Off load feature: Enjoy more efficiency with automatic load/off load control that engages if pressure keeps rising after reaching minimum speed.
  • Maestro XS: The Maestro XS can fully control, monitor and program the compressor, connect to a PC to allow you to control the unit remotely and lets you perform remote service monitoring via Internet.
  • Air treatment products: Compatible with a range of other Mattei products such as refrigerated air dryers, in-line coalescing filters, sterile in-line filters, desiccant air dryers, air receiver tanks, oil/water condensate separators and timer and demand style condensate drains.

243 through 1,206 SCFM: Combine reliable operation, great energy savings and eco-conscious operation with the Mattei Maxima Series of rotary vane air compressors. Use your Maxima as a base load machine connected to an Optima VSD as your trim machine for ultimate energy savings.

While most of our rotary vane air compressors operate at 1,800 rpm speeds, the Maxima’s larger airends run at 1,200 rpm. The result is some of the lowest kW/100 CFM performance in the industry, with output for a rotary vane single-stage compressor comparable to a two-stage rotary screw compressor.

The Maxima airend uses just two Babbitt bushings as opposed to eight roller bearings and four thrust bearings for a two-stage rotary screw, meaning longer life and greater efficiency. The Maxima requires around a third of the oil of a two-stage rotary screw compressor and operates quietly while saving you on energy costs.

Because its oil requirements are so low, you’ll save on oil and oil disposal. The Maxima air/oil separation chamber sees a minimum of lubricant and can deliver up to 10,000 hours of service with oil carryover under 3 ppm.

The Maxima is available in 460v and 575v, 3Phase/60Hz.

Maxima Series Standard Features

  • Condensate drain & separator kit: Each Maxima Series air compressor comes with a kit that includes a condensate separator and a timed electronic drain.
  • High-efficiency air-intake filter kit: If you will be operating your air compressor in dusty environments, this high-efficiency air filter can remove solid particles > 3μ with a filtering efficiency up to 99% (Model Maxima 55 and larger).
  • Reliability: Like all Mattei rotary vane air compressors, you can keep your Maxima Series air compressor in continuous operation 24/7, all year long, for 100,000 working hours or more, backed by our 10-year warranty.
  • Ultra-quiet operation: Much quieter than standard rotary screw air compressors, with all operations included in a quiet cabinet that keeps sound down as low as 65 dB(A).
  • Large, long-lasting, bearingless airends: The massive airends of the Maxima are supported only by two Babbit bushings, not multiple ball and thrust bearings that can easily wear out. This means you can expect twice as much life from your airends as you would from a rotary screw compressor.
  • Air quality: Get some of the best air quality possible in a lubricated compressor, with a three-state oil separating system keeping maximum oil carryover lower than 3 ppm. Approach temperatures never exceed 18°F thanks to the air-cooled aftercooler. Moisture separator with automatic drain valve optional.
  • Premium TEFC motor: Enjoy the same premium efficiency enclosed fan-cooled TEFC electric motor on your Maxima Series as you get on other Mattei rotary vane air compressors.
  • Direct coupling: No extra parts to maintain and no bearings to replace or belts to adjust, thanks to a direct flexible coupling of motor and compressor.
  • Wye Delta motor starter: Top-of-the-line, energy-saving motor starter standard.
  • Fast and easy maintenance: Change the oil, clean the radiator and replace the filters when required.
  • Capacity controls that meet your needs: Set the control scheme you need to save energy, avoid misting problems and stop short-cycling.
  • Modulation operating mode at constant pressure: This compressor features an adaptive modulating proportional intake valve to deliver a constant air pressure stream, ideal if you have continuous high-pressure air demands or minimal storage. No air receivers needed.
  • Automatic On Load/Off Load: Keeps line pressure within a specific pressure range and will start or stop based on air demand to maximize efficiency.
  • Combined On/Off load and modulation regulation: Modulates the compressor within a set pressure range, such as +/- 4 to 5 PSI, off-loading and stopping if demand falls outside the range.
  • Electronic controllers: Like the other Mattei rotary vane air compressors, you get the state-of-the-art Maestro XS, which easily controls all aspects of the unit and can be enabled for remote operation and service monitoring via PC and the Internet.
