Atlas Copco introduces a revolutionary alternative for traditional oil cooling systems. The new GA VSDs compressors are equipped with a Smart Temperature Control System, developed in-house by the Atlas Copco R&D team, to ensure an optimal oil temperature at all times. Learn all about it here.
Traditional mechanical thermostats only provide limited support. In order to ensure that the element is protected – even at the expense of greater efficiency – they tend to set a relatively high oil temperature. As a result, compressors with a mechanical thermostat consume more energy than they would with an optimized oil temperature.
Unfortunately, finding and maintaining a compressor’s ideal oil temperature has proven to be nearly impossible in the past. Because ambient conditions change constantly, a temperature that is ideal one minute may end up being inefficient the next.
That’s where the VSDs comes in.
The oil temperature directly impacts the performance of your lubricated compressor. Developed in-house by Atlas Copco, the Smart Temperature Control System ensures an optimal oil temperature at all times by acting as a heater or cooler as needed.
Here is how STC works:
The innovative Neos Next inverter technology is only one of the VSDs’s innovative components. Looking for the best of the best? Look no further. Our engineers innovated all crucial components:
VSD stands for variable speed drive. Hidden behind these letters is (inverter) technology that automatically adjusts the compressor’s motor speed to the compressed air demand in real time. This often saves a lot of energy and money. Find out in this e-book how a VSD can work for you.
