BITZER's 8-cylinder CO₂ reciprocating compressor

BITZER is showcasing its products and solutions relating to energy efficiency and low-GWP refrigerants at this week's EuroShop 2023 in Düsseldorf (Stand D59, Hall 17).

Ecoline+ reciprocating compressor

The compressors were developed with permanent magnet motors and therefore achieve a seasonal energy performance ratio (SEPR) of up to 14% higher (annual performance figure). Optimised for CO₂ (R744), they offer high refrigerating capacity with minimal energy requirements. The equipment with the OLM-IQ electronic oil level switch helps to maintain a stable oil level in the compressor and avoid a lack of oil. The optional Varistep mechanical capacity control increases the system’s part load efficiency, for example with low outside temperatures. Alternatively, equipment with Varipack frequency inverters enables precise adjustment of the system to the particular cooling demand.

8-cylinder CO₂ reciprocating compressor

The new Ecoline 8-cylinder CO2 reciprocating compressors provide high refrigerating capacity in large systems and heat pump applications, such as in food production. The compressors are said to be up to 10% more energy-efficient than smaller compressors currently available on the market. The new 8-cylinder CO₂ reciprocating compressors are also designed for operation with frequency inverters and are equipped as standard with Varistep mechanical capacity control for part load operation and start unloading.

Ecolite condensing units

BITZER is presenting a new addition to its range of condensing units with the Ecolite LHL7E. The design provides a wider capacity range of up to 24kW in medium temperature application and up to 6kW in low temperature application. Whether for kiosks, convenience stores or supermarkets – the low-sound and compact models from the Ecolite family offer flexibility for a variety of applications. The plug-and-play concept means that they are easy to install. The design of the condensing units focuses on aspects such as outdoor installation, low sound emissions and ensuring that all components are easy to access during maintenance. 

Digital support

As well as supplying components for energy-efficient refrigeration and air conditioning systems, BITZER supports its customers and users with digital services, which will also be highlighted at this year’s EuroShop. The BITZER Digital Network (BDN), for instance, is based on the compressor expertise at BITZER and creates a service infrastructure for efficient operation and high component availability. The myBITZER online platform enables users to view and analyse their compressors’ operating data via the IQ modules. This makes it easy to find or prepare solutions remotely in the event of maintenance or a fault.
