Atlas Copco Turns Its Hand To Vacuum Pumps

02 November 2012

With the launch of its new GV oil- sealed rotary screw vacuum pump system, suitable for ‘rough vacuum’ between 0.5mbar and 500mbar, Atlas Copco has applied its expertise in air compressors to vacuum pump technology.

There are many synergies between compressed air and vacuum technology, which enable Atlas Copco to design and manufacture its own vacuum pump systems with the same quality and reliability as those of its compressors.

At the heart of the new GV vacuum pump is Atlas Copco’s expertise in the design and manufacture of reliable screw elements. In the 0.5mbar to 500mbar operating pressure range, oil-sealed rotary screw technology offers the best performance at the lowest energy cost.

Thanks to its modulating valve, fitted at the pump inlet, the capacity of the pump can be matched to actual demand. This not only minimizes the system’s vacuum level fluctuations, but also operates the pump at the lowest possible energy point. Another benefit is that due to this feature the vacuum pump also has to stop and start less frequently, leading to less wear and maintenance and therefore increased reliability.
