Atlas Copco expands its vacuum range

It includes two-stage oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps, vacuum booster pumps, piston pumps, liquid ring pumps and steam ejectors.

The portfolio can be adapted for use in mining, cement, paper, refineries and food, as well as industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, refrigeration, glass, bottling, canning and woodworking.

In early 2015 a new intelligent vacuum pump will be introduced - the GHS VSD+ - which incorporates variable speed drive and has been designed to deliver peak performance at operating pressures commonly found in industrial applications.

Other advantages include energy savings of up to 50 %, quiet operation and reduced environmental impact.
