  • Dry-running:
    self-lubricating long life high performance vanes, no oil to fill, drain, change or discard
  • Easy maintenance:
    lifetime-lubricated bearings, service kit on-site, standard tools
  • Economical:
    low energy consumption, costeffective maintenance, long life high performance vanes
  • Compact:
    direct-drive construction

Seco SD dry-running rotary vane compressors are compact, reliable and extremly powerful. The proven dryrunning rotary vane technology ensures an efficient and pulsation-free supply of blast and compressed air of up to 0.75 Torr for many industrial applications.

Seco rotary vane compressors are characterized by oil-free vacuum and a high level of availability and operational reliability. This is ensured by hard-wearing and self-lubricating vanes made from special graphite, the robust construction and lifetime-lubricated bearings. The compact design of the Seco compressors allows them to be fitted or installed in many locations. The energy-efficient motor ensures economical operation.

Seco rotary vane compressors are perfectly suited for use in pick and place applications for clamping and holding, medical, electronic, packaging and printing and many other industrial applications.

Seco rotary vane compressors are equipped with Aerodur 274 Zirkon vanes that are extremely resistant to wear and humidity. These vanes have a lifetime at least 3 times longer than any other standard vanes on the market, ensuring very high uptime and reduced operating costs for the end user.

Maintenance can be easily carried out by the operator. Aside from regular checks or changing of the vanes and filter replacement at recommended service intervals, no additional maintenance is required.

Technical specifications
Seco compressors work in accordance to the proven rotary vane technology. Due to self-lubricating rotor vanes, no operating fluid is necessary. The compression occurs as part of a completely dry process. A standardized integrated filter protects the compressor from contamination. A consistently high vacuum level in continuous operation is ensured by perfectly coordinated materials, the special graphite vanes in the compression chamber, effective heat discharge and state-of-the-art and precise manufacturing. The standardized pressure regulating valve makes it easy to set the pressure to the perfect level.
