ESM 23 Compressor

Lubricated Rotary Screw Compressors (22-30kW)

The perfect fit to maximise productivity

The growing industrial demand for compressed air requires compressor manufacturers to provide more reliable, economic and versatile compressors within a small footprint Gardner Denver addresses these requirements, with the introduction of the new ESM 23-29 / VS 23-29 Series.

Key Benefits

Advanced Design

  • Absolute reliability
  • Customized for flexibility
  • Small footprint
  • Innovative Gardner Denver airend design
  • Integrated heat recovery systems


Small Installation foot print

All models ESM / VS 23-29 are available with an integrated dryer. This option comes complete with a dryer and water separator, both fitted with zero loss drains, to eliminate expensive air loss and maximise energy efficiency. Thanks to ESD control the dryer only use energy when the system actually needs compressed air unlike conventional dryers which continue to consume energy even when the system is off load.

Premium efficiency air end

The high output compression element with slow rotational speed reduces energy costs. In addition to this, the innovative design of the 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 VS Variable speed compressor - one smart solution

The VS compressor is an efficient and versatile solution even for the most demanding industrial applications and carries all of the Gardner Denver features and benefits associated with reliable, easy to use operations and high efficiency.
