Sullivan-Palatek, Inc., a leader in innovation and design, is excited to announce the recent opportunity to be the sole distributor for German compressor manufacturer, Aqua Air, in the United States. Aqua Air water injected rotary screw compressors are innovative in both operation and design, providing 100% oil-free air from 5-15 hp. The design provides cool clean air, is a self-contained system and requires zero make-up water. The compressor will be offered as a package that includes a Sullivan-Palatek Refrigerated Dryer.

The Aqua Air water-injected rotary screw air compressor

 A necessary solution for dozens of industries, 100% oil-free production of compressed air is now safe and sustainable. The self-contained compressor generates the necessary coolant directly from ambient air, using the most natural and environmentally-friendly fluid available: pure water! Using only water from the atmosphere, Aqua Air produces no waste oil, and maintains outstanding performance throughout its entire lifecycle. This makes production economically feasible, since no costs are incurred for procuring, filtering and disposing of oil-based lubricants.

Internally, Aqua Air uses a maintenance and wear-free floating bearing design created with the highest grade tolerances which are the foundation for a long life and reliable screw compressor air end. The rotor profiles are a unique composition of a self-healing proprietary polymer material enhancing efficiency and long-term performance. Durable and reliable, the separation and return of condensate into the circulation system takes place without any mechanical components. A performance-engineered inlet air control valve and a three-stage, heavy-duty inlet filter with remote inlet connection are standard supply. This design improves air control and system performance with minimal pressure drop. The integrated injection manifold and water filter manifold are directly bolted to each other. By using o-rings, the seal between the essential components is leak free. The water filter has separate filter elements for operation and bearing injection.

Headquartered in Michigan City, Indiana, Sullivan-Palatek leads the industry for design and manufacturing of air compressors.  In business since, 1984, Sullivan-Palatek was awarded the prestigious Pillar of the Industry award from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers for achieving Gold status for supporting the I Make America Campaign in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
