DORIN

Dorin presents CO2 COMPRESSORS: CD400 range
  • CD5200M, belonging to - 4 cylinders, featuring a displacement of 35.2 m3/n @ 50Hz.
CD500 range
  • CD6 500-40B, CD6 600-40M, CD6 700-40H, 6 cylinders, nominal power from 50hp to 70hp, featuring a displacement of 39.8 m3/h @ 50Hz.
  • CD6 500-45B, CD6 700-45M, CD6 800-45H, 6 cylinders, nominal power from 50hp to 80hp, featuring a displacement of 45.3 m3/n @ 50Hz.
  • CD6 500-53B, CD6 800-53M, 6 cylinders, nominal power from 50hp to 80hp, featuring a displacement of 53.2 m3/h @ 50Hz.
These displacements generate the largest refrigeration capacities available nowadays: in typical medium temperature conditions (-8°C evap. temp. / 90 bar high pressure / 35°C gas cooler output. / 50Hz) an array of duties varying between 85 kW (CD5200M) and 125 kW (CD6 800-59M) are now available with a single compressor configuration. Dorin offer CD400 and CD500 compressors to OEMs, to put them now into the excellent position to have a unique opportunity to correctly address all those End Users inquiries seeking for large capacities compressors. Dorin has then solved the actual issue of lack of alternatives to unaffordable costs for the larger refrigeration racks: as a matter of fact, given a certain duty, the aforementioned large displacements allow now for smaller amount of racks to fulfil large capacities inquiries.

The KRIWAN Voltage Monitor INT69 UY

Increased current consumption, incorrect phase sequences, differing supply voltage – the causes of malfunctions and resulting damage in electrical systems are often down to these factors. KRIWAN is presenting new solutions that facilitate effective current and phase monitoring, and provide all electrically driven components with reliable protection against network problems in compact units such as chillers, condensing units, and refrigeration racks. In many applications, such as refrigeration/AC/ventilation technology, as well as process technology, the systems used are fully pre-mounted on a frame. The advantages of this are standardized manufacture in a factory, easier transportation of complete units to the point of use, and faster commissioning. These systems are connected to the same supply voltage with all of the compressors, pumps, valves, and heat exchangers that they use. In order to protect against damage caused by problems with the supply network, KRIWAN has developed a simple, compact, and extremely reliable plug-and-play solution for the entire system.
