VSD Technology, Energy Efficiency

The Atlas Copco GA VSD. This variable speed drive (VSD) air compressor offers a constant supply of compressed air, regardless of fluctuating demands.

The benefits of variable speed drive (VSD) are widely recognized. VSD compressors simply measure the system pressure and maintain a constant delivery pressure within a narrow pressure band (about +/- 1.5 psi. By varying the speed of the drive motor, the VSD can supply the exact air capacity required so, as the air demand decreases, the VSD will lower the air delivery and electrical power consumption. This leads to greater energy savings, as every 2 psi reduction yields a 1% decrease in power consumption. Integrated VSD packages offer benefits beyond energy savings, including less regular maintenance, lower risk of current damage and longer lasting machinery.

This is the key feature of the GA VSD - reducing energy consumption to a minimum, while meeting the customer's exact needs.
