GEA Bock will unveil its new generation of CO2 and HC compressors for natural refrigerants for the first time at EuroShop 2020 in Düsseldorf.

"The new subcritical and transcritical CO2 compressor series offer clever solutions for refrigeration systems especially in the application of supermarkets and distribution centres - future-proof, reliable, powerful," says Manuel Fröschle, Product Manager Natural Refrigerants at GEA Bock. "Operators benefit especially from improved process efficiency with minimised energy costs and a wide range of applications - also in combination with heat recovery and air conditioning."

The HGX44e CO2 series, designed for industrial low temperature applications, is said to offers at least 6% higher efficiency compared to other compressors on the market. "This allows operating costs in hypermarkets and distribution centres to be significantly reduced. And all this with the highest reliability during operation thanks to our proven GEA Bock CO2 compressor design," added Fröschle. 

The HG24 is aimed at smaller capacity supermarkets systems

GEA Bock is expanding its portfolio for transcritical applications in the lower capacity range with the new HGX24 CO2 (L)T CO2 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.

In addition, the company will be presenting its full range of commercial HC reciprocating compressors for the hydrocarbon-based natural refrigerants such as propane and propylene. 

EuroShop runs from March 16-20 and GEA Bock will be at booth D77, Hall 17.
