Meet the new 'ZR' rotary oil-free screw air compressor

Setting the standard in energy efficiency, quality and reliability

The shortest route to superior productivity is to maximise output while using the minimum amount of inputs. The Atlas Copco ZR 90 - 160 VSD+ compressor series is focused on delivering the greatest volume of 100% guaranteed oil-free compressed air while using the least amount of electrical input energy and with minimal amounts of maintenance intervention.

And not just today, but day after day, year after year, with built-in reliability and durability to ensure very long, trouble-free service life.

Highest reliability

For over 50 years, Atlas Copco Z compressors have set the benchmark for durability. They are built using long-standing internal engineering practices, and are designed and manufactured according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000 & OHSAS 18001. The high-end ZRVSD+ uses time-proven state-of-the-art screw technology, in-house designed and manufactured electric motors and inverters and provides you with the highest reliability and durability.

100% oil-free compressed air

The ZR 90 - 160 VSD+ offers you 100% pure, clean air that complies with ISO 8573-1 CLASS 0 oil (2010) certification. This means zero risk of contamination of compressed air; zero risk of damage to your products; and zero risk of damaging your company’s hard-won professional reputation.

Maximum energy efficiency

The ZR’s superior oil-free screw elements provide the optimum combination of high Free Air Delivery (FAD) with the lowest energy consumption. Ample sized cooling, low pressure drops and an extremely efficient drive train including motor and inverter result in the highest compressor package efficiency.

The most complete package

With the ZR compressor, Atlas Copco provides a superior solution without hidden costs. The totally integrated, ready-to-use package includes internal piping, coolers, motor, lubrication and control system. The Full Feature version even integrates an IMD or IMDG adsorption dryer to deliver dry compressed air for even the most sensitive applications with virtually no dryer energy consumption. Installation is fault-free, commissioning time is short and no external instrument air is required. You simply plug and run.
