During the compression process, air is drawn through a filter into the "Rotor-Stator unit".
Such "unit" consists of a cylinder (stator) in which a rotor mounted eccentrically and tangential with the stator rotates. The rotor has longitudinal slots in which vanes slide.

Vanes are pushed against the stator internal surface by centrifugal force, generated by rotation. Air is compressed through the contraction in volume of the chamber, consisting of the stator, vanes and rotor, during rotation. Sealing between the moving parts, cooling and lubrication are ensured by oil injection. At the exit from the rotor-stator unit the air-oil mixture passes through a filtering element, separating oil from the air, this oil is then recovered and returns to the intake.

The air-oil mixture leaving the compression unit passes through a special internal sleeve and touches the internal surface of the finned chamber. By passing through mechanical and coalescing separation stages, the mixture of compressed air and oil is purified until the maximum oil carry-over in the air does not exceed 3 ppm (parts per million).

An air flow, produced by the axial fan, flows through the finned chamber and removes heat generated during the compression. Compressed air leaves the compressor through a valve, which has the function of keeping a minimum pressure inside the oil chamber, so as to ensure suitable operation when the compressor is delivering air.
