VS132 lubricated screw compressor

ESM 30e-45e & 30-132 and VS 30-132 compressors

Lubricated Rotary Screw Compressors (30 - 132 kW)

The perfect fit to maximise productivity

The ESM(e) / VS 30-132 series is specifically designed to meet the demands for continuous 24-hour use and absolute uptime, as required in critical industrial processes. The range comprises of many different models, ranging from 30 up to 132kW, including variable speed options and the ability to recover the energy lost in heat from the compressor, with a heat recovery option.

Gardner Denver has unveiled its newest oil-lubricated compressors for its leading ESM / VS Series range, offering best-in-class efficiency.

Available in 90 kW, 110 kW and 132 kW units, the new compressors deliver efficiency improvements of up to 6 per cent when compared with previous models, plus a 7 per cent higher flow rate. The new compressors are available in both fixed and regulated speeds – which can help reduce a system’s total cost of ownership significantly – as well as air-cooled and water-cooled options.

A perfectly matched design of motor, direct drive & air end

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.

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 semi integrated airend design with integrated oil filter and oil regulation valve means fewer external components and pipework, taking less physical space, eliminating the risk of leakage and ease the maintenance.

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.

Integrated heat recovery to save even more energy

The compressors are available with highly efficient heat recovery systems, which can be factory fitted or are available as retrofit kits comprising all the necessary pipe-work and fittings.

Life Cycle Solutions

Optimised cooling system

The radial fan concept represents quiet and efficient operation. Additionally, peripheral speed means low noise and the power consumption is up to 50 percent 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. Also, the oversized after coolers used in the ESM / VS 30-132 series ensure an optimum cooling and discharge temperature.
