Atlas Copco's re-engineered GA compressors offer increased air delivery and reduced electricity consumption
Atlas Copco has re-engineered its range of small GA compressors, 15-40 hp GA+/GA VSD, in order to provide greater energy savings for workshops and industries through a combination of Free Air Delivery (FAD), increased efficiency, a smaller compressor footprint and lower noise levels. Atlas Copco’s engineering improvements have increased FAD from 7% to 17% over previous GA models and increased FAD from 9 to 24% for the GA VSD. All of the Atlas Copco 15-40 hp GA+/GA VSD models are now among the most energy efficient in the industry, with a Specific Energy Requirement (SER) improvement of 3% to 11% over previous models and an improvement of 11% to 13% for the GA VSD. A user-friendly controller operates every model to ensure maximum energy savings and correct servicing intervals. Energy consumption can be reduced even further in the full-feature version by integrating the dryer in the unit.
In addition, the Atlas Copco 15-40 hp GA+/GA VSD models use up to 80% less space compared to similar compressors on the market, and the fixed-speed compressors also operate at 63 dBA. The low noise levels combined with the small footprint allow manufacturers to place this range of compressors directly on the shop floor, which further increases efficiency by reducing pressure drops.
