Atlas Copco expands its vacuum solutions
March 13,2015, Qingdao, China: Atlas Copco introduces an innovative, intelligent vacuum pump with its leading Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology, which has taken vacuum pump design to a new level.
A state-of-the-art technology, variable speed drive (VSD) and innovative motor design combine to produce a leap forward in efficiency of GHS VSD+, to save around 50% of the energy consumption and dramatically reduce lifecycle costs. Its market-leading oil retention means that the quality of the exhausted air is optimal, which will help to reduce environmental impact. It also avoids oil spills on the factory floor, which commonly occurs with conventional oil-lubricated pumps.
GHS VSD+ offers a very low noise level, around half that of comparable technologies. With a compact design, everything of GHS VSD+ is delivered in a single, neat enclosure, which contributes to its smallest footprints on the market, and easier maintenance.
Besides the new GHS VSD+, Atlas Copco currently offers a range of vacuum solutions, including GVD 0.7-28 series of small 2-stage oil-sealed rotary vane pump, GVD 40-275 series of 2-stage oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps, ZRS 250-4200 series mechanical booster pumps and GLS 250-500 series of rotary piston pumps, to support the specific vacuum needs of customers across a range of markets, and many common vacuum applications.
“Based on the advanced screw technology developed in the past 60 years, Atlas Copco is one of the first groups to introduce the high efficiency and reliability screw technology to the vacuum pump market all of the world.” said Eva Yang, Business Line Manager of Atlas Copco Utility Vacuum Division, “GHS VSD+ represents a real leap forward in the vacuum industry, and also lives up to our commitment to innovation and ‘Sustainable Productivity’.”
