Atlas Copco Compressors Australia introduces its new line of oil-injected screw compressors ranging from 30 kW to 90 kW.
The new range of oil-injected screw compressors offers significant improvements in sustainability and reliability, in addition to a performance increase of up to 10%.
The three products in the GA 30+ to 90 (VSD) range include the GA 37-90 VSD with an integrated variable speed drive motor, the GA 30+ to 75+ premium efficiency fixed speed variant with IE3/NEMA motor, offering industry-leading efficiency and best in class Free Air Delivery (FAD) as well as the solid FAD base performing GA 37-90.
The Elektronikon, Atlas Copco’s in-house designed compressor controller offers advanced, reliable and continuous monitoring of compressor performance. The Elektronikon’s predictive monitoring, along with easily accessible components allows for easy servicing, less maintenance and more compressor uptime.
Major performance enhancements have been achieved by Atlas Copco engineers by focusing on improving the key components of the compressor.
Key features of Atlas Copco’s GA oil-injected screw compressors:
- Cool canopy and single-ducting principle influence both performance and serviceability
- Temperatures at the element outlet are down by 10ºC
- IE3/NEMA premium efficiency motors, combined with highly efficient screw elements in all ranges
- GA 37-90 VSD range equipped with a dedicated VSD motor, matching the compressor’s output to the actual demand
- Helps the compressor achieve on average 35% energy savings and a lifecycle cost reduction of up to 22%
- No idling times or blow-off losses
- Integrated compressor controls and start-up under system pressure
- Integrated dryer makes use of the environment-friendly refrigerant, R410A that also reduces the dryer’s power consumption by 50%
- Improved oil treatment system results in 50% less oil consumption and reduced maintenance
- Integrated condensate treatment allows the compressor’s condensate to be safely disposed into the sewage system
- Canopy draws in less conductive dust, thanks to the over-pressure in the cubicle
