Vert Rotors unveils breakthrough low-vibration nano compressor at IMTS 2016

Sep 12, 2016 -- Compressor manufacturer Vert Rotors today unveiled the world’s smallest low-vibration, clean air compressor at the International Manufacturing Trade Show in Chicago, following recent successful testing to prove readiness for production.

The VERT.04.W ‘nano’ compressor represents a breakthrough in engineering, producing clean, oil-free air compressed to 115 psi compared to current small industry-standard rotors that struggle to produce more than 32 psi.

Developed in response to global consumer demand, Vert’s micro compressors operate with minimal vibration and noise and use water-injection rather than machine oil, eliminating environmental threats or possibility of oil contamination.

A prototype satellite cryocooling system based on Vert Rotors’ ‘nano’ design is already being developed for the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE), part of UK Ministry of Defence, aiming to significantly improve the quality and resolution of infrared imaging.

Olly Dmitriev, CEO at Vert Rotors, said: “The VERT.04.W is the world’s tiniest low-vibration compressor of its kind. This ‘nano’ compressor is suitable for a variety of applications including cryocooling in small satellites, miniature medical devices, and clean compressed air systems where the space is at premium.

“By using a conical design, where the inner rotor revolves inside the outer rotor that moves at a different speed, we are able to produce a powerful low-vibration compressor, which operates well above industry standard for its size.

“We truly believe our innovation will revolutionise the way many applications are now developed, and is ideal technology to bring us closer to enabling safer future manned space travel.”

Based in Edinburgh, UK, Vert Rotors exports internationally to customers including Fortune-500 manufacturing companies in the EU and the USA, and 75 per cent of customers are outside the UK.

Compressed air accounts for 10 per cent of industrial electricity demand and the total global market for industrial compressors is expected to reach over $17.5 billion by 2017.

Mr Dmitriev is a tech entrepreneur and angel investor with 15 years’ experience in software project management with a dual EMBA degree from the Colombia and London business schools. He is a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and author of three patents and multiple papers about Vert’s compressor technology.
