With the new GV oil-sealed rotary screw vacuum pump, Atlas Copco launches its first pump system for “rough vacuum” between 0.5 and 500 mbar. In this operating pressure range, oil-sealed rotary screw technology offers the best performance at the lowest energy cost. Thanks to modulating valve, fitted at the pump inlet, the capacity can be matched to the actual demand. This concept not only minimizes the system’s vacuum level fluctuations, but also operates the pump at the lowest possible energy point. The vacuum pump also has to stop/start less frequently, leading to less wear and maintenance and therefore increased reliability. The GV delivers capacities between 500 and 5000 m3/h, making it the ideal machine for many applications. From printing and packaging to plastics, bottling and canning, the delivers consistent and efficient vacuum. Thanks to its quiet operation, can be installed close to the point of use. But this technology also allows for remote installation as part of a centralized vacuum system.
