Top Tip: Know the facts about air compressors and energy
Did you know that compressed air accounts for as much as 30% of a factory’s energy consumption? Or that 5 out of 10 manufacturers find out from an audit that a smaller VSD compressor could replace their old compressor and save energy and emissions?
Revolutionary VSD+ compressors now available from 37 up to 75 kW
Atlas Copco has expanded its popular range of GA VSD+ oil-injected rotary screw compressors with new 37, 45, 55 and 75 kW models that deliver unsurpassed efficiency in a space-saving upright format. These compressors give more industrial users the option of having the most efficient compressor on the market, which can reduce energy consumption by on average 50%.
Manufacturer secures £10,000 annual energy saving following compressed air upgrade
Heritage Trade Frames, a fabricator and installer of domestic and commercial windows, doors and conservatories in the North West of England, has realised annual energy savings of at least £10,000 and pushed up productivity after choosing a compressed air systems upgrade from Atlas Copco.
Two in one filter introduced to fit 160-315 kW compressors
A larger version of Atlas Copco’s UD+ coalescing filter has been launched to be used with the new GA 160+-315 range of oil-injected rotary screw compressors. The UD+ replaces conventional two-stage oil aerosol and solid particle filters by incorporating innovative two-in-one filter technology, which provides higher energy efficiency without compromising on performance or reliability.
What are the benefits of having a dedicated compressor drive?
You might not be aware that Atlas Copco has developed its own inverter, specifically suited to compressors and designed to operate in the heavy-duty environments that a compressor can find itself in. The Neos is IP5X protected and has already proven its worth, with over 18 million running hours in the field. We have Neos upgrade kits for all GA30-90 VSD compressors.
If your inverter suffers from heat, dust or over currents, contact us about a Neos upgrade kit at email@example.com
