Atlas Copco has launched a new range of vacuum products designed to support the specific needs of customers across diverse markets and many common vacuum applications.

Atlas Copco’s new vacuum portfolio includes 2-stage oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps, vacuum booster pumps, piston pumps, liquid ring pumps and steam ejectors. The new vacuum products can support several industries from mining, cement, paper, refineries and food to aerospace, automotive, refrigeration, glass, bottling, canning and woodworking.

Atlas Copco plans to introduce an innovative, intelligent vacuum pump, the GHS VSD+, a new range of highly efficient, intelligent vacuum pumps with Variable Speed Drive (VSD). Based on the well-known and durable plug-and-play design principles of Atlas Copco compressors, these vacuum pumps have been designed by vacuum engineers to deliver peak performance at operating pressures commonly found in industrial applications.

Key benefits of the GHS VSD+ series vacuum pumps include 50 per cent energy savings; advanced variable speed drive and innovative motor design increasing efficiency and reducing lifecycle costs; significantly better performance against benchmarked oil-sealed and dry vane vacuum pumps; quiet operation; sustainable productivity due to built-in efficiency, conforming to energy management and environmental commitments according to ISO 50001/14001; and reduced environmental impact due to ultra-high oil retention at all operating pressures.

Atlas Copco’s range of vacuum solutions:

GVD 0.7-28 series

The GVD 0.7-28 series of small 2-stage oil-sealed rotary vane pumps delivers excellent ultimate vacuum pressure, high pumping efficiency and superior vapour handling capabilities with quiet operation. Offering reliable and stable proven performance that sets the industry standards for R&D and scientific pumping applications, all pumps/motors are approved to UL and CSA standards.

GVD 40-275 series

The GVD 40-275 series of 2-stage oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps offers high ultimate vacuum, rapid pumping speeds and quiet operation with the ability to handle water vapour. Inherently compact and vibration-free, these direct drive rotary vane pumps offer excellent operator protection with their finger-proof fan and coupling housings.

ZRS 250-4200 series

Based on the simple rotary lobe principle, ZRS 250-4200 mechanical booster pumps are ideal for applications requiring high pumping speeds for pressures in the region of 0.01 to 50 mbar. This pump must always be backed by another pump, which can deliver against a high-pressure differential to atmospheric pressure. Operating at relatively low pressures, the mechanical booster pump is highly reliable as it is not exposed to the same concentrations of corrosive process media as the backing pump.

GLS 250-500 series

The Atlas Copco GLS 250-500 series of rotary piston pumps sets the standard for performance and reliability as the industry’s most efficient, space-saving design with over 10,000 units sold. The new upgraded version of the GLS delivers even better dependability and productivity combined with minimal maintenance and process downtime. These pumps are recommended for demanding applications such as the automotive or aerospace industry and their supply chains.

AW series

Atlas Copco liquid ring vacuum pumps are offered as standard packages in a number of configurations, and are suitable for operation in once through, partial or total recirculation. The AW liquid ring vacuum pumps are available for both single (AWS) and two stage pumps (AWD) with a 200-37500 m³/h capacity range and vacuum levels down to 30 mbar (a).
