Hybrid Permanent Magnet motor provides significant energy savings

Ingersoll Rand’s proprietary HPM motor is an IE5, IP66 rated unit that is designed for maximum efficiency and reliability. Featuring a compact design that is 30% smaller than conventional variable frequency motors, The GDK HPM motor can be directly connected to the male rotor of a compressor’s airend. This unique configuration eliminates many of the drive train losses experienced in conventional compressor design, significantly reducing energy consumption. Combined with a detachable stator winding, the unit streamlines maintenance and service, helping to further reduce costs.

Total control delivers maximum productivity

The GDK Series compressors utilize the state-of-the-art LE-120 intelligent touch screen controller. The LE-120 provides simple, user friendly control of the compressed air system. Continuous monitoring of critical components, combined with “smart” control, allows the LE-120 to optimize compressor operation to meet downstream compressed air demand. This allows the GDK Series to provide reliable operation that delivers stable and consistent pressure; maximizing productivity and helping to reduce system downtime in even the most demanding industrial applications.
