Atlas Copco's new vacuum pump range offers 50 percent energy savings
13 September 2015
Atlas Copco's new GHS 350-900 VSD+ vacuum pump range offers average energy savings of 50 percent compared with conventional oil-sealed and dry vane units, as well as industry-leading low noise levels and oil retention.
The GHS 350-900 VSD+ range, generating nominal displacement of up to 900m3/h, incorporates state-of-the-art VSD technology that enables users to precisely adapt their vacuum generation requirements to match the demands of their process.
Coupled with an innovative motor design and inlet control valve, the new range sets new standards for energy efficiency in rough vacuum pumps.
Unlike fixed speed machines that react to variations in demand by switching on and off, the GHS VSD+ vacuum pump only delivers energy and performance when and where it is needed. If demand drops to half it only delivers half, and the power consumed is halved.The GHS VSD+ pump also offers a 50 percent reduction in noise levels (51 dBA).
From a design viewpoint, the new range is based on Atlas Copco’s proven compressors, and provides a fully wired, complete system in a single housing, with all access points for service on the same side. Due to its plug-and-play design the GHS VSD+ Series is easy and fast to install, which saves time and space. The footprint is one of the smallest on the market, being no larger than a standard pallet.
The new range offers energy recovery features on the larger models, which leads to minimal hot air carry-over in the workplace and air-conditioned production environments.
Its industry-leading oil retention performance means that the air produced from the discharge of the vacuum pump is of a higher quality. The GHS VSD+ also prevents oil spills on the factory floor, a common occurrence with conventional oil-lubricated pumps. The end result is a significantly cleaner working environment.
The GHS VSD+ range is equipped with Atlas Copco’s Elektronikon monitoring system and SMARTlink data monitoring. Elektronikon can integrate with the customer’s plant management system and control other vacuum pumps, helping with energy savings.
