Breakthrough Air Compressor Technology Is Redefining The Market

There has been a radical shift in air compressor technology over the last few years. A lot of the drawbacks of the previous generation of air compressors have been completely eliminated simply by switching to Gardner Denver’s Quantima™ air compressors.

The problems with traditional air compressors are – they are expensive to run, need continual maintenance to ensure you don’t end up with a very costly repair bill and aren’t particularly efficient compared to what they could be.

Gardner Denver is confident that by using their new Quantima™ Air Compressors you can easily slash 25% of the total cost of ownership compared to other air compressors on the market. Quantima™ air compressors use Variable rate technology to match output to requirement minimizing off-load running and have the lowest off-load power, just 2.5% of full load power. (That’s 7kW for a 300kW compressor).

The Quantima™ range has only a single moving part contained in a magnetic field – so it has no wear and tear. There is no gearbox and no contact parts which cause the bulk of the maintenance issues with a conventional compressor.

Simplification means less maintenance and greater reliability. Compare a screw air compressor to a Quantima™ – see how much less can go wrong.

Component Quantima™ Standard Screw Technology
Gears 0 7
Bearings 4 19
Seals 2 19
Oil System 0 1


Going Green As A Bonus

Using a Quantima™ also means:-

  • You don’t use a drop of oil in your compressor – no oil or oily parts to dispose of
  • Reduced carbon emissions through lowest energy use over its lifetime (saving you money in the process)
  • Lower physical resources used in manufacture
  • Smallest foot print- Quantima™ are about 40-50% the size of an equivalent screw machine
  • Low noise levels – just 69DB (about as loud as a vacuum cleaner)


You know that energy is by far the biggest cost associated with your compressed air system. Quantima™ can deliver significant power savings in your compressed air generation, but so too can improvements in your compressed air distribution and use.
