GEA Bock will present a new generation of innovative CO2 and HC compressors for natural refrigerants for the very first time at EuroShop 2020 in Düsseldorf next week.
GEA Bock product manager for natural refrigerants, Manuel Fröschle, said the new subcritical and transcritical CO2 compressor series offer clever solutions for refrigeration systems especially in the application of supermarkets and distribution centres.
Describing the series as reliable and powerful, he said operators benefit from improved process efficiency with minimized energy costs and a wide range of applications - also in combination with heat recovery and air conditioning.
The theme for the world premiere is the Clever Art of Cooling. Fröschle said the HGX44e CO2 series, which is designed for industrial low temperature applications, offers at least six per cent higher compressor efficiency compared to other compressors on the market.
"This allows operating costs in hypermarkets and distribution centers to be significantly reduced. And all this with the highest reliability during operation thanks to our proven GEA Bock CO2 compressor design," he said.
GEA Bock is also expanding its portfolio for transcritical applications in the lower capacity range with the new HGX24 CO2 (L)T CO2 compressor series.
With cooling capacities from 9 to 21 kW in medium temperature, the compressor is specially designed for system applications in supermarkets with smaller capacities. "Thanks to the CO2-specific design, the compact compressors guarantee high flexibility in application through a wide frequency range with minimum partial load control and maximum operational reliability," Fröschle said.
The company’s complete range of commercial HC reciprocating compressors for hydrocarbon-based natural refrigerants such as propane and propylene will also be on show at EuroShop.
