MATTEI® Rotary Vane Xtreme Inverter Series (RVXi) delivers a quantum leap in energy efficiency to the global market for variable speed driven air compressors. Led by freshly patented XTREME Injection Technology, XTREME Thermal Management Technology and XTREME Communications Technology, RVXi leverages this technological trifecta of advancements to firmly establish this product as the most energy efficient 75, 100, 125 HP (55, 75, 90 kW) air compressor the world has ever seen. Period.
Featuring the legendary durability of Mattei’s proprietary Rotary Vane Technology these are world-class industrial compressors designed to stand the test of time while drastically reducing your operating costs to deliver the savings directly to your bottom line.
These slow speed machines feature direct-drive construction to eliminate the wear and excessive maintenance seen in compressors that deploy belt and pulley drive transmissions. You benefit with less maintenance and a more efficient transfer of energy. It starts with a simple jaw-coupling that direct-connects an IE 3 premium-efficiency TEFC motor (IE 4 optional) to the most robust and long-lasting air compressor designs found anywhere on the planet.
JUST THE FACTS
You may have heard the adage, “you get what you pay for.” And, so it is with our proprietary vane technology. We invite you to discover how you, your company and your company’s bottom line, could profit for many years to come in choosing Mattei’s proprietary DIRECT-DRIVE Rotary Vane Technology.
Available in 460v/3Ph/60Hz
RVXi SERIES STANDARD FEATURES:
LOW OPERATING COSTS
Simple design and long-life components couple with our legendary slow operating speeds to benefit you with the longevity that only rotary vane technology can deliver while producing lots of air with minimal energy costs.
Features IoT, Industry 4.0 Maestro XC 10” computerized touchscreen controller that manages and directs the internal processes. In addition, it monitors, stores and trends a wealth of performance and operating data which can then be communicated globally via the Mattei Cloud.
HEAVY-DUTY DIRECT-DRIVE TRANSMISSION
Direct-Drive RVXi features direct-drive transmission for low maintenance and high energy efficiency plus, an inverter automatically varies the compressor speed of a 4 pole motor across a range of speeds to match output to demand and maximize energy efficiency.
RVXi Series compressors are housed in a powder coat painted steel cabinet. The slow rotating speeds of our vane technology deliver sound levels as low as 68 dB(A).
RELIABLE ROTARY VANE AIRENDS
Mattei Rotor Stator Units (RSU) consist of a single rotor supported by two (2) white metal bushes that routinely deliver >100,000 hours of life and never require an overhaul. Compare that to screw type compressors that use six-or-more radial and thrust bearings and typically operate for a fraction of that time before requiring a costly overhaul.
Inverter delivers smooth soft-starting and automatically adjusts the rotational speed of the electric drive motor to match air output to air demand. Referencing a 4-20 mA signal, RVXi increases or decreases motor speed to keep pressure stable at the desired set-point.
PREMIUM EFFICIENCY MOTOR
RVXi models are equipped with IE 3 premium efficient, TEFC electric motors as standard. IE 4 ultra-premium motors are optional.
CUTTING EDGE COOLING SYSTEM
Oversized radiator is sized for +115°F (+46°C) ambient. Maestro XC provides primary thermal management through a servo-controlled thermostatic valve and secondary thermal management via a permanent magnet cooling fan motor that delivers variable speed operation and precise operating temperature control across a wide range of operating conditions.
Benefit from V-Life XTREME lubricant that is engineered to get maximum performance and energy efficiency from patented Xtreme Injection Technology that delivers unrivalled energy efficiency and 6,000 hours of operation between oil changes.
Oversized coolers are designed for a 115°F (46°C) ambient condition in delivering an 18°F approach temperature. Condensate separator with automatic zero air-loss condensate drain is optional and shipped loose for field installation.
All components are easily accessible for fast and easy maintenance. Features quick-change air filters and spin-on oil filters and basket type air/oil separator filters for quick and easy maintenance. Genuine Mattei parts and oil combine with long operating intervals to deliver significant savings over the life of the machine
DIRECT-DRIVE RVXi SERIES OPTIONAL FEATURES
CONDENSATE DRAIN & SEPARATOR KIT
Optional Moisture separator comes with zero loss condensate drain with dry contacts for efficient condensate removal and peace of mind.
IE4 DRIVE MOTOR
Optional IE4 drive motor combines with AC Inverter to deliver world-class IE5 energy performance globally.
The Heaters Kit option has been engineered to allow you to place the compressor in an ambient as low as +14°F and protect the internal components from freezing.
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.

Air Intake (1), feeds ambient air into Airend, (2) which is powered by Motor (3). Solenoid Valve (4) is managed by Controller (5) to open and close or modulate the inlet valve to deliver ambient air into the airend. Oil Receiver (6) holds the lubricant which is fed to Oil Filter (7) via differential pressure to ensure a clean supply of oil is delivered to the Xtreme Injection Technology (15) before being atomized into the Airend (2) to maximize energy efficiency while compressing the air. The pressurized air/oil mixture exits the Airend (2) and flows into Oil receiver (6) where the compressed air is separated mechanically from the oil to flow through the Air/oil Separator (8). The compressed air exits the Air/oil Separator (8) and flows through Air Cooler (9A) before exiting the compressor at rated pressure and flow.
In operation, Controller (5) monitors Pressure Probe (10) to open and close Solenoid Valve (4) in conjunction with varying Motor (3) speed with Inverter (16) to most efficiently match air production to plant air demand. Thermostatic Valve (11) remains closed until the proper operating temperature is achieved at which point it opens and sends the heated oil to Oil Cooler (9B) for cooling.
The Controller (5) monitors Temperature Probe (12) to manage Electronic Thermostatic Valve (11) in conjunction with variable speed Cooling Fan (13) to ensure the desired operating temperature is maintained. If the air pressure gets to high, Safety Valve (14) opens to protect the system from over pressurization.
