The next generation of marine starting air compressors

Hamworthy’s V-Line series is a major breakthrough in marine compressor design, setting unequalled standards of performance, reliability and cost control aboard ship by offering a unique blend of features and benefits.

Cuts through-life costs by 60%

The major items with regard to spares and service are the suction and discharge valves. By using concentric type valves together with other design features such as reduced oil carry over and interstage moisture separation we have increased the valve inspection intervals tenfold to 2000 hours, once in every 2 years.
