April 2024


With the GA 11-30 FLX, Atlas Copco Compressors has unveiled the first dual-speed compressor in the world. Situated halfway between compressors with variable speed drives (VSD) and fixed-speed compressors, the GA FLX offers compressed air consumers a third choice. More than conventional fixed speed compressors, the start-up peak, unload power, and transient losses are much reduced by the dual-speed technology.  The GA FLX is therefore the most energy-efficient fixed-speed compressor in the lineup, using up to 20% less energy.


The GA 11-30 FLX was designed by Atlas Copco in response to the growing market need for more energy-efficient goods. The market is now more than ever aware of the financial advantages of a more sustainable product that may provide significant energy savings while minimizing environmental effect because of the energy crisis that occurred during the winter of 2022.


Compared to conventional fixed-speed compressors, its dual-speed drive train and motor result in much reduced start-up peak, unload power, and transient losses. This compressor lowers the environmental effect and global impact since it uses up to 20% less energy, and compressors utilize up to 5% of energy globally. Furthermore, the drive train set of the GA 11-30 may be positioned vertically, which reduces the compressor's footprint and maximises available space.


"At Atlas Copco Compressors, we are dedicated to shaping a more sustainable world through innovation," says Ben John, Business Line Manager, Industrial Air. Our dedication to satisfy client requests for more energy-efficient compressor solutions is shown by the GA 11-30 FLX.


The GA 11-30 FLX operates more sustainably by utilizing its power to its fullest potential to provide as much air as possible at all set pressures, therefore using energy more effectively. What distinguishes this compressor so much is its capacity to provide ideal flow at all pressures.
