The Atlas Copco GA VSDS variable speed drive compressor can adapt and optimize its operation for each customer. The new technology will be available first in the 30 to 50 hp (22 to 37 kW) GA oil-injected screw compressor range.
The compressor has a minimal number of components and is the first compressor to feature an IE5 ferrite-assisted synchronous reluctance motor, eradicating the need for the use of increasingly precious and rare earth materials.
The GA VSDS provides up to 20% higher free air delivery (FAD) than a fixed-speed equivalent. This provides users a unique opportunity to select a lower horsepower compressor and still get the air they need.
The Smart Temperature Control (STC) system ensures that the compressor operates with an optimal oil temperature at all times. As a result, it completely eliminates the risk of condensation while ensuring maximum compression efficiency.
The GA VSDS also comes with the all-new Boost Flow Mode, which gives users the freedom to temporarily and safely exceed their compressor’s maximum capacity.
It comes with industry-leading connectivity features. These include its advanced Elektronikon Touch controller, the EQ2i multiple compressor control (integrated as standard), SMARTLINK remote monitoring and analysis, and OPC UA integration for connected production environments.
With sound levels as low as 63 dB(A), the GA 22-37 VSDS does not require a compressor room; it can be installed on the production floor. Thanks to a vertical, compact design, the compressor takes up very little space.
