Customer benefits of the GA series
- Advanced monitoring system – Most production processes create fluctuating levels of demand. This creates energy waste in low air demand periods. Using the Elektronikon® unit controller, you can manually or automatically switch between two different setpoints to optimize energy and reduce cost.In addition, the sophisticated algorithm runs the drive motor only when needed. As the desired setpoint is maintained while the drive motor’s run time is minimized, energy consumption is kept to a minimum.
- Variable Speed Drive – Over 80% of a compressor’s lifecycle cost is taken up by the energy it consumes. The generation of compressed air can account for more than 40% of a plant’s total electricity bill. To cut your energy costs we’ve pioneered in Variable Speed Drive (VSD) Technology in the compressed air industry. Atlas Copco’s VSD technology closely follows the air demand by automatically adjusting the motor speed. This results in energy savings of up to 35%.
- Recover your energy – Our oil injected compressors use an integrated energy recovery system. It recovers up to 78% of the energy from the motor and the element oil circuit. Through efficient usage of the recovered energy, you generate important energy cost savings and a high return on investment.
- Advanced control and monitoring –It’s important to know the status of your compressed air system. You want to achieve optimal efficiency and maximum availability. With SMARTLINK you can monitor your compressed air installation. Monitoring your system not only saves you money, but also avoids breakdowns and production losses.
