ANTWERP – ATLAS COPCO’s new GA range of oil-injected compressors offer the highest levels of reliability and energy efficiency.

Energy efficiency in the new GA range is achieved through, among other things, state-of-the-art compression elements based on Atlas Copco’s patented asymmetric rotor profiles, which drastically reduce volumetric losses. Through the optimization of oil injection, flow and temperature, the compression process is kept at the coolest possible temperature, thereby minimizing thermodynamic losses.

Other design features to further reduce energy consumption include the use of radial fans with VSD regulation, high-efficiency motors and no-loss drains. Extra energy-saving options such as an integrated energy recovery system and/or VSD for the main motor can provide even greater benefits.

Air quality is provided by two key elements: a highly-efficient oil removal system to give minimum residual oil content in the outlet air, and state-of-the-art refrigerant dryers that are available in both integrated and stand-alone versions. Finally, all components have been optimally integrated to reduce floor space and simplify connections.
