Instruction book

This instruction book describes how to handle the machines to ensure safe operation, optimum efficiency and long service life.
Read this book before putting the machine into operation to ensure correct handling, operation and proper maintenance from
the beginning. The maintenance schedule comprises measures for keeping the machine in good condition.
Keep the book available for the operator and make sure that the machine is operated and that maintenance is carried out
according to the instructions. Record all operating data, maintenance performed, etc. in an operator's logbook available from
Atlas Copco. Follow all relevant safety precautions, including those mentioned on the cover of this book.
Repairs must be carried out by trained personnel from Atlas Copco who can be contacted for any further information.
In all correspondence always mention the type and the serial number, shown on the data plate.
For all data not mentioned in the text, see sections "Preventive maintenance schedule" and "Principal data".

1.5 Air dryer (Fig. 1.7)

GA Full-feature and GA Standard Pack with integrated dryer


are provided with a dryer which removes moisture from the
compressed air.

1.5.1 Compressed air circuit

Compressed air enters heat exchanger (33) and is cooled by


the outgoing, dried air. Moisture in the incoming air starts to
condense. The air then flows through heat exchanger/
evaporator (31) where the refrigerant evaporates causing the
air to be further cooled to close to the evaporating temperature
of the refrigerant. More water in the air condenses. The cold
air then flows through separator (25) where all the condensate
is separated from the air. The is automatically drained. The
cold, dried air flows through heat exchanger (33), where it is
warmed up by the incoming air.

1.5.2 Refrigerant circuit

Compressor (38) delivers high-pressure refrigerant gas which


flows through condenser (29) where most of the refrigerant
condenses. The liquid flows through liquid refrigerant dryer/
filter (32) to capillary tube (27). The refrigerant leaves the
capillary tube at evaporating pressure. The refrigerant enters
evaporator (31) where it withdraws heat from the compressed
air by further evaporation at constant pressure. The heated
refrigerant leaves the evaporator and is sucked in by the
compressor.

By-pass valve (30) regulates the refrigerant flow. Fan (37) is


switched on or off by switch (39) depending on the loading
degree of the refrigerant circuit.

The compressor motor has a built-in thermic protection. In


case the compressor motor stops after tripping of the thermic
protection, it may take up to 2 hours to cool down the motor
windings.

For overhauling or carrying out preventive maintenance,
service kits are available. See section 4.6. Atlas Copco offers
several types of Service contracts, relieving you of all
preventive maintenance work. For more details, consult your
nearest Atlas Copco representative.

The schedule comprises a summary of the maintenance


instructions. Read the respective section before taking
maintenance measures. The "longer interval" checks must
also include the "shorter interval" checks. When servicing,
replace all disengaged packings, e.g. gaskets, O-rings, washers.

Notes
1. More frequently when operating in a dusty atmosphere.
2. Use an oil filter as specified in the Parts list.
3. It is strongly recommended to use Atlas Copco Roto-injectfluid. This is special long-life oil of superior quality.
4. Damaged flexibles must be replaced immediately.
5. An automatic condensate drain system is available as option on GA Standard Pack.
6. For Pack/Full-feature: consult the User manual for the Elektronikon regulator for resetting the service timer.
7. Replace the filter if damaged.
8. Any leak should be attended to immediately.
9. For GA Pack / Full-feature: consult the User Manual for the Elektronikon regulator, section "Display test".
10. For GA Pack / Full-feature: consult the User Manual for the Elektronikon regulator, section "Modify settings submenu",
before modifying the temperature protection settings.
Stop the compressor. Decrease the shut-down warning level for the compressor element outlet temperature to the
minimum setting and the shut-down level a few degrees higher. Run the compressor: when reaching the warning level,
the control panel must indicate a warning, at the shut-down level, the unit must shut down. If not, consult Atlas Copco.
Afterwards, reset the warning and shut-down levels to their original values.
For GA Standard Pack, consult Atlas Copco for testing.
11. Atlas Copco has oil separators to separate the major part of the oil from the condensate to ensure that the condensate
meets the requirements of the environmental codes.

8 Instructions for use of air receiver


1. This vessel can contain pressurized air; be aware of its potential danger in case of misuse.
2. This vessel shall only be used as compressed air/oil separator and be operated within the specified limits as mentioned on
the data plate.
3. No alterations shall be made to this vessel by welding, drilling or other methods of mechanical work without written
permission of the manufacturer.
4. Original bolts have to be used after opening for inspection. The maximum torque has to be taken into consideration: for
M12 bolts 73 Nm (+/- 18), for M16 bolts 185 Nm (+/- 45).
5. Pressure and temperature of this vessel must be clearly indicated.
6. The safety valve must correspond with pressure surges of 1.1 times the maximum allowable operating pressure. It should
guarantee that the pressure will not permanently exceed the maximum allowable operating pressure of the vessel.
7. Use only oil as specified by the manufacturer.
8. This vessel has been designed and built to guarantee an operational lifetime in excess of 20 years and an infinite number of
pressure load cycles. Therefore, there is no intrinsic need for in service inspection of the vessel when used within the
design limits and in its intended application. However, national legislation may require in service inspection.
