Atlas Copco to launch super-efficient VSD vacuum pump range
A new range of highly efficient vacuum pumps will be unveiled by Atlas Copco . Heralded as a quantum leap forward for vacuum technology, the GHS VSD+ series promises energy savings of around 50% compared with conventional vacuum pumps.
The GHS 350-900 VSD+ range, generating nominal displacement of up to 900m3/h, incorporates state-of-the-art variable speed drive technology, which enables vacuum generation to adapt precisely to the user’s requirements as part of a central supply system. Coupled with an innovative motor design, the new range sets new standards for energy efficiency of vacuum pumps, resulting in a dramatic reduction in the total cost of ownership.
Benchmarked against oil-sealed and dry vane vacuum pumps, the GHS VSD+ pumps offer improved performance and a 50% reduction in noise levels.
Based on the well-known and durable plug-and-play design principles of Atlas Copco compressors, these vacuum pumps have been designed by vacuum engineers to deliver peak performance at operating pressures commonly found in industrial applications. The new GHS-VSD+ vacuum pumps are visually based on Atlas Copco’s well-known compressor design, with all of the components cleanly integrated into a single housing.
