Ultima contributes to bottom line cost savings in many ways. Not only do they deliver outstanding efficiency and significantly lower lifecycle costs, the Ultima requires on average, 3.4 m³ less space (or up to 37% less floor space) than a conventional two-stage oil-free compressor. This allows easy installation in the smallest possible space - not only a benefit where space is limited - it also translates into property cost saving.
With each compression stage being driven by individual, highly efficient, permanent magnetic motors with two separate tairends - unlike traditional two-stage compression technology - the on-board controller perfectly and intelligently matches demand efficiency by independently controlling the speed of each stage.
By varying the speed of the oil-free compressor, the Ultima achieves the highest levels of productivity across the full turndown range.
This allows the compressor to use 13% less power than traditional technology equating to an average saving of up to €8,000* per annum.

Using a closed loop water cooling system to cool all major components, and with separate water cooling for the inter and after coolers, Ultima compressors offer the highest outputs for heat recovery - approximately 10% more than comparable compressors on the market. Ultima also offers the option of air-cooling.
Where the majority of oil-free airends on the market quickly succumb to performance deterioration, Ultima utilises German engineered and manufactured airends incorporating a special coating to ensure life-long protection of the compressor and maximum efficiency.
Fitted with an updated GD Pilot TS touch screen controller, Ultima provides the ability to monitor the installation's operational parameters, through a multilingual and user-friendly control system, which is essential for protecting your investment and lowering running costs.
All functions are clearly structured in five main menus and are intuitively visual. 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 the efficiency.
