New ZT 90-160 air compressor available with even more energy efficient compressor elements
Reading time: 3,30 minutes
Atlas Copco’s ZT 90-160 air-cooled oil-free screw air compressor is available with fixed or variable speed drive and with or without an integrated dryer. The compressor elements have been adapted to work even more energy efficiently and an advanced touchscreen monitoring system has been added to the completely redesigned canopy. The ZT 90-160 is the latest addition to Atlas Copco’s smart AIR solutions portfolio.
All components in the compressor element, such as the rotor profiles, smart inlet (patent pending) and rotor coating, have been redesigned for maximum efficiency and durability. The design and sealing of the venting chamber ensure physical separation between the oil and air circuits, eliminating any possibility of oil entering the compressed air chamber and thus guaranteeing Class 0 oil-free air.
Thanks to innovative yet proven technologies, the ZT 90-160 efficiently provides oil-free compressed air in a variety of industries such as food & beverage, textiles, oil & gas and power generation. The unit is housed in a completely plug-and-play, soundproof package, and is designed for low maintenance time and costs.
The ZT 90-160 works together with the Atlas Copco’s new Optimizer 4.0 central controller. It enables a compressed air system to be optimized through selection of the most efficient combination of machines, such as compressors, dryers, filters, controllers, energy recovery systems, generators, air receivers, coolers and boosters. Through a highly intuitive user interface, the end-user can view the performance and energy consumption of each machine as well as of the whole system. Moreover, Optimizer 4.0 is fully Industry 4.0 compatible, enabling the Internet of Things and the digital integration of the air compressed system with other intelligent networked devices to improve equipment performance, enhance predictive maintenance and further increase energy efficiency. The ZT 90-160 can be included in a Total Responsibility Plan, in which Atlas Copco takes care of all compressor maintenance, upgrades, repairs and possible breakdowns.
