Frigidaire made a rotary compressor and I think it was originally the late 40's in the States. It was called the Meter Miser and only had three moving parts.
It was made at the Frigidaire plant at Hendon as well up to the mid / late 60's.

Only scrapped one a few years ago maybe I should have kept it for old times sake installed loads in my time.

One last thought, they were also issued to us on a frame as vacuum pumps, I say issued in those days we had one per branch!

In reality, rotary compressors are of four general design configurations: (i) rolling piston, (ii) rotating vane, (iii) screw, and (iv) scroll.

I hope it helps, just done a quick check re my last post the Meter Mister dates back to 1933.
Google Frigidaire and trace the history, I don't go back to 1933 my association with product dates from the 1960's

We designed and already produced first sample of rotary vane compressor for heat pumps and 3d generation rotary vane air compressor for breaking assistance in railway's wagons and trolley buses.

Now we are looking for investor.

The 1933-1934 CA series of GE Monitor top refrigerators use a rotary compressor (vane type I believe) with methyl formate as refrigerant.

I'm trying desperately to find info on these. I have plenty of info on the SO2 Monitor tops (DR, CK and so on) but absolutely nothing on the methyl formate ones. :confused::mad:
