Principle of sliding vane compressor
The sliding vane compressor adopts the traditional technology to drive directly at a lower speed. The rotor is a continuously running component, which is provided with a number of grooves cut along the length direction, in which sliding plates that can slide on the oil film are inserted.
The rotor rotates in the stator of the cylinder. During the rotation, the centrifugal force throws the sliding plate out of the slot to form individual compression chambers. The rotation reduces the volume of the compression chamber and increases the air pressure. By injecting pressurized oil to control the heat generated by compression, the air compression is completed.
