On Hannover Messe 2013, Atlas Copco (Commerce City, CO) unveiled a compact oil-injected rotary screw compressor from 7 to 37 kW: the 7-37 GA VSD+. Besides a small footprint, it offers a leap forward in Free Air Delivery (improvements of up to 12 percent), and a breakthrough energy-efficiency: it requires on average 50 percent less energy than a comparable idling compressor, says the company. This new type of compressor offering a variable speed (frequency-controlled) will be suitable for most industries and aims to contribute significantly to the green economy needs. This new type of compressor offers better performances with less energy consumed, low noise levels, and a compact footprint. With the GA VSD+, a variable speed drive compressor achieves better performances even at full load than a comparable idling compressor, according to the company.
