The aucon machine
The Aucon machine belongs to the group of so called rotary displacement machines, of which there are many on the market. Below some of them are depicted. Common to all is that they form volume changes during rotation in order to compress a fluid or to transform a fluid to a rotating movement. Compressors, air engines and pumps are examples of such machines. Each of them has advantages and drawbacks and thus a limited application area.
The difference with the Aucon machine is that it has a wider use because of a combination of simpler design and higher pressure.
Some displacement machines which are currently in use on the market
The cylinder of the Aucon machine has only one vane
The advantage of the Aucon machine is that it unites the best efficiency of the piston compressor and the flexibility of the small vane machines. It has a simple design and geometry for a cheaper manufacturing cost.
