Why Mattei?

Selecting Mattei air compressors always means choosing a product with a true competitive advantage. Our rotary vane technology features a single off-set rotor supported by one Babbit bushing and one oversized radial roller bearing, and blades/vanes that slide in and out of the rotor to form compression pockets. Zero-wear
Meehanite® treating process prevents blade wear. In comparison to rotary screw air compressors, our vane technology is simple, while ensuring the best volumetric efficiency.

Our direct-drive Industrial Series products are backed by a 10 year warranty. The newest product, the BLADE series, is part of our new belt-drive Workshop Series and is backed by a 5 year warranty.

All Mattei vane compressors are designed to provide 100,000 hours of service life without a rebuild. Each carries the proven quality of all of our products and our proprietary vane technology is nothing short of a game-changer.
