"Bitzer compressors have proven time and time again to be the best compressors for variable speed applications like the FortaCool® Refrigeration System."
- Ryan Williams,
Advanced Refrigeration Systems, Inc.
Bitzer refrigeration compressors working on the piston principle have proven themselves for decades in the areas of refrigeration and air conditioning. Reciprocating compressors distinguish themselves by their universal use: from low temperature applications through air conditioning or heat pumps. Furthermore, a variety of natural as well as synthetic refrigerants can be used.
Semi-Hermetic Reciprocating Compressors
Based on one technical concept, Bitzer semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors cover the entire spectrum of applications of conventional, chlorine-free HFC as well as natural refrigerants. They distinguish themselves by a robust valve plate design, a high quality and wear resistant drive gear, are easy-to-service and offer good speed control at minimum energy requirements as well as extremely smooth running. In addition, they incorporate an efficient, suction gas cooled integrated motor. The OCTAGON series of compressors additionally excels by extremely compact dimensions and even further increased smooth running. As of type 4J-13.2 proven internal oil return system is used.
The semi-hermetic reciprocating compressor models Varicool, Booster and CIC are available for the low temperature range with refrigerant R22. The nominal motor power lies between 0.37 kW and 74 kW.
