BITZER has issued a new version of its selection and performance software, allowing users to select the latest compressor models and refrigerants.
The software is only recently available in version 6.10.0, which enables users to select many new compressor models and refrigerants, with a key focus on the long-standing company’s screw compressors. The performance data for compressors of the HS series ranging between 20 and 75 Hz is now available for all conventional refrigerants. The corresponding VARIPACK frequency inverter can be selected as an accessory for any compressor.
Honeywell today said it will end sales of Genetron 404A (R-404A) and Genetron AZ-50 (R-507) refrigerants in the European Union in 2018 as contracts permit, in order to meet the deadline set by the European Union’s F-Gas Regulations, which stipulate the phase-out of high GWP HFCs by 2020.
The company has acted ahead of the expected scarcity of high GWP products due to the F-gas Regulation phase-down schedule, which determines how much refrigerant can be placed on the European market each year, based on GWP.
