Atlas Copco’s GHS VSD+ screw vacuum pumps extended to 1900 m³/h

The GHS 350-900 VSD+ vacuum pumps introduced by Atlas Copco in April 2015 are now available in an extended 1300-1900 m³/h range designed to boost production.

An all-in-one vacuum pump with efficient variable speed drive (VSD) technology, easy to install plug-and-play design and display and connectivity features providing controllability, the Atlas Copco GHS VSD+ Series has now added the GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ version, offering a range of 1300–1900 m³/h with an ultimate pressure of 0.35 mbar(a) as well as VSD providing the ability to keep up with fluctuating production demands for vacuum.

Key features and benefits of the GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ rotary screw vacuum pumps include plug-and-play design with a footprint of less than 2.3m³, enabling easy installation without taking up valuable floor space at the production facility; average energy savings of up to 50 per cent compared to alternative technologies; market-leading low noise operation; SMARTLINK connectivity option for maximum uptime; and clear and detailed colour display putting control in the user’s hands. 

The new extended vacuum pumps range also comes with Atlas Copco’s Elektronikon for state-of-the-art monitoring, enabling full control for greater energy savings. A remote monitoring option allows easy integration of Elektronikon with plant management systems.

The GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ rotary screw vacuum pumps are also available in optional water cooled versions featuring an integrated energy recovery system to potentially recover up to 100 per cent of the used energy as hot water (90°C), which can be used in the production process to save energy and achieve additional savings. 

The new vacuum pumps also contribute to a cleaner working environment for employee wellbeing, with their market-leading oil retention capacity ensuring the quality of the exhausted air is optimal. Oil spills are also avoided on the factory floor, which commonly occur with conventional oil-lubricated pumps. 

The plug-and-play design of the GHS VSD+ Series assures simple and fast installation that saves time and space. 

The GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ variable speed drive vacuum pump is available in a turbo version to meet any requirement for fast evacuation times, enabling faster cycle times and more production. Recommended for meat, cheese and chicken packaging, as well as cooling applications, the turbo version for fast cycling machines is available for most sizes of the GHS VSD+ range and comes with upgraded motors and control system.

For wet applications such as plastics, clay moulding and drying pipelines, customers can choose the GHS VSD+ Humid version, which is suitable for high water content duties (up to 100 per cent). 

Atlas Copco’s GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ variable speed drive vacuum pumps are suitable for centralised vacuum systems, glass bottle manufacturing and canning among many more applications. A self-assessment can be performed with the Utility Vacuum App available for free in the App Store and Google Play Store.
