Atlas Copco’s ZH 1000-3150 oil-free centrifugal air compressor is designed to meet the needs of the air separation industry for a larger centrifugal air compressor delivered in a standard package. The most compact air compressor in its range, the virtually silent ZH 1000-3150 provides the optimum combination of high flow and low energy consumption.
The ZH 1000-3150 is an all-in-one oil-free air compressor; all elements including internal piping, coolers, motor, lubrication, inlet guide vanes and control system are supplied in a standard package in a built-to-last design. Stainless steel cores minimize corrosion and increase operating lifetime. Installation is simple due to its integrated package design, and commissioning is quick. Optional features allow customization to a specific production environment.
The unique design of the ZH 1000-3150 allows a turndown of over 25 per cent before blow-off, maximizing energy savings and minimizing operating costs. Standard inlet guide vanes save up to 9 per cent more energy at reduced flows compared to many competitive units. Efficient cooling increases both reliability and energy efficiency and maximizes thermal transfer.
The ZH 1000-3150 works together with the Atlas Copco’s new Optimizer 4.0 central controller. It enables a compressed air system to be optimized through selection of the most efficient combination of machines, such as compressors, dryers, filters, energy recovery systems, air receivers, coolers and boosters.
