Energy Savings

Equipped with high-efficiency IE3 electric motors.
The low rotation speed of the air end, the 1:1 direct coupling between the electric motor, and the compressor itself ensure energy savings of more than 15% compared to other rotary compressors.

Optimized Cooling System

Oversized coolers are rated for 115°F ambient conditions. The energy-saving electric fan connected to the inverter regulates the cooling air flow depending on the machine oil temperature. The cooling air flow adapts to the required load.


The inverter system is designed to change the motor rotation speed, thus adapting the air delivered to the system requirements and reducing power consumption up to 35%.


Maintenance is limited to changing the oil at scheduled intervals, cleaning or changing the air filter and cleaning the radiator. The absence of roller bearings contributes significantly to reducing maintenance costs.

Standard maintenance costs are, however, low due to the near-unlimited lifespan the vanes, rotor and when proper maintenance is performed. Over 100,000 hours of operation are guaranteed without the need to replace the compression unit.

Compact Design & Silent Operation

The compact design and small footprint allow installation even in confined spaces. Large hinged doors and easily removable panels allow complete accessibility for all maintenance and service operations. The base is equipped with openings that permit easy lifting and handling.
Mattei air compressors are coated with epoxy powders, resistant to both corrosion and scratches. The interiors are also coated with abundant soundproofing material.

Quality Air

The 99% efficient filtration system ensures quality compressed air for every application, while the special multi-stage oil separation guarantees a residual oil content in the air of less than 3 ppm w/w.

Electronic Control

Blade 15i-18i-22i series compressors are equipped with Maestro XB electronic controllers, with graphic display allowing constant monitoring of oil temperature, line pressure, operation, and load hours.
