Atlas Copco's Oil-free Air division announced today the latest offering in the 110-160kW (150-200 hp) category - the GA FIT. To meet diverse market needs, the entry-level GA FIT range provides industry-leading air compressor technology for customers in need of standard efficiency levels.
With the addition of the GA FIT, the award-winning GA range of air compressors now encompasses four option levels in order to provide additional customization for all types of users.
"We conducted in-depth conversations with our customers and found there was a gap in the market," said Paul Humphreys, vice president of communications and branding, Atlas Copco Compressors LLC. "The GA FIT was tailored for this market with one goal - to provide outstanding value to our customers in these tough economic times."
Ensuring a long and trouble-free life at the lowest possible cost, the GA FIT utilizes the latest generation of Atlas Copco's oil-injected screw element in order to provide reliable service in the harshest environments, even in ambient temperatures up to 115°F /46°C. The GA FIT can be customized with several popular options to ensure the facility's compressed air needs are met in the smallest, most reliable and efficient package.
Completing Atlas Copco's GA 110-160 range are the GA Standard, GA +, and GA VSD (variable speed drive) versions.
