Together with this unrivalled level of energy efficiency, the GA VSDS also leads the way in sustainability − the guiding principle of its innovative design. For example, the new unit not only comprises the minimal number of components but is the first compressor to feature an IE5 ferrite-assisted synchronous reluctance motor that does not rely on rare earth materials in its operation.
With a Free Air Delivery 21% higher than its fixed-speed counterparts, the VSDS introduces a host of smart features that allow it to adapt and optimise performance to the user’s applications, requirements, and conditions.
The most important example is the Smart Temperature Control (STC) system, which ensures that the compressor operates with an optimal oil temperature at all times, completely eliminating the risk of condensation while ensuring maximum compression efficiency. The GA VSDS also comes with the all-new Boost Flow Mode, which gives customers the freedom to exceed their compressor’s maximum capacity temporarily and safely.
Small and silent, with sound levels as low as 63 dB, the GA 22-37 VSDS does not require a compressor room site. It can be installed on the production floor, occupying the minimum footprint thanks to its vertical, compact design.
The GA VSDS concept incorporates industry-leading connectivity features such as the advanced Elektronikon® Touch controller, the EQ2i multiple compressor control (integrated as standard), SMARTLINK remote monitoring and analysis, and OPC UA integration for connected production environments.
The new VSDˢ offers true sustainable innovation. As climate change affects us all, Atlas Copco has made sustainable productivity its number one focus. The GA VSDˢ set out to meet today’s standards but also those of tomorrow. It’s a truly transformative compressor for a rapidly changing industry.
