From simple compressors through to complex custom-engineered solutions, Reavell covers a wide range of applications in support of some of the world’s leading companies.
Reavell was founded over a century ago on the 11 June 1898 as Reavell & Co Ltd. Engineers. Founded by Sir William Reavell on Ranelagh Road in Ipswich, the organisation specialised in steam engines and quadruplex compressors. Valued by engineering organisations and institutions for its durability and quality, Reavell compressors were used during the construction of the London Underground, the infancy stages of submarine warfare and the starting of diesel engines on British battleships and transatlantic ocean liners.
During the next decades Reavell equipment became increasingly popular across the world, leading the way in the usage of Compressed Natural Gas as a fuel source, while establishing Reavell quality as the unchallenged global benchmark for Heliox deep sea breathing applications.
Our engineering teams have been at the forefront of lubricated high compression systems for over a century. Combining class-leading technology leadership with a unique pedigree, our systems prove to be the solution of choice.
As an integral brand of Gardner Denver, Reavell is now manufactured in the high pressure Centre of Excellence based in Redditch (Birmingham), UK. Reavell has spent the last century dedicated to engineering excellence with complete commitment to total systems solutions.
Combining state-of-the-art product development, a unique testing facility and streamlined assembly with the industry’s leading refurbishment capability, Reavell’s product range is the envy of the sector.
