The GXe range of oil lubricated compressors, recently launched by Atlas Copco Compressors , aims to bring the power of reliability of an industrial screw compressor to any type of small and medium sized industry.
The new range has been certified with Green Label Level Two efficiency for all kW sizes from 7 to 22 kW. A belt-driven design and full sound enclosure ensures that GXe oil lubricated compressors operate quietly, and can be installed close to the point of use.
This close proximity to the production point means that GXe compressors are easy to install, requiring less piping and resulting in lower pressure drops and reduced installation costs.
Designed for reliable, continuous operation, GXe compressors are capable of operating even under harsh conditions, and in ambient temperatures up to 46°C. An optional integrated refrigerant dryer and in-line air filters can protect compressed air networks and installation.
When developing the GXe range, Atlas Copco Compressors had serviceability in mind. The high quality, belt-drive compressor elements and long lifetime stable operation of GXe oil lubricated compressors ensures lasting reliability, and low maintenance requirements.
Components that will require servicing are grouped closely together, allowing for easy accessibility and the possibility of placing the compressor as close as 150mm away from a wall.
Finally, the GXe’s controller ensures peace of mind, allowing users to monitor phase sequence and pressure at all times. Warning indicators automatically signal maintenance intervals
