Rotary screw compressors improve performance by 5%

A range of oil-injected rotary screw compressors, designated the GA 90+-160 series, has been introduced by Atlas Copco. Offering increased productivity levels and reduced operating costs, the company claims that the enhanced design of the packaging improves performance by up to 5% and provides for increased availability and durability compared with the previous generation. 

The new GA 90+-160 oil-injected rotary screw compressor range includes a wide range of energy savings features including an IE3 motor, no-loss water separator drain, energy recovery module and in-built dryers. The unique integrated dryer concept delivers clean, dry air to improve reliability and increase energy savings. With a reduced floor space, installation costs are also considerably reduced.

“At Atlas Copco, we innovate to maximise value for our customers. Efficiency is in our DNA and lowering energy costs is our primary focus. However, there is also much more we can offer with the new GA 90+-160 range including enhanced serviceability, ease of installation, integration, and monitoring, which all provide tangible benefits to end users.” says Chris Lybaert, President, Atlas Copco Oil-free Air division.

With a high-cooling capacity, the latest GA air compressors are designed to perform in demanding operating conditions, including in temperatures up to 55°C/ 131°F. With its intelligent control and monitoring systems, Elektronikon® and SmartLink®, the new range offers many possibilities to further optimise compressor operation and increase savings. To help reduce operating costs it also offers longer service intervals and reduced maintenance time.

“In today’s industrial environment, our customers are looking for solutions that improve sustainability, efficiency and productivity, while lowering operational risk. We are very proud to add this new GA 90+-160 range to our offering, which, with its combination of improved energy savings and reduced CO2 emissions, ensures that our drive for efficiency continues.” Says Conrad Latham, Vice President Marketing, Atlas Copco Oil-free Air division.
