Sweetwater Rotary Vane Compressors, 1/4 to 2 HP
$651.26 – $1,386.63
The Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems Sweetwater® motor-mounted, oilless vane compressors are compact, easy-to-service and excellent for moderate pressure, continuous-duty applications. They more than double the air output of reciprocating compressors with better longevity. Sacrificial oilless carbon vanes automatically adjust as they wear to maintain efficiency.
Thermal overload protection, air filter, inlet check valve and 8′ power cord are included on single-phase units. Ten-psi models work to a water depth of 18 feet and 15-psi models work to 27 feet, depending on tubing diameter and distance.The only wearing parts are carbon vanes, which can be replaced in about 15 minutes using common tools. In continuous operation, vanes last 9–18 months, depending on pressure.
All Sweetwater® compressors are performance tested before shipping and covered by a one-year warranty (not including air filters, vanes, water or lightning damage). Although all models can be rewired in the field, it’s best if you specify your voltage when ordering, so we can supply the correct power cord (all single-phase models will be wired 115V if not specified). Check valves are recommended where air tubing can fill with water when the compressor is off.
Three-phase models ship with vanes removed. Three-phase compressors do not have a power cord and must be wired by an electrician. Pentair AES highly recommends using protective devices with all 3-phase equipment. Failure to install protective devices will void most warranties.
