BITZER, a specialist in refrigeration and air conditioning technology, has been a pioneer of new products with a unique CO2 balance and CO2 as a refrigerant for many years.
In supermarkets, CO2 is now the refrigerant of choice (R744) as it is inexpensive, available worldwide, and is neither toxic nor flammable in the classical sense.
Thanks to its GWP of 1, direct emissions from refrigerant leakage also diminish enormously.
BITZER ECOLINE and ECOLINE+ enable efficiency increases in CO2 systems without creating additional complexity.
BITZER ECOLINE reciprocating compressors allow users to find a suitable solution for every requirement and almost every refrigerant.
The ECOLINE series also includes the ME compressor series, which was specially designed for subcritical CO2 applications with high standstill pressure of up to 100 bar.
BITZER has now supplemented this series with two six-cylinder models. With 54 m³/h and 64.9 m³/h delivery volume at 50 Hz, the two larger models are particularly suitable for large refrigeration systems in hypermarkets and distribution warehouses.
ECOLINE+, the latest reciprocating compressor series from BITZER, is available as a four- and a six-cylinder version for CO2 applications and is particularly suitable for supermarket applications.
ECOLINE+ was developed with line start permanent magnet motors, which provide double efficiency benefits due to increased motor efficiency and reduced heat transfer into the refrigerant.
This motor technology enables the compressors to achieve up to 14% higher SEPR (annual performance factor).
