New GA 250 compressor from Atlas Copco reduces energy bill and CO2 emissions


April 2013, Wilrijk, Belgium - Atlas Copco unveils an energy efficient GA 250 compressor, which is part of the newly introduced range of GA 160+-315 lubricated screw compressors. The new single stage element improves the performances by up to 10% compared to the previous generation. The intelligent Elektronikon controller integrates advanced functionalities to optimize the use of the compressor. Thanks to the energy recovery system, the heat generated by the compressor can be recovered and turned into a new energy source in the facility.

Around the globe, thousands of GA compressors are running in applications like power plants, mining, cement, glass and tire manufacturing. By combining this strong experience with innovative solutions, the GA160+-315 compressors reach new peaks of integration.
“With our global presence and strong service support teams, we have better insight of our customer’s priorities. Our commitment is to continue to invest in sustainable, innovative solutions to help them increase their productivity. This universal performer delivers high quality compressed air at the lowest operating cost “ says Chris Lybaert, President Oil free Air division.

Designed for an operation up to 55°C, this all-inclusive package integrates new additional features (like an oil containing frame, the electronic controlled water drain….) while the footprint is reduced by 5%. The unique GA Full Feature concept is the ultimate integrated solution to deliver clean dry air and improve the system’s reliability. In addition to that, longer service intervals, reduced maintenance time and easier installation further reduce the operating costs of the compressor.

“The GA160+ -315 open up new perspectives to boost the productivity of our customers. Today, we are starting an exciting new journey with the GA160+-315 range and we look forward to meeting our customers and present them how this fantastic offer can help them achieve more “ says Conrad Latham, Vice President Marketing Oil free Air division.

With the enhanced energy savings features of the GA 160+-315, reducing the energy bill and CO2 emissions become reality.
