Company has extended the GA VSD+ range of oil-injected rotary screw compressors through 50 hp (37 kW). This range reduces energy consumption by up to 50% and increases free air delivery by up to 13%, compared to a traditional load/unload compressor of the same type. This extension creates a condensation prevention cycle for variable speed drive compressors. Integrated with the Elektronikon® controller, the cycle prevents condensation in compression oil, even in extremely low load conditions. With a motor that exceeds the latest NEMA Premium efficiency requirements, the range features a motor and drive train that share a single drive shaft and are vertically aligned, reducing the total footprint by up to 55%, compared to other compressors.
