NEW ECOLINE Series - Progress Across the Board
Proven Reciprocating Compressors are now even more versatile
Increased energy efficiency
Increased cooling capacity
Extended application limits
Genuinely backwards compatible
Flowery Branch, GA. / BITZER US, Inc. has begun producing BITZER's NEW ECOLINE reciprocating compressor series at its Atlanta area manufacturing plant. With the new series, BITZER is transferring all the advantages of the proven ECOLINE series for R134a refrigerant to an even broader range of applications in order to provide customers with significant added value. The compressors are approved for R134a, R404A, R407A, R407C, R407F, and R507A and are offered in sizes ranging from 1/2HP to 50HP.
The extensive NEW ECOLINE series stands out with higher efficiency levels and simultaneously expanded application limits – and can still fit into existing systems as a replacement. The coefficient of performance (COP) was improved throughout the series by 6% (at nominal rating points) and, at low condensing temperatures, which are important for seasonal efficiency, the increase was up to 12%.
The New Ecoline compressors with motor version 2 are now universal refrigeration compressors – for full applicability in low temperature applications and medium temperature applications. Motor versions 1 or 3 are provided for heat pumps, medium temperature applications with R134a, and special applications.
Each NEW ECOLINE compressor is compatible with its predecessor model, with an unaltered mounting hole pattern and the same pipe connections – offering efficiency gains even when servicing existing systems. In addition, all NEW ECOLINE compressors are suitable for operation with external frequency inverters.
BITZER US, Inc. is a subsidiary of the BITZER Group of 36 companies. BITZER is the world's largest independent manufacturer of A/C and Refrigeration compressors with sales companies and production sites for reciprocating, screw, and scroll compressors as well as pressure vessels all over the globe. In 2012, 3,046 employees generated sales of 639 million euros.
