Champion® LV/LVR Series Fixed Speed Rotary Vane Compressors: Simplex

The Champion® simplex LV/LVR Series are direct drive, fixed speed, rotary vane compressors from 2-15 hp. These compressors offer a 100% duty cycle and produce 100–150 psi. Available in airend only, tripod, simplex, and hypac configurations. Simplex compressors produce 6.3–50.2 ACFM @ 100 psi and 4.5–47.6 ACFM @ 150 psi.


The Champion® LV/LVR Series are fixed speed, direct drive rotary vane compressors designed for 100% duty cycle with low noise. Their compact, simple, robust, and integrated design allows them to be fitted anywhere undercover. These units are available in airend only, compressor plus motor, tank mounted, or hypac configurations (airend, motor, tank, and dryer). They are easy to install and maintain as well as extremely quiet. They are designed for a wide variety of applications including automobile, body shops, wood working, dentistry, laundry, packaging, and machine tools.

The 5, 7.5 and 10 hp hypac is a complete air system in one package using a tank mounted LV/LVR Series lubricated rotary vane compressor similar to the simplex with an oversized GSRN refrigerated air dryer to better treat the air before releasing it to the plant supply. The 150 psi hypac comes equipped with the standard non-cycling refrigerated dryer. The 100 psi options are equipped with a high temperature refrigerated dryer. Different dryer types were used to maintain optimal dew point levels.

V/VR Series: Simplex* Performance Data

Champion V/VR Series Simplex

* All of the above models (V/VR) include a starter.

Rotary vane units should be used in 100% duty cycle applications. For duty cycles where the unit is predominately off (intermittent), a rotary vane is not a great choice as the unit is not on long enough to get / keep the oil hot. This results in water being created which will cause catastrophic failure to the airend.
