PNC Inc. Purchases GA 75 VSD FF from Atlas Copco

Jul 14, 2016

PNC Inc. recently made another investment in its pursuit to be as energy efficient as possible: the GA 75 VSD FF, 100 HP compressor. This machine is efficient in that not only is it able to manage its own workflow, but in the fact that it will pay for itself in about five years through savings in electricity ($25,000 per year). These savings will, of course, be passed on to PNC’s customers. This purchase stands as yet another testament to their commitment to the make-in-USA philosophy to bolster quality while still doing their best to keep costs down for customers—further incentivizing those people to buy products made here as opposed to overseas.

The VSD (Variable Speed Drive) system this particular compressor utilizes is able to be more energy efficient by controlling the voltage and current to alter the speed and torque of the DC motor, In the event that the facility requires more flow, it will be automatically assisted by (2) 30 HP compressors. As a result, a VSD can give the same power output previously generated while reducing power usage. This differs from a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) in a few subtle but important ways. The most important of these is VFD can only be used on AC motors, making it less versatile than a VSD system.

Another efficiency-related aspect of this compressor is that it essentially replaced five machines and consolidates all of their tasks into one saving space, maintenance time and cost. Said PNC Inc. President Sam Sangani, “We’re very proud to be on the cutting of our industry not only with the products we manufacture but also with the technology we employ in the process.”

About PNC Inc.

PNC Inc. has also made numerous other purchased geared toward energy and resource conservation. These include the selective wave solder and aqueous cleaner in their state of the art assembly department—both of which are specifically engineered to use only the resources necessary and keep wastage to a minimum. In addition, there have also been small additions made throughout their facilities such as LCD displays to further monitor and minimize energy consumption.
