Atlas Copco’s rotary screw compressors

Made to last and will run 24/7 due to their energy efficient design.

Rotary air compressors are positive displacement compressors.

These compressors consist of two rotors within a casing where the rotors compress the air internally.

There are no valves.

These units are basically oil cooled (with air cooled or water cooled oil coolers) where the oil seals the internal clearances.

Since the cooling takes place right inside the compressor, the working parts never experience extreme operating temperatures.

The rotary compressor, therefore, is a continuous duty, air- cooled or water-cooled compressor package.

Rotary screw air compressors are easy to maintain and operate.

Advantages of the rotary screw compressor include smooth, pulse-free air output in a compact size with high output volume over a long life.

The oil-free rotary screw air compressor utilises specially designed air ends to compress air without oil in the compression chamber yielding true oil-free air.

Oil-free rotary screw air compressors are available air-cooled and water-cooled and provide the same flexibility as oil- flooded rotaries when oil-free air is required.

Why use a variable speed air compressor?

It’s simple—want to reduce energy? Select the most energy efficient compressor money can buy!

Atlas Copco’s GA VSD+ range brings a game-changing innovation to the industry.

The GA 7-15 VSD+ variable speed drive compressor reduces your energy consumption by a staggering 50% on average, compared to idling compressors. At the same time it offers improved performance, silent operation (down to 62 dB(A) and a compact footprint, thanks to its vertical drive train design.

The heart of the GA VSD+ is an interior permanent magnet motor, directly coupled to Atlas Copco’s best-in-class screw element: all of which have been in-house designed and have patents pending. All these benefits make the GA VSD+ the compressor of the future, setting a new standard in the industry for years to come.

GA VSD+ Features:

  • Free air delivery up 12%
  • Energy savings of 50% on average
  • Running as silent as 62 dB(A)
  • Canopy size 55% smaller
  • Tested & proven reliability

Exceptional Energy Savings

Atlas Copco’s GA Variable Speed Drive+ (VSD+) technology closely follows the air demand by automatically adjusting the motor speed to match the compressed air supply to the air demand.

Combined with the innovative design of the iPM (Permanent Magnet) motor (efficiency corresponding to IE4 efficiency), this results in average energy savings of 50% and an average cut of 37% in the lifecycle cost of a compressor.

A new, more efficient fan motor achieves another saving on specific energy requirements of up to 7% of the compressor power. On top of the energy savings, the GA VSD+ realizes a Free Air Delivery (FAD) increase of up to 12%.

The design of the motor and the drive train are protected by pending patents.
