PROJECT: Unbeatable “Footprint” of the Atlas Copco GA55 VSD+
ACL Engineering were approached by a high pressure diecasting services provider, based in Hertfordshire, to assess their existing compressed air system and usage.
Following our initial survey we then carried out a one week data logging exercise to cover their different shift patterns and usage, with the superior output figures from the Atlas Copco VSD+ range 37 to 75kW we could have downsized from 75kW (existing) to our 45kW option, after discussion and future expansion plans the decision was made to go with the 55kW version which still offered exceptional savings on energy, small footprint and easy install dynamics
We installed a GA55VSD+P variable speed drive air compressor with a standalone FX dryer to support the new machine and back up machine with dry air.
The evening before commissioning, we were informed that the customer went into the plant room to inspect and expressed their concern that the machine looked too small, they were worried that it was nearly half the size of the previous machine, we explained the design concept of the drive train which results in the high output and small footprint, they were relieved…!
This equipment is now supported by the comprehensive Atlas Copco’s Guardian service package.
