The BLADE compressor range, with operating pressures from 115 to 175 psi, is the ideal solution for the needs of small and medium sized companies as well as artisan businesses.

In the world of small rotary compressors, speed kills both energy efficiency and compressor life. No rotary screw compressor even comes close to the low 1,050 to 2,332 rpm range and energy efficiency of the BLADE Series.

The rotary vane technology ensures high quality compressed air, an extremely compact airend and low noise levels — all combined with undisputed product reliability for any application.

Standard Features

  • Low Operating Costs — Simple design and long-life components couple with the slow operating speeds only vane technology can deliver to produce lots of air, while consuming up to 20% less energy than rotary screw type compressors.
  • Simple Reliable Controls — Featuring our MAESTRO XB microprocessor based controller with Continuous and Automatic operating modes with standard load/unload operation.
  • Heavy-duty Belt-driven Transmission Blade — uses dual "V" belts engineered to last 3 years to drive the compressor at some of the slowest speeds in the industry. Our exclusive belt tensioning system is simple and ensures perfect alignment for long belt life. This design helps us to deliver the energy saving performance of our industrial class machines to smaller applications and at very affordable prices.
  • Inherently Quiet — BLADE Series compressors are housed in a powder coat painted stainless steel cabinet. The slow rotating speeds of our vane technology deliver sound levels as low as 61 dB(A).
  • Reliable Rotary Vane Airends — BLADE features our proprietary single-rotor stator unit (RSU) that incorporates our legendary white metal Babbitt bush on the back and now an oversized radial ball bearing on the front to address the side load created by the belts. BLADE compressors are engineered for 24 hours a day service with our exclusive Meehanite® iron blades designed to last 100,000 hours.
  • Capacity Controls Adapt to Your Demands — The layout and design of every air system is different. Thus, Mattei provides you with two control schemes Automatic or Continuous modes as standard to better adapt to the demands and dynamics of your system.

    In both cases, intake air is controlled via the output of "high" and "low" set points on a preset pressure switch. A solenoid valve responds to fully open (Load) the intake valve at the low point, and then fully close (Unload) the intake air valve at the high point. This maintains line pressure within the design pressure range.
  • Automatic Mode — Automatic mode is ideal for systems with fluctuating air demands and/or plenty of air storage. It allows the compressor to automatically start and stop the motor to match intermittent air demands.
  • Continuous Mode — Continuous mode is ideal for applications with heavy air demands where the compressor is under heavy loads. In this case, it is best to run the motor constantly until you decide to turn it off.
  • Premium Efficiency Motor — BLADE models are equipped with premium efficient totally enclosed fan cooled TEFC electric motors as standard.
  • Motor Starter — Full voltage motor is standard.
  • Lubricant — Benefit from our long-life all synthetic Rotoroil 8000 F2 lubricant.
  • Air Treatment — Built-in Air cooled aftercooler with 18°F approach temperature.
  • Maintenance — All components are easily accessible for fast easy maintenance. Annual maintenance operations only include changing the filters and oil at predetermined intervals. Oil and Separator filters are spin-on style. Long life belts are engineered for 3 years. Inexpensive parts and oil combine with long operating intervals to deliver significant savings over the life of the machine.

Optional Features

  • Automatic Condensate Drain and Separator Kit — The kit is composed of a condensate separator and a timed electronic drain.
  • Maestro XB Expansion Module — It allows the remote signaling of on/off controls by means of volt free contacts and hourly programming. If more compressors are connected (max. 4), it allows the sequence management.
  • Air Treatment Products — Mattei offers comprehensive air treatment accessories to complete your air system including: in-line coalescing filters, refrigerated air dryers, desiccant air dryers, sterile in-line filters, air receiver tanks, timer and demand style condensate drains, and oil/water condensate separators.
