New ZT 90-160 brings improved monitoring system and energy efficiency
Atlas Copco has introduced a new version of its ZT 90-160 air-cooled oil-free screw air compressor, including re-designed compressor elements that have been adapted to work even more efficiently than previous elements. Available with fixed or variable speed drive and with or without an integrated dryer, the ZT 90-160 also features an advanced touchscreen monitoring system that enables end users to evaluate, adjust and optimise the pressure and performance of the compressor in real-time.

All components in the ZT 90-160’s compressor element, such as the rotor profiles, inlet and rotor coating, have been re-designed for maximum efficiency and durability. For instance, the design and sealing of the venting chamber ensures 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 compressor contains an integrated NEOS drive that communicates directly with the new, user-friendly, touchscreen Elektronikon® Mk5 Touch Controller. Mk5 Touch displays warning indications, maintenance scheduling and provides online visualisation of the machine’s condition. The data monitoring program SMARTLINK is integrated as standard. This remote monitoring system optimises the compressed air system and reduces energy and cost.
