Atlas Copco Compressors Introduces New GVS Oil-Sealed Rotary Screw Vacuum Package
Atlas Copco Compressors has introduced a new GVS oil-sealed rotary screw vacuum system – the company’s first packaged vacuum system for “rough vacuum” operations between 29.9 in-HgV and 15 in-HgV. The screw element technology, developed through Atlas Copco’s compressor technique business, is a time-tested design, offering superior, reliable performance at the lowest energy cost.
“Our expansion into vacuum products is a natural fit for Atlas Copco,” said Robert Eshelman, vice president, Industrial Air Division, Atlas Copco Compressors. “By extending our proven oil-sealed rotary screw compressor technology to the vacuum, we can now offer our customers an exceptional vacuum system alternative.”
The new GVS is fitted with a modulating valve at the pump inlet, allowing capacity to match demand, while minimizing vacuum-level fluctuations and operating at the lowest possible energy point. The GVS can be installed near the point of use, due to its quiet operation, or alternately, as part of a centralized vacuum system in a dedicated utility room.
The new Atlas Copco GVS is being designed and manufactured in the United States.
