Lubricated piston compressors from 0.5 to 25 HP and oil-free piston compressors from 0.5 to 3 HP

We have been producing piston compressors since 1948, and the experience we have gained in over 70 years has made us the world’s largest manufacturer of piston compressors, with over 1,500,000 units sold annually in more than 120 countries worldwide.

FNA has always focussed on product innovation, supplying the market with high performance and reliable piston compressors that are easy to use and transport. They are designed using technologically advanced tools, such as computerised structural analysis, 3D CAD design and sophisticated rapid prototyping techniques.

Dozens of active patents in many countries demonstrate and protect the originality of our continuous drive for innovation.

The professionalism of our workforce, the quality of our materials and our production processes enable us to produce robust piston processors with features that “make the difference”. These include the high-quality steel used for the valves and the precise mechanical machining of the pumping unit’s critical components, rigorously carried out in-house. The production solutions are validated with over 80,000 hours of endurance tests performed in our testing rooms every year.

Oil-injected rotary screw compressors from 2.2 to 315 kW

The FNA Group’s state-of-the-art technology is also evident in its single and 2-stage oil-injected rotary screw compressors, which are designed and produced in our Italian plants.

The process begins with the design phase, which relies on the most modern research and development tools, including computerised structural analysis, vibro-acoustic analysis and mathematical models for the operation of screw units and compressors, developed in cooperation with prestigious Italian universities.

The next stage is the high-standard production process, which uses modern and ultra-precise machine tools and control systems to manufacture the fundamental rotary compressor components in-house, such as screw units, suction regulators and minimum pressure valves.

A team of highly specialised engineers and technicians make this possible. They focus on developing and monitoring components and entire machines, guaranteeing the maximum performance, reliability and energy efficiency of our products.

The technology does not stop with the manufacture of the compressor but continues throughout its life.

Our machines can be fitted with remote monitoring systems that let you control all the main operating parameters online and accurately schedule maintenance intervals.

We can also perform energy analyses of existing systems using a calculation system that we developed in-house, and use numerical simulations to suggest the best solutions for our customers to optimise the energy efficiency of their systems.

OIL-FREE professional and industrial compressors

Oil-free compressed air is required in many professional and industrial sectors, including food and beverage production, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, painting and medical applications such as in laboratories and dental surgeries.

We have developed a wide range of compressors to meet these diverse applications, which can be divided into different families:

  • Piston compressors from 0.25 to 2.2 kW with low operating speeds for reduced noise and wear, ideal for the dental sector
  • “SCROLL” rotary spiral compressors from 2.2 to 7.5 kW, made in single units and available in different versions (floor standing, tank-mounted, with or without dryer)
  • “SCROLL” rotary spiral compressors from 11 to 30 kW, made up of 5.5 or 7.5 kW modular units that can be operated automatically, based on the amount of compressed air required by the system

Compressed air treatment

There are many compressed air applications where particular filtration standards and the absence of contaminants, such as moisture or traces of oil, are required.

“FSN Quality Air” specialises in manufacturing and distributing a wide range of compressed air treatment products, including dryers, filters and accessories, that meet these needs.

We offer solutions from the compressor room to where the compressed air is used, from simple workshops to large-scale industry, all designed and built with a focus on innovation, quality and the latest technology.
