With the expansion of the range up to 37kW, Atlas Copco is now able to offer its breakthrough VSD+ technology, which provides industry leading energy savings of 50% on average, a 13% leap in Free Air Delivery and a canopy less than half the size of traditional fixed speed compressors, to 75% of oil-injected screw compressors users worldwide.
In addition to expanding the GA VSD+ range, Atlas Copco has also introduced its new ‘condensation prevention cycle’ for Variable Speed Drive compressors.
Thanks to an algorithm in the Elektronikon controller of the GA VSD+, condensation in the compression oil is prevented in all circumstances, even in those where the compressor is oversized for the application and has to deal with extremely low load conditions (where the compressor is operated for less than a minute every hour).
