Atlas Copco Compressors Introduces New GVS Oil-Sealed Rotary Screw Vacuum Package

2013-03-04

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.

The GVS delivers capacities between 365 to 3,000 cfm, making it the ideal machine for applications in the electronics, woodworking, bottling and canning, packaging, printing and plastics industries. It is especially suitable for plants that would like to achieve significant energy and maintenance savings by replacing multiple remote vacuum pumps with a centralized system.

 “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.
