Industrial air compressors are mechanical devices that convert different types of power into potential energy. This energy is pressurized air also known as compressed air. There are many methods for compressing air, but each method forces air into a tank that stores the air at increasing pressures.
Atlas Copco Compressors has introduced proprietary drive technology for oil-injected screw compressors with variable speed drive in the 50-125 hp range. Robust, efficient and reliable, the Neos drive is specifically designed to meet the demands of heavy duty air compressor applications.
“The Neos drive is the result of collaboration between Atlas Copco and our long-time electronics providers, combining years of experience and knowledge of energy-efficient compressor technology,” said Robert Eshelman, vice president, Industrial Air Division, Atlas Copco Compressors. “Since we introduced the first variable speed drive compressor in 1994, we have continued our legacy of innovation with the development of this proprietary drive technology.”
