Atlas Copco's nitrogen, vacuum, compressed air systems on showAt Pro2Pac 2015, Atlas Copco Compressors will be showcasing its efficient and sustainably productive on-site nitrogen generators, innovative new vacuum pumps and compressed air systems for the food and beverage packaging industry.

A highlight of the stand will be the NGP Series nitrogen generators, which are designed to provide a cost-effective, reliable and secure supply of on-site nitrogen. The NGP generator’s working principle is based on Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology, which entails carbon molecular sieves that separate oxygen from nitrogen. The NGP series is therefore suited to a wide range of applications including food and beverage storage and packaging.

Visitors will also get the chance to learn about Atlas Copco’s soon-to-be-launched GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps. The GHS VSD+ series is a new range of highly efficient, intelligent vacuum pumps featuring variable speed drive (VSD) and an innovative motor design that combine to produce a leap forward in efficiency that reduces lifecycle costs. Based on the proven plug-and-play design principles of Atlas Copco’s compressors, the new GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps have been designed to deliver peak performance at common operating pressures in industrial applications.

Atlas Copco also offers air compressors for the packaging industry, including the space-saving GA VSD+, an oil-injected screw compressor with variable speed drive, driven by a permanent magnet motor. This innovation is the most important one since the invention of Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology by Atlas Copco 20 years ago. Thanks to the energy-savings of average 50 per cent that the GA VSD+ offers, this new compressor has helped many customers reduce their energy costs ever since its introduction.

Visitors to Stand S2344 will also be able to hear about Atlas Copco’s oil-free compressed air products. With a wide variety of food and drink processing operations relying on the supply of clean, dry compressed air; Atlas Copco’s Class 0 certified compressors are guaranteed to ensure zero risk of oil contamination within the compressed air supply to sensitive process procedures and applications where air comes into contact with food.
