GHS VSD+ range of screw vacuum pumps extended to 1900 m³/h

Atlas Copco’s GHS 350-900 VSD+, introduced in April 2015, offers an all-in-one vacuum pump with efficient variable speed drive (VSD) technology, easy to install plug-and-play design and display and connectivity features that provide controllability. Now the GHS 1300–1900 VSD+ vacuum pump is available, offering a range of 1300–1900 m3/h with an ultimate pressure of 0.35 mbar(a) and with VSD providing the ability to keep up with fluctuating production demands for vacuum.


The GHS 1300–1900 VSD+ is a plug-and-play vacuum pump with a footprint of less than 2.3 m3, enabling easy installation without taking up valuable floor space at the production facility. 

The VSD offers average energy savings of up to 50% compared to alternative technologies, and features market leading noise levels. The GHS VSD+ comes delivered with the SMARTLINK connectivity option for maximum uptime, while a clear and detailed color display puts the control in the user’s hands. The vacuum pump also has Atlas Copco’s Elektronikon® for state-of-the-art monitoring, enabling full control that leads to energy savings. Elektronikon® can integrate easily to plant management systems thanks to a remote monitoring option. 

Optional water cooled versions are available (integrated energy recovery system) which could recover up to 100% of the used energy as hot water (90 °C) which customers can use in their process and save additional money and energy sources such as natural gas and heating oil. 

Its market-leading oil retention means that the quality of the exhausted air is optimal, which contributes to employee well-being (as this air is often breathed). It also avoids oil spills on the factory floor, which commonly occurs with conventional oil-lubricated pumps. The result is a significantly cleaner working environment.  

Due to its plug & play design the GHS VSD+ Series assures an easy and fast installation which saves time and space. Everything required is delivered as a complete package.
