Mattei BLADE i Variable-Speed
Direct-Drive Series Air Compressors

27 to 127 SCFM
Mattei BLADE i Series Direct-Drive Air Compressors combine their legendary vane technology with traditional shaft-to-shaft coupling to provide industry leading performance. As quiet as 66 dB(A), all models turn at a slow 1,800 rpm and less, and offer operating pressures to 145 psi, directdrive BLADE i Series is the ideal solution for body shops, mechanical shops, and manufacturers. All models are equipped with efficient TEFC motors, full-voltage motors starters, aircooled aftercoolers, MAESTRO XB controllers with Continuous and Automatic operating modes with standard load/unload operation on all models.

• Rotary vane technology
• Heavy-duty belt-driven transmission
• Compact design
• Low maintenance
• Quiet operation
• Simple reliable controls
The BLADE i compressor is equipped with an Inverter system that always assures the highest energy savings. The compressor’s inverter automatically adjusts the motor’s rotational speed to ensure that the air delivered by the compressor always corresponds to the real-time demand.

Base-Mounted Version allows you to use existing air receiver tanks.

Tank-Mounted Version features the BLADE 4 - 11 Series, mounted onto an 80-gallon ASME air receiver. Includes pressure gauge, safety valve, and manual tank drain valve.

Blade 8/12 i Tank Mounted Version features the BLADE 8 or 12 Mounted onto an 80 gallon or 120 gallon ASME air receiver. Includes pressure gauge, safety valve, and manual tank drain valve.

Blade 8/12 i. SE Quality Air Station Version includes moisture separator with intelligent drain, 1.0 micron prefilter, refrigerated air dryer sized for summer heat, all mounted and piped onto an 80 gallon or 120 gallon horizontal ASME air tank.

When compared to other compressors the BLADE’s very low rotational speed, a distinctive feature of a Mattei compressor, means more air, greater reliability, reduced energy consumption and quiet operation. Available in the silenced BLADE i, BLADE E i (with dryer kit), BLADE S i (on receiver) and BLADE SE i (on receiver with dryer kit) versions, they feature automatic control of air flow at constant pressure and an aftercooler.
