Bitzer will presents its latest innovations and product developments at Chillventa trade fair in Nuremberg, including the newest products of the CSVH3 series for highly efficient water chillers for air conditioning and process cooling, as well as industrial heat pumps. The speed-regulated compact screw compressors with integrated frequency inverters feature impressively high performance and improved (E)SEER values.
The CSVH3 series with an integrated refrigerant-cooled frequency inverter offers maximum seasonal energy efficiency and a wide capacity control range. The robust engineering of the screw compressor in combination with active monitoring of the application limits optimises the highest operational standard in reliability whilst also providing system operators with an overview of all relevant operating parameters.
The CSVH38 achieves a refrigerating capacity of up to 660 kW (R134a, +5/50°C) with a displacement of up to 1,156 m3
/h. The compressors work within a wide range of control from approx. 20 to 100 per cent of the refrigerating capacity.
And Bitzer will presents the Varipack product series. All Bitzer reciprocating compressors can be operated with this new generation of intelligent frequency inverters.
The new Varipack product series is designed for safe and easy capacity control and was specially adapted to suit refrigeration and operation of Bitzer refrigeration compressors. After intuitive commissioning, the frequency inverters take over the control functions of the refrigeration system. Optimised adjustment to suit the system’s current cooling demand reduces energy consumption as well as running costs. With its modular design, the Varipack series achieves a high degree of flexibility and opens up a wide spectrum of variants for a large application range in supermarkets, hotels, restaurants as well as food production and processing centres. The series is suitable for refrigeration systems, air conditioning systems and heat pumps and can be integrated both in single compressors and in compound systems.
Varipack frequency inverters can be operated in two modes: the compressor capacity control either depends on an external set point signal or on the evaporation pressure with an optionally available add-on module for pressure control. In addition to direct control of the evaporation pressure, the condenser fan can also be regulated via a 0–10 V output signal and a second compressor can also be switched on. The frequency inverters can either be integrated completely in a switchboard or mounted via push-through installation as desired. With the second option, smaller switchboards offer sufficient space, because the cooling body protrudes out and therefore a majority of the generated heat is discharged directly outside.

Hall 4A, Stand 313
ebm-papst will be presenting its latest fans and solutions for refrigeration technology.
Revolutionary axial fan concept
Noise emission and energy efficiency are key aspects for axial fans used in the evaporators, condensers and heat exchangers in ventilation, refrigeration and air conditioning systems – in addition to the required air flow. To be able to fully exploit the potential available for optimization, the fan has to be considered as an entire system consisting of the impeller, motor, housing and control electronics. Efficiency improvements can only go hand in hand with improvements in aerodynamics. ebm-papst has taken on this challenge and developed a revolutionary concept for axial fans that will be presented for the first time at Chillventa.
AxiTop diffuser for axial fans with diameters of 1.25 meters
The size 1250 mm axial fans from ebm-papst have been equipped with new blades featuring an optimized inclination angle. The axial fans in this size category can now be combined with the AxiTop diffuser. Based on the improved aerodynamics and the simultaneous use of diffusers, energy consumption can be reduced by 25% and the overall efficiency level boosted by over 50%. Thanks to their powerful 6 kW electronics, they achieve airflow of up to 65,000 m³/h. These fans are used in electricity generation systems, gas plants and compressor stations, as well as in large refrigerating plants and condensers.
“FanScout” selection software now TÜV SÜD-certified
When the fan is too weak, this means insufficient cooling but when it is too strong, the fan consumes too much energy. To quickly and reliably find the optimal fan for the application in the extensive ebm-papst product range, the company has developed the “FanScout” selection software – also on show at Chillventa. The software is based on the measured characteristic diagrams for each fan/motor combination. This makes the operating data generated from the software extremely accurate. The calculation accuracy in comparison to real measurements is classified in the highest precision class – confirmed by TÜV SÜD. The selection process also finds fans for parallel operation in so-called FanGrids.
Hall 6, Stand 318/418

GEA will present innovative products in its range of commercial and industrial compressors, ice generators, solutions along the entire cold chain as well as an animation of the GEA Grasso V series.
The semi-hermetic compressors GEA Bock HG series
The HG series of semi-hermetic compressors – the GEA Bock HG22e, HG34e, HG44e, HG56e, HG66e, HG76e and HG88e models – have now been optimized and offer top efficiency as well as optimized running quietness. These compressors profit from an efficient valve plate system, electric motors from the latest generation, and improved gas passage – which enables them to achieve optimal efficiency. The oil pump lubrication system enables a greater control range with frequency inverters.
Whereas the models already on the market have been optimized, the GEA Bock HG56e represents a completely new 6-cylinder series. The new HG56e series replaces the previous 4-cylinder HG5 series and the smallest series of the HG6 compressors. It offers greater efficiency and optimized running quietness, and its three model sizes cover the displacement range from 73.8 to 100.4 m³/h (at 50 Hz).
The compressors HG22e, HG34e, HG44e, and HG56e operate with an optimized standard valve plate design. The two series HG66e and HG76e, to be launched on the market, will feature the proven-successful mexxFlow design concept. The combination of the double lamellar ring design of the mexxFlow valve plate, featuring flow-optimized characteristics, with a cylinder head especially designed for this valve plate, has enabled an efficiency increase of the compressors by up to 20 %, depending on application.
GEA Bock HG series compressors for applications with natural refrigerants
For subcritical and transcritical CO2
applications, GEA offers a range of compressors that now includes a displacement of 6.2 to 38.2 m³/h (at 50 Hz), with 2, 4, or 6 cylinders. These compressors are characterized by great reliability, excellent running behavior, a broad frequency band for minimal part-load requirements, slight oil carry-over, and outstanding efficiency. The semi-hermetic 6-cylinder piston compressor HG46 CO2
T, for example, is currently the largest of its kind for transcritical CO2
applications and offers long-standing field experience. In addition to its displacement up to 38.2 m³/h, it is also impressive owing to its outstanding coefficient of performance (COP). The great efficiency of transcritical GEA CO2
compressors has been confirmed by ASERCOM certification for a number of compressor models.
GEA also offers efficient solutions for hydrocarbons: the HC range (HC = hydrocarbons), with displacement of 5.4 to 279.8 m³/h, satisfies all stipulations of the F-Gas Regulation. This provides planning assurance to plant contracting companies, operators, and investors. In addition to the already optimized and well-establish model HG44e HC, GEA will present new 6-cylinder compressors for hydrocarbons: the GEA Bock HG56e HC series, with three models, covers the range with displacements from 73.8 to 100.4 m³/h. HC compressors for applications with hydrocarbons are available in an extensive displacement range, including ATEX applications, Zone 1 and Zone 2.
The GEA Grasso M series: extended portfolio for smaller capacities
With its new, smaller screw compressors, GEA now rounds off its GEA Grasso M series downward by adding smaller output ratings. The former spectrum of offerings began at volumetric displacements of 471 m³/h (at 2,940 rpm) and extended to 870 m³/h. The expanded series now begins at 231 m³/h. The new small models benefit from the proven and energy-efficient design: they are engineered for the speed range from 1,000 to 6,000 rpm, which allows them to cover a broad load range. The internal volume ratio (Vi) can be controlled in an extended range, which allows energy-optimized operation even at reduced condensation temperatures.
In addition, the pressure-activated check valve ensures minimal pressure drop on the suction side. The GEA Grasso M series furthermore offers an integrated suction filter and an adaptive coupling casing, which simplifies integration into a package. The GEA Grasso M series represents the development of an industrial screw compressor that differs above all from conventional screw compressors in reliability and efficiency.
The GEA Splitpack – a GEA Geneglace ice generator and GEA Bock Plusbox
The GEA Splitpack combines an ice generator (GEA Geneglace F30), for indoor installation, with an entire outdoor condensing unit, the GEA Bock Plusbox, to provide a complete solution.
The GEA Splitpack combines the GEA Geneglace ice generator with the GEA Bock Plusbox to provide a complete solution. The split system allows the ice generator to be installed on the shop floor, near the process. In contrast, the Plusbox, a complete outdoor condensing unit, is installed outside at a distance of up to 20 m from the ice generator.
The Plusbox features proven semi-hermetic GEA piston compressors, with maximum displacements of 18.8 to 33.1 m³/h. A speed-controlled fan at the condenser ensures efficient ice production, even with high outdoor temperatures, since it assures a constant temperature of condensation. The GEA Splitpack operates with the refrigerants R404A or R134A and is available with GEA Geneglace ice generator F15, F30, F90H, or G100. Maximum production is 400 to 2,200 kg/day, depending on the ice generator used.

The Chillventa fair the Güntner Group will present innovations created for the trends of the future at the internationally leading trade fair for refrigeration engineering, HVAC and heat pumps.
New adiabatic gas cooler for transcritical CO2 plants
With the new Güntner Gas cooler Diagonal Compact GGDC equipped with humidification pad and Güntner Hydro Management GHM humidification control, Güntner's objective is to push the CO2 equator geographically southwards: This newly developed unit with adiabatic air pre-cooling allows for efficient operation of transcritical CO2 plants also in regions where ambient temperatures climb above +40 °C. The GGDC with its maximum operating pressure of 120 bar and a maximum operating temperature of +150 °C provides a capacity range of up to approx. 300 kW. The specifically developed GHM control continuously controls the water volume according to the heat exchanger's load requirement (fan speed) as well as the measured ambient temperature and humidity. This way, the wetting water distribution is constantly and ideally adjusted to the operating conditions.
Millions of types designed with pinpoint accuracy Offering a capacity range of 30 – 1800 kW, the new Vario series are mainly designed for applications in the areas of industrial refrigeration, air conditioning, process cooling and server room cooling. In addition to the current and new synthetic refrigerants on the market, you can of course also select as operating fluid natural alternatives like ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons (e.g. propane). The gas coolers named GGHV and GGVV are designed for a maximum operating pressure of 120 bar. A broad range of accessories is also available for the Vario series. Beside the common accessories like vibration dampers and extended legs, also accessories like e.g. inspection covers for cleaning purposes are on offer. Additionally, the accessibility of the heat exchanger may be further improved with hinged fan plates. Another advantage of the Vario product line: The great variety of individually configurable unit types offers the technically optimal standard solution for any application scenario without any expenditure of time for special designs.
Air coolers with up to 80 bar as standard The new Slim and Cubic air coolers (GASC and GACC) are designed for an operating pressure of up to 80 bar as standard; their construction is optimised with regard to all common refrigerants. The hygiene-certified units are easy to mount and easy to clean.

Hall 7, Stand 204
Kelvion (formerly GEA Heat Exchangers) will present its portfolio of heat exchangers, as well as commercial and industrial cooler systems. The Kelvion “glass cooler” to be shown at Chillventa adds transparency to a display of industrial processes. This item being exhibited at the fair is a Goedhart VCI-p-13457 air cooler, in which some of the copper tubes have been replaced by glass to reveal what goes on inside. Fair visitors can therefore follow the evaporation process inside the cooler. This model features a third, additional heat exchanger circulation system as condenser – which enhances the output of a compressor and heats air.
Further items to be exhibited by Kelvion at Chillventa include:
Premiere at the fair: The new dual-discharge cooler
The new Kelvion industrial air cooler with air outlet at two sides will be shown as a world premiere. This model represents a further development of the Kelvion dual-discharge, but with radial fans – an innovation among industrial coolers. The new cooler design produces air flow at a 90-degree angle, which enables reduction of performance losses in comparison to coolers with axial fans. It also enhances the flow of air onto the heat exchangers and thereby allows reduced system height without loss of cooling duty. At Chillventa, Kelvion will announce details on model sizes, equipment variations, and the name of the new cooler range.
Searle GF gas coolers for CO2-refrigeration systems: Smaller heat exchanger tubes for increased heat transfer
Less refrigerant content, a smaller footprint, and significantly reduced weight – Kelvion has enabled all this with its redesigned Searle GF gas coolers for subcritical and transcritical CO2
refrigeration systems. These coolers, equipped with AC or EC motors, profit from the new heat exchangers with tube diameters of only 5 mm. The thin tubes – which are ideal for CO2
as refrigerant, with its favorable thermal properties – allow cost-efficient cooler solutions for applications with high pressures. Kelvion developed its Micro Tubes with the aid of numerical flow simulation and optimized them in prototype tests in a wind tunnel. These tests revealed that a non-equilateral tube configuration represents an optimal solution. The result is heat transfer that is 18 % greater than the most efficient Kelvion heat exchangers until now.
Quiet and powerful: the Küba SG Industrial models for industrial applications
For the application range of approx. 5 to 188 kW cooling duty (depending on refrigerant), Küba SG air coolers are designed for industrial use. The injection numbers in these coolers lead to enhanced performance levels, in accordance with individual applications. The improvement in heat exchanger geometry and the aerodynamically optimized fan system likewise contribute to efficiency. The advanced fans require up to 70 % less power than with fan drives from earlier generations without control systems – and they allow draw-through or blow-through operation. In addition, they operate up to 16 dB(A) quieter than previous fans. Further characteristics become positively apparent, such as components that are easy to access and clean – especially for applications in areas such as food and beverage processing and logistics. The drip tray, for example is hinged, and the fans as well as side components can be swiveled out for ease of cleaning.
Lean technology for refrigerated catering displays and equipment: the Küba gastro slim FM
With its Küba gastro FM range, Kelvion already offered compact and high-performance coolers from its portfolio for slim refrigerated counters, display cabinets, and tables. These systems can be used at a side wall (single-side discharge), or behind the center column (double-side discharge). The new Küba gastro slim FM needs even a smaller footprint. It has an installation width of only 75 mm and therefore fits behind the center column of virtually any refrigerated counter. The patented air straightener guarantees uniform temperature distribution in refrigerated display cases and considerably shortens cooling-down periods. For applications down to -30 °C, it is possible with little effort to retrofit an electrical defrost unit. Its high-quality and food-safe powder coating makes the Küba gastro slim FM ideal, even for open-display or acidic-content goods: for example, marinades. These units are available in three model sizes, with cooling duties of 0.11 to 0.23 kW. In their standard versions, these models are prepared for CO2
up to a pressure level of 60 bar, for applications in transcritical ranges and above-freezing refrigeration.
Highly corrosion resistant and robust: the VacInox heat exchanger range
With its VacInox heat exchanger range, Kelvion satisfies the strictest demands for applications in potable-water supply and in industrial processes. The highly resistant connection of its stainless steel plates enables compact design and great corrosion resistance. Kelvion has developed its own brazing filler metal, which does not contain non-ferrous metal, with the result that VacInox heat exchangers meet strict specifications for high temperatures and pressure up to 35 bar. VacInox units are designed for potable-water installations, laser refrigeration, district heating systems, and – for example – as evaporators and condensers in ammonia facilities.

Secop will highlight their 60 years of operation at Chillventa 2016. The company will also showcase its latest developments in the field of variable speed drive and hydrocarbon compressors.
Secop’s product portfolio will be on display at Chillventa. These include, among others, the new SLVE compressor, which is significantly more powerful than previous models through the use of energy-optimized components. Like the SLVE compressors, the new variable speed drive DLV and NLV-Series are conceptualized for use in commercial cooling systems.
With these products, Secop continues the success story of its R290 compressor program. R290 (propane) is characterized by its high efficiency and is an environmentally compatible hydrocarbon. It has no Ozone Depletion Potential and maintains extremely low global warming potential (GWP3).
The variable speed drive enables a needs-based adjustment of cooling capacity and ensures high efficiency even in partial load operations. Compared to fixed speed refrigeration compressors, variable speed drives can achieve energy savings of up to 40 percent.

Be on the safe (high-pressure) side with thermolinePlus
In addition to the plate heat exchanger series thermolineVario, thermolineEco and thermolinePure, the company thermowave also offers the thermolinePlu series for high-pressure applications of up to 63 bar.
Apart from their outstanding efficiency, the apparatuses offer further advantages like a compact design, a small footprint, low weight and low refrigerant filling quantity.
With their high pressure resistance, they are predestined for applications using the natural refrigerant CO2. Therefore, they are ideal e.g. for heat recovery in CO2 cascade systems or for use in many industrial refrigerating processes and for heat pumps.
thermolinePlus apparatuses are made from laser-welded modules. The welded plate module forms a hermetically sealed flow channel. The laser-welded seams serve as sealing and ensure the highest operational reliability even in critical applications. During tests on the bursting strength of the laser-welded seams, pressure levels of 160 – 300 bar were tolerated, depending on the type tested.

Zanotti is once again at the forefront of innovation, displaying at the next Chillventa an impressive lineup of climate friendly, smart, efficient and versatile new products.
Examples include a low charge propane monoblock, a transcritical CO2 monoblock, a fully operating first-of-its-kind transcritical CO2 ice producer and two CO2 compressor racks. The combined use of natural refrigerants and cascade technology has resulted in an innovative fully natural solution with low GWP, maximum safety and extended operating envelope at high ambient conditions.
Zanotti has then developed a new control system for cold rooms that raises the bar in refrigeration controls in terms of intelligence and connectivity, making life easier for all the stakeholders in the cold chain: installers, thanks to the plug and play approach; end users, thanks to the energy saving algorithms; and service engineers, thanks to the predictive maintenance functionality. All can benefit from the multiple connectivity options, locally from smartphone and tablets or remotely via the internet.
Zanotti will also display one of his well-known monoblock system for cold rooms, configured for ducted condenser airflow, showing the versatility of this proven concept that can meet almost any application requirements.
A condensing unit with variable speed compressors will also be displayed to demonstrate Zanotti’s focus on energy efficiency and accurate temperature control in food storage applications with the most stringent requirements.
Zanotti will have a compressor rack on display that has been optimized for markets where first cost is a key driver, while retaining build quality and reliability.
Last but not least, a transport unit applicable to refrigerated vans will be on display, as an example of the wider Zanotti transport range suitable for vans, truck and trailers.
