Break­through com­pres­sor tech­nol­ogy has ar­rived

At­las Copco trans­lated the most re­quested needs of its cus­tomers in this new type of com­pres­sor: bet­ter per­for­mances, with less en­ergy con­sumed, low noise lev­els and a com­pact foot­print.

In 1994, At­las Copco pi­o­neered the vari­able speed drive com­pres­sor and now we have launched an in­no­va­tion that will once again set the bench­mark in the com­pres­sor in­dus­try.

With the GA VSD+, a vari­able speed drive com­pres­sor achieves bet­ter per­for­mances even at full load than a com­pa­ra­ble idling com­pres­sor. This in­no­va­tion will en­able all com­pres­sor users to switch over to vari­able speed drive com­pres­sors, an im­por­tant step to­wards a more sus­tain­able in­dus­try. Small com­pres­sor, big ideas At­las Copco eval­u­ated ev­ery part in this com­pres­sor: a more ef­fi­cient fan, ro­bust air in­take sys­tem, elim­i­nat­ing all blow-off losses, and the best elec­tronic com­po­nents to­gether with the new drive train add up to en­ergy sav­ings of 50% on aver­age com­pared to a tra­di­tional idling com­pres­sor of the same type. The new GA VSD+ is an­other 15% more ef­fi­cient than At­las Copco’s cur­rent Vari­able Speed Drive com­pres­sor (the GA 7-37 VSD). A full fea­ture ver­sion with an in­te­grated re­frig­er­ant dryer is avail­able as op­tion.

Sev­eral key com­po­nents like the drive train as well as for the gen­eral de­sign of the GA VSD+, are pro­tected by At­las Copco, with many patents on their way, thanks to the in­tro­duc­tion of an in­te­rior per­ma­nent mag­net mo­tor. This new mo­tor achieves an ef­fi­ciency cor­re­spond­ing to IE4 (Su­per Pre­mium Ef­fi­ciency mo­tor class).

The mo­tor and drive train share one drive shaft and are ver­ti­cally aligned to al­low a smaller foot­print of 55% com­pared to the pre­vi­ous range.

Since the in­tro­duc­tion glob­ally, the strong de­mand for this prod­uct from our cus­tomers , is prov­ing the mar­ket need and ac­cep­tance of this state of the art prod­uct.­eren­quiry #D131224a
