Lubricated Rotary Screw Compressors (160 - 290 kW)
The perfect fit to maximise productivity
Premium compressor manufacturer Gardner Denver has launched a new range of energy efficient 160 kW to 250 kW oil-injected, screw air compressors to enhance its existing range of GD machines.
The new compressors, 160, 200, 250 and the 290, are available in both fixed speed (ESM) and variable speed (VS) models. Each one is capable of delivering reliable and efficient compressed air, with pressures ranging from 5 bar to 13 bar, and suitable for a wide variety of industrial applications.
The ESM / VS 160-290 series is specifically designed to meet the demands of continuous 24-hour use and absolute uptime, as required in critical industrial processes.
Innovative design delivers great benefits:
At just 6.2 m2 for both the fixed and variable speed compressors, all units have a small footprint, making them ideal for installations where space is at a premium. The low speed airend, produced in Gardner Denver's new 'Centre of Excellence' in Germany, and radial fans with inverter options, ensure that the machines run quietly, with low noise levels starting from 76 dB (A) on the ESM160 model.
The efficient motor/drive/air-end combination are designed to reduce the specific power, which benefits you in the form of energy cost savings. Additionally, Gardner Denver is using TEFC IP55, high efficiency motors.
The design of the Gardner Denver airends makes operation reliable and maintenance easy ensuring minimal downtime. The high-output compression element with slow rotational speed reduces energy costs. In addition, the innovative design of the fail safe shaft seal, integrated oil filter and oil regulation valve, ensures external hoses are reduced to a minimum to guarantee the highest levels of quality and reliability are achieved.
The ESD/ESG series is easy to service. Large double doors provide easy access to all service points. All maintenance can be completed from the front of the compressor.
Superb flexibility comes as standard with the VS Series. With up to 80% regulation range, the VS Series features the market's quickest and widest response to air demand changes.
Your benefits during varying air demand:
The radial fan concept represents quiet and efficient operation. Additionally, peripheral speed means low noise and the power consumption is up to 50% lower than a comparable axial fan. Another advantage is the high residual thrust (stable curve) that allows the use of exhaust ducting with a pressure drop of up to 130 Pa. The oversized after coolers used in the ESM / VS 160-290 series also ensure an optimum cooling and discharge temperature.
A unique synthetic lubricant designed specifically to maximise compressor efficiency and provide optimum lubricity.
The “GD Pilot TS” with its high resolution touch screen display is extremely user friendly and self-explanatory. All functions are clearly structured in five main menus and are visually intuitive. The multilingual “GD Pilot TS” control system ensures reliable operation and protects your investment by continuously monitoring the operational parameters, which is essential for reducing your running costs. With the ability to display detailed system analysis in the form of trend diagrams and graphs, operating parameters can be precisely set to maximise efficiency.
Compressed air systems typically comprise of multiple compressors delivering air to a common distribution system. The addition of the optional base load sequencing module will allow for the central control of up to four compressors matching the delivery to plant demand
The design of these packages assures the service points are readily accessible. The enclosure side doors are hinged and removable to allow complete access to all service points. The reduced number of moving parts also lowers maintenance costs.
