Atlas Copco extends its revolutionary range
of GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps to 1900 m³/h

Atlas Copco has extended its portfolio of GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps with the launch of a new model offering power of up to 1900 m3/h while retaining the revolutionary level of energy efficiency that has been a hallmark of the range. The new GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ is built upon the success of the GHS 350-900 VSD+, which set a new benchmark for vacuum pumps when it was unveiled in 2015.

Incorporating variable speed drive (VSD) technology to keep power closely aligned with fluctuating production demand, the GHS VSD+ range delivers energy savings of up to 50% compared with conventional fixed-speed vacuum pumps. In addition it offers plug-and-play simplicity, advanced control features and lower-than-average noise levels.

The GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ is an oil-sealed rotary screw vacuum pump with a range of 1300 to 1900 m3/h and an ultimate pressure of 0.35 mbar(a). However, its footprint is less than 2.3 m3, enabling easy installation without taking up valuable floor space at a production facility. 

Alongside a clear and detailed front-panel display, SmartLink connectivity is available as an additional option, which provide users with greater insight and control into the machine's operational performance and thereby maximise uptime. The vacuum pump also boasts Atlas Copco's Elektronikon for state-of-the-art monitoring, enabling full control to enhance energy savings.

Optional water cooled versions are available, with an integrated energy recovery system that could recover up to 100% of the used energy as hot water (90°C), which can be used for process requirements to save on excess fuel usage. 

The vacuum pump's market-leading oil retention means that the quality of the exhausted air is optimal, which contributes to employee well-being and eradicates oil spills for a cleaner working environment.  

The GHS 1300-1900 VSD+ is suitable for centralised vacuum systems, glass bottle manufacture and canning, as well as many other applications.

The new vacuum pump is also available as a turbo version if fast evacuation times are needed. It enables faster cycle times for higher production and is ideal for meat, cheese and chicken packaging, as well as cooling.

For wet applications such as plastics, clay moulding and drying of pipelines, customers can choose the GHS VSD+ as a humid version.
