New addition to vacuum pump range

04 May 2016

Adding to its GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps, Atlas Copco has introduced a new model offering power of up to 1900m3/h.

Incorporating variable speed drive (VSD) technology to keep power closely aligned with fluctuating production demand, the GHS VSD+ range is said to deliver energy savings of up to 50% compared with conventional fixed-speed vacuum pumps. In addition it offers plug-and-play simplicity, advanced control features and lower-than-average noise levels. 

The GHS 1300–1900 VSD+ is an oil-sealed rotary screw vacuum pump with a range of 1300 to 1900m3/h and an ultimate pressure of 0.35mbar(a). However, its footprint is less than 2.3m3, enabling easy installation without taking up valuable floor space. 

Alongside a clear and detailed front-panel display, SmartLink connectivity is available as an option, which provides users with greater insight and control into the machine’s operational performance. The vacuum pump also has Atlas Copco’s Elektronikon for state-of-the-art monitoring, enabling full control to enhance energy savings. 

Optional water-cooled versions are available, with an integrated energy recovery system that could recover up to 100% of the used energy as hot water (90°C), which can be used for process requirements. 

The GHS 1300–1900 VSD+ is suitable for centralised vacuum systems, glass bottle manufacture and canning, as well as many other applications.
