Atlas Copco enters vacuum market with its own oil-injected vacuum pump system
Atlas Copco’s expertise in compressor technique will now also be applied to vacuum pump technology. Thanks to the synergies between compressed air and vacuum technology, Atlas Copco now designs and manufactures its own vacuum pump systems with the same quality and reliability as those of Atlas Copco’s compressors. With the new GV oil-sealed rotary screw vacuum pump, Atlas Copco launches its first pump system for “rough vacuum” between 0.5mbar and 500mbar.
The GV offers a reliable, efficient vacuum
Thanks to its modulating valve, fitted at the pump inlet, the capacity can be matched to the actual demand. This concept not only minimizes the system’s vacuum level fluctuations, but also operates the pump at the lowest possible energy point. The vacuum pump also has to stop/start less frequently, leading to less wear and maintenance and therefore increased reliability.
Rough vacuum suitable for the general industry
Thanks to its quiet operation, the GV can be installed close to the point of use. But this technology also allows for remote installation as part of a centralized vacuum system.
