These lubricated rotary screw compressors also deliver reliable performance. Take advantage of the various types of screw compressors available so that you can get an air solution that closely matches your requirements.
Energy Saving Compressor Solutions
One of the most attractive benefits of Atlas Copco compressors are their energy efficiency. Our larger compressors are all equipped with the Elektronikon® panel, minimizing energy costs through smart technology. These reductions in energy costs add up over time, allowing your business to work effectively and efficiently. We also have a basic controller on our smaller versions, allowing you smart solutions independent of your company size.
How does the energy efficiency of these lubricated rotary screw compressors look in action? Atlas Copco’s VSD⁺ technology closely follows the air demand by automatically adjusting the motor speed to match the compressed air supply to the demand. This automatic adjustment is constantly optimizing so that the compressor uses only the energy needed at any given moment — without hurting performance. There’s no need for manual intervention, which allows your team members to do their work without worrying about efficiency.
Combined with the innovative patented iPM (interior Permanent Magnet) motor (IE4), the GA VSD⁺ achieves average energy savings of 50%. This reduces the total lifecycle costs of the compressor up to 37% on average. There are significant short-term energy savings and valuable reductions in lifecycle costs when you choose Atlas Copco compressors. Any business operating on an industrial scale can access and enjoy value when they choose Atlas Copco compressors.
On top of energy savings up to 50%, the GA VSD⁺ realizes a Free Air Delivery (FAD) increase of up to 12% for improved efficiency and performance. Atlas Screw compressors are your best option when looking to increase performance, optimize efficiency and secure long-term savings.
Common Uses for Atlas Copco Screw Compressors
In large industrial operations, workers often need huge volumes of high-pressure air to power their tools. Tools that run on high-pressure air might include impact wrenches, jackhammers and others. When you think about Atlas Copco compressors and the efficiency they can bring to large operations, almost any industrial company operating at scale can take advantage of these lubricated rotary screw compressors.
Common applications for these screw compressors include working the marine, mining, automotive, power generation, textile, chemical/petrochemical and pulp/paper industries — plus others. Specific Atlas Copco screw compressor success stories include:
- A solar panel company that used an Atlas Copco screw compressor to optimize performance and improve efficiency
- A manufacturing plant that used Atlas Copco screw compressors to achieve a 30% reduction in energy costs
- A mining company that saves thousands a year by using Atlas Copco screw compressors
Small improvements in energy efficiency may not seem like much at first glance. But, when your industrial company is operating at scale, these small reductions in energy use add up to significant savings over time. At Fluid Aire Dynamics, we offer access to Atlas Copco compressors and other tools that help large-scale industrial operations do their best work while enjoying savings.
