BITZER has become one of the first manufacturers to build scroll compressors for low-GWP A2L refrigerants on a large scale.

The Orbit (model range VL) and Orbit+ scroll compressors have been approved for serial production for use with the refrigerants R454B, R452B and R32 .
BITZER says this makes it the first manufacturer to supply scroll compressors with displacements of between 20 and 80 m3/h (50 Hz) for use with A2L refrigerants.

The Orbit series in the VA model range will continue to be available for operation with A1 refrigerants. 

The manufacturer says customers will particularly benefit from the A2L approval of the Orbit (model range VL) and Orbit+ compressors as both series provide several years of planning security due to the low GWP values of the refrigerants involved.
