Agriculture is a vital part of human life, and has been since our ancestors began cultivating the land over 10,000 years ago. Modern agriculture is significantly more advanced; today’s famers rely on various mechanical components to aid in producing and harvesting livestock and various crops.
In the agricultural industry, many of the machines and day-to-day operations utilize air compressors for a continuous or intermittent supply of clean, pressurized air. This industry has a strong need for on demand compressed air, and compressors that can stand the test of time—that’s where Mattei’s line of rotary vane compressors can help.
Our rotary vane compressors serve agriculturalists in a variety of functions. Most notably, the compressors can supply the large amounts of air needed to operate farming equipment such as automated crop sprayers, dairy machines, product conveyors, and pneumatic material handling machines. Also, farming vehicles such as service trucks and tractors utilize compressed air to inflate tires quickly and easily.
Compressed air is also utilized in other aspects of agriculture; it’s often used to transport excess foods, grains, and other products to silos and also provides ventilation for industrial greenhouses. Since rotary vane compressors only expel pure, high-quality compressed air, there’s no need to be concerned about toxic fumes or other contaminants coming into contact with product. Irrigation lines can be winterized using compressed air; water is blown out of pipes with the high-pressure air. When winter seasons approach, winterizing with compressed air is useful for preventing damage to pipes and neighboring components—which can be costly to repair.
Mattei’s line of rotary vane compressors offers high efficiency solutions for nearly limitless applications in the agricultural industry. The design of the rotary vane compressor is inherently energy efficient, providing up to 35% more in energy savings as opposed to traditional rotary screw compressors. The decreased energy consumption of the rotary vane is directly correlated to the smooth operation of its design; this innovative design equates to an extensive service life.
Agriculture is a competitive industry, so tip the scale in your favor by choosing the most reliable, high-quality air compressors available. Mattei’s rotary vane compressors combine the latest technology with over five decades of experience and proven quality to deliver the most efficient solutions to agriculture users.
