Why Independent Performance Verification is So Important
When you decide to buy a house, you don’t just take the homeowner’s word that the foundation is strong. The same should be true of compressed air equipment. While compressor manufacturers will always tell you their product is the best, how do you really know which piece of equipment is going to give you the performance you need when you need it the most?
CAGI’s Performance Verification Program uses a standardized method of presenting performance data and assures that accurate compressed air performance information is easily accessible both in print and online. This helps customers validate the performance claims of new, innovative technologies from participating companies and make the most informed decisions.
For example, the Atlas Copco GA VSD+ range of compact, oil-injected rotary screw compressors represents one of the most innovative changes to rotary screw technology since we launched the world’s first economical to manufacture variable speed drive compressor in 1994. It achieves better performances at full load than a comparable load/unload compressor, allowing customers in most industries to switch to a variable speed drive compressor for virtually any application and ultimately reducing energy costs and contributing to a more sustainable industry.Because of CAGI, you don’t have to just take our word for it. Instead, you can visit our website to download the CAGI Datasheet on the GA VSD+ and see for yourself.
CAGI has been providing a united voice for the compressed air and gas industry and serving as the leading source of manufacturer and product-neutral support for compressed air professionals for the past 100 years.
Atlas Copco is proud to participate in the Performance Verification Program and display CAGI’s standardized reporting forms on our website for a range of products from rotary screw compressors to refrigerant air dryers. To learn more, visit the Atlas Copco CAGI Datasheets page on our website.
