Redesigned screw compressor range

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Atlas Copco Compressors has redesigned its smallest oil injected screw compressor range, the GA 5-11/GA 5-15 kW variable speed drive.

According to Atlas, the new range delivers greater performance, workplace flexibility, component reliability and significant energy savings.

The company says the new range's features include a new generation compression element, an 8% increase in air delivery, noise levels down to 60dB(A), new VSD voltage variants, an extended operating range, a new Elektronikon® controller, and an additional tank-mounted GA 15 VSD model.

Atlas' engineers have aimed to lower specific energy requirements by up to 8%, by the introduction of a new screw compressor element. And the company adds that free air delivery has also been increased by up to 8%.

For applications where the compressed air demand fluctuates, the control algorithms of Atlas' variable speed drive are designed to create average energy savings of up to 35%. The entire GA 5-15 VSD range has been equipped with new saver cycles on both fan and dryer.

Operating noise levels start from 60dB(A) and the compressor element in the redesigned GA range has been designed for optimal performance and long service life.
