Atlas Copco to Showcase New GA 160 VSD+ and MDG Rotary Drum Dryer at 2018 POWER-GEN International

Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, will showcase the newest addition to the company’s smart AIR solutions portfolio, the GA 160 VSD+ compressor, from Dec. 4-6 at the 2018 POWER-GEN International in Orlando. In addition to the GA 160 VSD+, Atlas Copco will feature a 3D model of the new MDG rotary drum dryer. Atlas Copco will host a reception for attendees in booth #1709 on Dec. 4 at 3 p.m.

The new GA 160 VSD+ oil-injected screw compressor features a newly designed state-of-the-art compression element and was designed to provide triple benefits when it comes to efficiency, service and uptime. It features state-of-the-art compression elements with Smart Injection technology coupled with a highly efficient, ultra-premium, oil-cooled IE5 permanent magnet motor. Optimum efficiency is achieved through a highly efficient drivetrain, low internal pressure drops, and precise control. The full-featured GA 160 VSD+ air compressor comes with an integrated dryer.

The new MDG rotary drum dryer is a revolutionary technology that guarantees a stable pressure dew point (PDP) of -40°F at almost zero energy cost. The MDG air dryers deliver cost-effective dry and oil-free air, with a total power consumption below 0.2 kW in all operational conditions. Its simplified design takes up less floor space, has no heating elements, no blower and no loss of compressed air. With fewer moving parts, the dryer requires less maintenance while offering more reliability than other dryers with -40°F PDP performance.
