BITZER has introduced its new ORBIT+ scroll compressor series at Mostra Convegno in Milan.

The new models allow system manufacturers to fulfil the requirements of the European Ecodesign Directive. They feature a line start permanent magnet motor, which achieves efficiency levels that improve the seasonal performance (SEER/IPLV) by up to 8% while also increasing cooling capacity by up to 5%.
BITZER says the ORBIT+ compressors can replace or be combined with standard ORBIT models without redesigning the system significantly. Tandem and trio combinations can be  tailored towards system capacity and efficiency targets according to the customers’ specific needs and annual load characteristics. For even better capacity modulation, customers can add a frequency inverter like the BITZER VARIPACK.

All BITZER ORBIT models are designed to work with R410A as well as the most recently introduced low-GWP refrigerants, such as R454B and R452B, which belong to the A2L category. Similar to the ORBIT 6 and 8 series that have already been introduced, the new ORBIT+ models can operate with a frequency inverter at 35 to 75 Hz while performing with a low sound level and industry-leading low oil carry-over rate.

ORBIT scroll compressors were developed especially for air-conditioning and heat pump applications. BITZER says they are easy to install, offer high energy efficiency when fully or partially loaded and have the lowest noise emissions in their capacity class. In addition, energy consumption is extremely low, especially at low condensing temperatures where the ORBIT Boreal series can be applied.
