BITZER Advanced Header Technology (BAHT) files patent application for scroll compressor tandems and trios
(PresseBox) (Sindelfingen/Milan, )From March 18 to 21, the specialist for refrigeration compressors BITZER will be presenting its latest innovations at Mostra Convegno Expocomfort 2014 in Milan. One real trade fair highlight will be the patent-pending BITZER Advanced Header Technology (BAHT) for ORBIT scroll compressors, but the spotlight will also be on BITZER’s new screw compressors.
One major advantage of innovative BITZER Advanced Header Technology (BAHT) scroll compressor tandems and trios is their great flexibility when applied to the design of air conditioning and heat pump systems. The ORBIT compressor’s special features, for instance the design with the crankcase oil being isolated from the suction gas, ensure that it has exceptionally low oil carryover rates. Minor pressure differences in the suction manifold do not have any impact on the oil equalization between the compressors at low mass flow rates under partial load.
BITZER ORBIT: greater compressor design flexibility
BITZER Advanced Header Technology allows a single header package to be used for up to 20 different capacity combinations, which throws open a whole array of new options for air conditioning engineers when configuring future systems. The new technology even allows compressors of varying cooling capacity to be configured as uneven tandems with no active oil equalisation. According to BITZER, this represents a unique selling proposition which permits ORBIT 6 and 8 scroll compressors, for instance, to be combined in a single air conditioning system, thus cutting storage costs for OEMs and retailers.
A further advantage is that BITZER Advanced Header Technology does not require internal restrictor washers, which can be difficult for OEMs to manage on the production floor. The advantage of this is that the system integrates well into existing lean production systems.
ORBIT scroll compressors: high-efficiency compressors for air conditioning systems and heat pumps
ORBIT scroll compressors are characterized by high isentropic efficiency, low sound levels and excellent energy efficiency. The ORBIT 6 series features displacements of between 20 and 38 cubic meters per hour, while the larger ORBIT 8 series is capable of between 29 and 77 cubic meters. ORBIT scroll compressors are designed for use in air conditioning systems and heat pumps as well as for operation with the refrigerant R410A.
Full speed ahead in the BITZER ideas factory: screw compressors as trade fair highlights
At Mostra Convegno, BITZER will be exhibiting its latest screw compressor developments for the first time. Visitors to the BITZER trade fair stand at Mostra Convegno will be the first in the air conditioning sector to have the chance to put the compressor specialist’s latest models under the microscope.
Andrea Zocche, Managing Director of BITZER Italia: “We are delighted to be able to present some world firsts to visitors at Mostra Convegno 2014. For us, this trade fair is one of the most important in the world, as attested by the product portfolio we will have on show at the BITZER stand.” Volker Stamer, Director of Sales of Stationary Products, adds: “BITZER Advanced Header Technology is our number-one innovation, which allows compressors of different cooling capacity to be combined. This opens up a whole range of new options for our customers. Anyone who wants to check out the latest compressor technology will find what they are looking for here in Milan at the BITZER stand.”
