At the EuroShop, Bitzer showed its innovative Ecoline+ reciprocating compressors and Ecostar condensing units.
The Ecoline+ reciprocating compressor series for transcritical CO2 applications is a milestone in the use of the environmentally friendly refrigerant which has been especially de-signed for supermarket applications. For the first time ever, Bitzer is now presenting an Ecoline+ 4-cylinder reciprocating compressor, which offers optimal efficiency both for full- and part-load and at the same time is very easy to integrate into refrigeration systems.
The Ecoline+ reciprocating compressors are now equipped with new line start permanent magnet motors (LSPM), an enhanced motor technology which forges ahead into better efficiency ranges. Mechanical capacity control for trans-critical CO2
applications is also new. This enables systems which are just as efficient for full- and part-load as is otherwise only possible today when using frequency inverters. So that users can fully exploit the potential of this technology, Bitzer has also developed a new operating concept with intelligent modules.
