Atlas Copco To Exhibit at NPE2018: The Plastics Show May 7-11

Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, will exhibit at NPE2018: The Plastics Show from May 7-10 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

At the trade show, Atlas Copco will be showcasing the GA VSD+ air compressor, GHS VSD+ vacuum pump and the DZS 150V vacuum pump. Attendees are invited to stop by booth S35207 to learn how these products provide reliable and energy-efficient solutions for plastics manufacturing applications.

Helping users reduce energy consumption by up to 50 percent, the GA VSD+ utilizes Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology to adjust the compressor’s motor speed to match the compressed air supply with demand. On top of its energy savings, the GA VSD+ realizes a Free Air Delivery increase of up to 12 percent for improved efficiency and performance.

Unlike conventional oil-sealed and dry vane vacuum pumps, the GHS VSD+ is much quieter and easy to install with plug-and-play installation. All pumps come equipped with Elektronikon controllers that can be integrated into a process control system for remote monitoring. Users can easily connect the controllers with their mobile devices through the Atlas Copco SMARTLINK system for access to machine data anytime, anywhere. Similar to the GA VSD+ compressor, these vacuum pumps also utilize VSD technology for energy savings up to 50 percent.

The DZS 150V incorporates an innovative modular, easy-clean design to establish a new benchmark in dry claw vacuum pump simplicity, robustness, efficiency and contaminant handling capacity. The pump’s separation of the pumping chamber from the gearbox allows for easy access in the removal, cleaning and re-assembly of the stainless-steel claws, while eliminating the need to strip and re-time gears after cleaning. The isolation of the gearbox also minimizes the risk of contamination from process gearbox oil that can be common with traditional pump technologies.

With high oil retention levels at all operating pressures, the GVS 60A ensures reliability for a wide range of industrial applications. The GVS A series operates with internal injection channels, reducing the number of gaskets and external piping required. With fewer components and a compact design, the risk of leakage and failures is significantly minimized.

NPE2018 brings together a wide ranging audience of exhibitors, organizations and attendees who are both involved and interested in plastics manufacturing. Over 2,000 exhibitors and organizations are expected at this year’s show, and attendees are invited to stop by Atlas Copco’s booth S35207 to learn more about state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment.
