Bitzer’s booth at Chillventa 2016

ECOLINE and ECOLINE+: efficient progress

One of the most popular of BITZER’s semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors is the ECOLINE range – a benchmark for high energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, user-friendliness and reliability. ECOLINE reciprocating compressors offer maximum energy efficiency in full- and part-load and are designed for a very extensive range of applications in supermarkets and beyond. One of the series’ benefits: it offers maximum freedom in the selection of the refrigerant. Whether new climate-friendly refrigerants such as R1234yf and R1234ze(E), low-GWP blends or natural refrigerants, users will always find a suitable, eco-friendly solution in ECOLINE.

ECOLINE+ is solution for eco-efficiency

BITZER’s latest range is the ECOLINE+, which is available solely for CO2 applications. With its GWP of 1, CO2 offers users planning security over the long term. ECOLINE+ is particularly suitable for supermarket applications and available in both 4- and 6-cylinder versions. The ECOLINE+ series features improved motor technology that fully exploits the motor’s high efficiency and the low heat input of the CO2 refrigerant. With the help of line-start permanent-magnet (LSPM) motors, the compressors achieve a seasonal energy performance ratio (SEPR) up to 14% higher (annual performance figure). The ECOLINE+ series’ other strengths include its mechanical capacity control for transcritical applications, which enables outstanding system efficiency in both full- and part-load.

 

OS.A95 ammonia compressors for operation with heavy loads in industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning applications

OS.A95: flexible and eco-friendly
With its energy-efficient OS.A95 screw compressor series, BITZER offers a climate-friendly and powerful solution for ammonia applications. The natural refrigerant has no global warming potential and thus does not damage the ozone layer. Their cooling capacity and automatic Vi adjustment make OS.A95 screw compressors suitable for a whole host of applications. In combination with automatic Vi adjustment, the series’ extensive application limits diagram enables efficient use of the series in air-conditioning, medium- and low-temperature systems as well as in heat pump applications. The optimised rotor profiles and the large flow cross sections in the compressor also contribute to efficient operation.

 

ORBIT FIT with economiser technology

ORBIT series: the most versatile scroll compressors on the market
BITZER ORBIT scroll compressors operate at peak efficiency despite demanding conditions, helping to reduce system footprints thanks to their compact size and unique compound solutions. So far, users have been able to choose from two families: ORBIT 6 and ORBIT 8. For increased market requirements, such as the F-gas Regulation, BITZER has developed the new ORBIT+ and ORBIT FIT (Flexible Injection Technology) series. ORBIT+ with line-start permanent-magnet motor boosts system efficiency, while the economiser operation of ORBIT FIT enlarges the application envelope and increases capacity as well as efficiency. All BITZER ORBIT models are designed to work with R410A as well as low-GWP refrigerants, such as R454B, R452B, and R32, which belong to the A2L category. Similar to the ORBIT 6 and 8 series that have already been introduced, the new ORBIT+ and ORBIT FIT compressors are able to operate with a frequency inverter at 35 to 75 Hz while performing with a low sound level and industry-leading low oil carry-over rate.

ORBIT scroll compressors were developed especially for air-conditioning and heat pump applications. They are easy to install, offer high energy efficiency when fully or partially loaded and have the lowest noise emissions in their capacity class. What is more, the energy consumption is extremely low, especially at low condensing temperatures where the ORBIT Boreal series can be applied. Every ORBIT series can be combined with BITZER Advanced Header Technology (BAHT) in numerous tandem and trio combinations. This technology enables proper compressor lubrication and allows system designers and manufacturers to simplify development work by optimising manufacturing processes. This results in reduced complexity and operating costs as well as a quicker time to market for new systems.

 

ECOLITE series for low and medium temperature applications

ECOSTAR and ECOLITE: a solution for every application

BITZER covers a wide range of applications: all condensing unit models are ready for use with low-GWP refrigerants and comply with the EU Ecodesign Directive.

With the ECOSTAR LHV5E and LHV7E, BITZER has developed an air-cooled and particularly energy-efficient series of condensing units. Thanks to their outstanding energy efficiency, they quickly pay for themselves in the face of rising electricity prices. The optimised construction and the outstanding software functions are further distinguishing features which ensure low noise and reliable operation, as well as ease of installation, commissioning and use of the LHV5E and LHV7E units. The ECOSTAR series has an efficient mini channel condenser, which means it needs less refrigerant charge. The series also boasts a reliably long useful product life. Devices can be quickly installed on-site thanks to the control electronics being factory-wired, making them immediately ready to operate. The same applies for the newly developed ECOLITE condensing units: ECOLITE plug-and-play condensing units offer noteworthy adaptability due to their VARISTEP capacity regulation with an efficient BITZER ECOLINE compressor at their core. They require only small refrigerant charge thanks to efficient BITZER condensers and other system-optimised components designed and approved by BITZER. Furthermore, they distinguish themselves by their user-friendly controller with key-parameter monitoring and special functions like the automatic emergency operation. The units have been developed and constructed for low sound levels as well as low- and medium-temperature applications.

 

Heat exchangers and pressure vessels

 HEXPV: a complete new range of heat exchangers

BITZER will also exhibit a range of heat exchangers and pressure vessels at a dedicated stand (7-626 in hall 7). The compressor specialist is expanding its product range, incorporating dry expansion evaporators, water-cooled condensers and flooded evaporators after the acquisition of the shell-and-tube business for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications from Alfa Laval SpA, Italy. The highest efficiency dry expansion evaporator for air-conditioning duties will be on display. BITZER will also present, for the first time, a new and larger water-cooled condenser from its K series for both freshwater and seawater applications. Thanks to these new models, BITZER condensers will increase their capacity by 40%, maintaining their traditional robustness and efficiency. For heat exchangers and pressure vessels, BITZER is also introducing a flexibility concept, giving operators the possibility to change the design of the products they have purchased without the addition of a long and complex order and delivery process. The possibility to change certain component details, such as the position of the refrigerant connections, can in some cases be the only way to comply with specific dimensional and functional constraints. Operators just need to fill in their desired new dimensions on approval drawings available on the BITZER website and in the updated version of the BITZER software.

BITZER will also exhibit products for CO2 from its HEXPV division.

Chillventa 2018 will see the preview of a complete solution for residential heat pumps compatible with natural refrigerants. This is a ready-to-use system whose strengths are easy installation and completeness, in full compliance with the latest regulations and demands for natural and low-GWP refrigerants.

Natural refrigerants

At Chillventa, CAREL will be presenting an increasingly extended offer, with high efficiency solutions that allow the use of natural or low-GWP refrigerants.

Heos, the well-known waterloop solution for commercial refrigeration that combines energy efficiency, direct temperature control inside the refrigeration unit, fast installation and design flexibility, is now available for use with R290, CO2 and HFO.

Hecu is the condensing unit control solution that integrates management of a compressor with DC inverter technology (up to two in cascade in the LT configuration), transcritical valves (HPV and RPRV) and two high-efficiency EC fans.

The latest innovation is represented by the Sistema DC Cella for developing cold room CO2 systems, which minimises installation times and complexity.

With the “EmJ” range of modulating ejectorsand the pRack multi DC controller, CAREL can offer sustainable optimisation of energy efficiency in transcritical CO2 refrigeration systems in warm and temperate climates, from small convenience stores to large supermarkets.

At the show CAREL will be displaying the latest technological developments that allow the efficient use of natural refrigerants and extend them to all applications, both in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors. Significant innovations will also be exhibited for the heat pump industry.

Connectivity

New technologies and new business models are leading to machines now being evaluated not only for the performance they generate, but also for the information they provide. For this reason, CAREL has created a working team devoted entirely to the development of IoT-related services.

One of the results is APPLICA, the mobile app for the latest generation of smart controllers with integrated NFC and Bluetooth® connectivity, for installers and maintenance personnel. Configuration and optimisation of unit set-up are made simple and intuitive by the combination of smartphone application and web portal, allowing configurations and graphics to be defined flexibly and always kept up-to-date.

In addition to MPXone, APPLICA can also be used to manage the new CAREL controller retail refrigeration units, including μCHILLER (solution for the complete management of chillers and heat pumps) and Heez (solution for refrigerated merchandisers). The new interface uses the specific graphic and multimedia features of mobile devices (smartphone, tablet), superseding traditional integrated user interfaces.

APPLICA represents a major innovation in the evolution of CAREL’s parametric controllers: with APPLICA the unit can be configured in one single operation, exchanging information with a remote service and receiving alerts in the event of alarms.

At Chillventa CAREL will also be exhibiting heaterSteam titanium, the world’s only titanium heater humidifier, an ideal solution for applications where service continuity is crucial, due to its extreme reliability. heaterSteam uses pGDx, the new 4.3” touch display, designed to improve the user experience in humidifier management. This is the world’s first humidifier with a pre-configured predictive maintenance solution available in the IoT suite of services. Data monitoring and analysis in real time on dedicated dashboards guarantee efficiency and service continuity.

At the CAREL stand, a virtual experience will be exhibited for the first time ever, highlighting the advantages of Carel’s IoT solutions from both an educational and training viewpoint, as well as predictive maintenance.

High efficiency

The wide range of CAREL valves and inverters, constantly growing and being updated, will also be on display at Chillventa. Based on our experience and consolidated know-how, research and development is being focused on offering increasingly efficient and high-performance solutions. Many of CAREL’s systems for controlling refrigeration and air-conditioning units and systems are underpinned by two decisive and consolidated technologies: electronic expansion valves and DC compressor inverters. Both of these components are designed to optimise the operation of refrigeration units. The benefits? Up to 40% less power consumption, fine temperature control at all times, and optimisation of operating conditions to maximise compressor reliability and performance.

Completing the proposal will be a range of compressors made in collaboration with leading international manufacturers and distributed exclusively by CAREL.

High efficiency will also be on show in our solutions for heat pumps, with a further improvement in performance, thanks to the new generation BLDC drive – PSD2, and the transition from efficiency at a single-unit level to cooperation between multiple units or systems, from a smart grid and smart city perspective. Another essential aspect highlighted is the drive towards IoT and cloud management developed by CAREL, with positive repercussions also in terms of the user experience.

DORIN

Hall 6, stand 316

Compressor manufacturer DORIN is showcasing its widest product range, including its highly technological innovations, at stand 6-316.

Dorin’s booth at Chillventa 2016

NEW CO2 TRANS-CRITICAL COMPRESSORS

One of the most appreciated DORIN line of compressors is the CD Range for CO2 transcritical and subcritical applications, a real reference on the market for high energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, user-friendliness and reliability. CD reciprocating compressors offer maximum energy efficiency and are designed for a very comprehensive number of applications such as commercial and industrial refrigeration. CD compressors offer the market with the widest range capacity of choices, larger than any other competitors on the market, ranging from 1,5 hp for single compressor units, to 160 hp for large industrial applications.

CD 600 CO2 TRANSCRITICAL Compressor

CD ranges are the widest available in the market and thanks to the automotive solutions thereby deployed, offer system designers the most reliable and robust choice for their CO2 based equipments.

CD compressors are particularly suitable for supermarket applications in their 2-4 cylinders platforms, while the 6-cylinders versions, are perfectly matching with the larger duties typically featured by industrial and process cooling systems.

CD compressors also offer double stage solutions: DORIN is the sole manufacturer proposing trans-critical compressors for LT applications.

CD Ranges vast success rely on the very many high technology solutions in place for all their components: end users full satisfaction has been our main concern and driver during our compressor engineering process. For instance, specific technical solutions, unique in the market, such as the external discharge manifold drastically reduces the internal heat transfer between compressor HP and LP sides when compared to direct competitors deign; this ensures utmost efficiency and considerably lower heat transfer to the oil, thus assuring much better lubricity figures into the entire drive gear.

All these technical features are implemented in the entire CD Range, including CD600 Series: this new compressor family features motor nominal power up to 160HP and up to 80 m3/h displacement for trans-critical applications: this being the largest CO2 transcritical compressor size in the market as of today and representing the ideal solution for large warehouses, food processing plant and industrial applications,  offering the possibility to drastically reduce the number of compressors installed on the rack, thus saving in space, investment costs and energy consumption when compared with similar equipment using NH3.

DORONICA – CMM Compressor Management Module

The reliability of cooling system is strongly dependent on the correct control of compressor working parameters which must be performed using precise and reliable analysis tools. Relaying on a long tradition in compressor manufacturing, DORIN has set a course for the future with its electronic Compressor Management Module – CMM.

H3400CC – H5 Series HFC Compressor

CMM will be available as an accessory for the 4, 6 and 8-cylinder semi-hermetic compressors with an oil pump lubrication both for HFC and CO2 refrigerants. The DORIN CMM uses a new specifically designed software developed internally to ensure the complete integration of our products into end-user plants safety and control systems, managing and recording all the main functional compressor data.

Thanks to the possibility of further simple customizations it adapts its performance to the demands of the system within different installing and operating conditions.

The DORIN CMM has a circular non-volatile rewritable memory (EEPROM) which stores all the alarms, warning and events, as well as other data. For each log it is also recorded the date and time that are always up to date even when the module is missing power as it is equipped with a lithium battery. If one of the values goes out of the pre-set range, the module signals this state and store it in the history log available through the Modbus connections.

DORIN CMM allows the system manager to control remotely all his plants from a single PC position, reducing drastically the management costs and granting a faster intervention in case of system failure.

 

DORIN SLCR – STEPLESS CAPACITY REGULATION

Capacity control is often used to match output cooling capacity supplied by the compressor to the actual request from the plant.

Dorin semihermetic compressors install the DORIN SLCR starting form 4 cylinders compressors up to the 8-cylinder compressors of any of the below ranges:

  • H range – HFC standard compressors
  • HEX range – ATEX approved compressors for HC
  • HEP range – specifically designed compressors for R134a applications
  • TH range – Dorin renowned Tandem Series.

H/HEX 7500 CC – H/HEX7 Series HFC/ATEX compressors

Compressors are generally sized to match the maximum capacity required by the plant design, however, in standard operating conditions, the actual cooling capacity is lower. Since many years capacity control systems have been using on semi hermetic compressors to prevent high switching cycles which can occur in case of cooling capacity surplus, reducing the risk of component wear and finally increasing the compressor reliability.

DORIN SLCR is an evolution of traditional capacity control system, whose main defect was the limited adaptability to system requirements since the number of capacity control steps was dependent on the number of compressor heads.

With the new DORIN SLCR it is possible to match the cooling capacity supplied by the compressor to the actual needs of the system continuously and without steps, optimizing costs and savings.

 

CDS_7 – 8-CYLINDERS FOR CO2 SUBCRITICAL APPLICATIONS

CDS-7 represents the largest CO2 subcritical compressor range actually available in the market. With its 4 models it can reach a top displacement of 123 m3/h and 80 HP nominal motor power, allowing to match high cooling capacity with a small number of compressors.

CDS_7 Range – Model CDS9001B – 122,82 m3/h, 80 Hp

CDS-7 compressors perfectly suite large LT heavy industrial applications arranged either in a cascade system with another refrigerant on top, or in a full CO2 booster configuration.

Its high internal flow optimization and the perfect matching of electrical motor sizes with compressor displacements make CDS-7 the most efficient compressor range on the market available for its size.

 

TRANSFORMER – NEW 12-CYLINDERS COMPRESSOR

An astonishing new project came to light in 2018 aiming at reducing the stress of the end user in relation to capacity required, spare parts management and overall plant management costs.

H8 Range – Model H18000CC – 518m3/h, 180Hp

The new TRANSFORMER REFRIGERATION COMPRESSOR is a globally new concept of manufacturing compressors, where common main parts and components make it possible to switch from one configuration to the other thanks to minor variable and changes: in fact the same engineering platform will serve as the base for both large sizes HFCs and CO2 sub-critical compressors

TRANSFORMER is a 12-cylinder compressor module that can have different configuration depending on the application.

Its SEMIHERMETIC CONFIGURATION, brings to the H8 compressor family, with nominal motor powers ranging from 100 to 180 HP with a displacement available from 303 to 520 m3/h. Ideal for industrial application. H8 can satisfy also large commercial project where space is an issue and management savings a must. The same platform will also serve the CO2 configuration for very large sub-critical applications, by generating the so-called CDS8 range.

The OPEN TYPE CONFIGURATION will enrich the already vast and famous as well as globally well appreciated and sold VS Series compressors. The new models 120-130-140-150 VS will enlarge the offer of swept volume ranging from 4000cm3 to almost 6000 cm3 and allowing displacements from almost 350 m3/h to 518 m3/h. These largest models of VS Series will allow larger systems in very harsh marine conditions and industrial environment.

ebm-papst

Hall 4A, Stand 317

The Chillventa trade show in Nuremberg is the world’s leading trade show when it comes to energy efficiency, heat pumps, and refrigeration technology. ebm-papst will be showcasing the latest innovations and trends in the fan sector.

ebm-papst’ booth at Chillventa 2016

Fans for cooling towers

At Chillventa, ebm-papst will be presenting fans for use in cooling towers, for example. They are used to provide cooling for processes, installations, or buildings. Waste heat is discharged into the ambient air using both axial and centrifugal fans with EC technology. With their special corrosion protection, the EC fans are ideally equipped to cope with tough environmental conditions. For instance, an axial fan measuring 1,250 mm with an AxiTop diffuser will be showcased at Chillventa. This model boasts a particularly high level of corrosion protection on account of its black coating.

Axial fan measuring 1,250 mm, here with the AxiTop diffuser, designed for use in cooling towers.

 

Save energy and boost networked capabilities in supermarkets

Alongside the lowest possible energy consumption, reliability is another important aspect with regard to refrigerated cabinets in supermarkets. If a fan fails, it is important to localize and rectify the fault quickly without any adverse effect on the cooling chain and before any food perishes. Networking via the serial interface for communication via MODBUS-RTU is helpful in this case. This is optionally available on EC fans with an energy-saving motor (ESM) from ebm-papst.

ATEX solutions for large refrigeration circuits

The smaller motors and complete systems from ebm-papst are made as standard to satisfy the requirements of the European standard EN 60335-2-89 (household appliance standard titled “Particular requirements for commercial refrigerating appliances”). They provide a reliable cooling solution, even when using flammable refrigerants. On cooling circuits using more than 150 g of flammable refrigerant, the standard prescribes the use of ATEX components. However, it is not sufficient to just use a motor with an ATEX label – the complete fan must be approved accordingly. With the ESM, ebm-papst also offers fans with ATEX approval II 3G Ex nA IIA T4 Gc. The fans conform to the ATEX standard EN 60079 and are therefore also authorized for use in large refrigerated cabinets as well as composite and cascade systems using more than 150 g of flammable refrigerant.

GreenIntelligence takes economy and ecology a step further

ebm-papst turns energy-efficient fans and drives into intelligently interconnected complete solutions. “GreenIntelligence”, to be presented for the first time at the Chillventa trade show in Nuremberg, is an impressive expression of this.

When it comes to choosing the right drive or fan, it is important to not just look at the product properties such as energy efficiency and performance values, these days the optimum interaction of all components is crucial as well. All products with GreenIntelligence from ebm-papst have IoT capability and can be interconnected with any system – quickly and easily thanks to plug & play.

Condition monitoring courtesy of GreenIntelligence
The AxiBlade axial fan illustrates one particularly impressive example of GreenIntelligence. Condition monitoring permits remote monitoring of the operation of the fans in the condenser and thus early recognition of imbalance caused by dirt, for instance. This makes it possible to avoid bearing damage and so ensure operational reliability. Further advantages offered by condition monitoring include indication of required maintenance work or the automatic de-icing of fans in evaporators by way of heating tapes integrated into the fan housing.Energy-efficient fan operation is thus guaranteed at all times, and there is no risk of the blades freezing to the fan housing.

Fail-safe operation thanks to intelligent interconnection
Modular FanGrid solutions are yet another example of intelligent, interconnected fans. They are primarily employed in situations where redundancy is employed to ensure maximum fail-safe operation. With an appropriate number of fans, the necessary air flow can always be attained even if one fan is out of operation. The speed of the other, interconnected, fans is then automatically increased to compensate for the missing air quantity. EC technology thus permits demand-based, energy-efficient control of an entire installation, and critical – i.e. inefficient – motor speed ranges can be avoided.

GreenIntelligence is self-enhancing
The digital interconnection of all components makes it possible to plan processes more efficiently, detect malfunctioning sooner and optimize the overall interaction of all components. Intelligent control technology means that optimization potential can be recognized and automatically implemented if required. Communication takes place via the MODBUS RTU communication protocol, for example. ebm-papst fans come ready equipped with the appropriate interface.

HB Products

Hall 5, stand 120

With increased focus on the use of natural refrigerants, HB Products has developed a new system for controlling all types of evaporators on refrigeration / heat pump systems.

New Patented Sensor Technology from HB Products solves many of the challenges faced by the designers of Refrigeration-, Cooling- and Heat Pump Systems. With our new groundbreaking technology, it is now possible to measure the dryness of the vapor/gas in the suction at the evaporator exit, and to control the refrigerant supply relative to the evaporator load with zero or minimum superheat. The semi flooded operation ensures optimal efficiency as the entire evaporator area is wet enabling the best possible heat transfer. It also minimizes the volume of the vapor/gas and hence reduces compressor load and power consumption. Current Superheat Evaporator Control is based on pressure and temperature measurements.

Control based on temperature measurement are by experience unstable and should usually have a high superheat at 6 to 10 ̊K to prevent the compressor from getting damaged by refrigerant fluid back (liquid hammering). The HBX-XX sensor is based on the Capacitive measurement principle, directly measuring the phase and dryness of the refrigerant. The sensor reacts instantaneously if the dryness of the gas is changed in the suction outlet. Experi-ence has shown that the entire system is in much better balance with minimum variation in pressure. The new technology makes it possible to directly control the liquid injection to obtain zero superheat and at the same time minimize the risk of liquid fluid back into the compressor.

Savings:

  • Energy ·········· >20%
  • Installation ··· >30%
  • Maintenance >30%

Available in 120 bar high pressure copper type K65 or stainless steel.  6 sensor sizes: 3/8” to 1 1/8” with or without integrated PI and stepper motor control. Pre programmed with Settings for all commonly used refrigerants, incl. CO2.

As the development of smart solutions for condensation advances, the range of table-type and VType remote microchannel units expands:

  • Remote condensers with a capacity range from 13 kW to 476 kW (R404A – DT 15°K);
  • 161 kW modular condenser units (R404A; DT 15°K)
  • 120 kW Liquid Cooler modular units (Glyc.35%; DT 5°K; Ta=25°C).

The arrival of the VTower Adiabatic DryCooler increses Thermokey adiabatic systems range and comes to meet even the most demanding needs for elevated capacities (up to 1960 kW) at reduced  footprints.

The 3 ThermoKey adiabatic systems are:

  1. AFS (Air Fresh System), a water spray system through high pressure nozzles, to solve sporadic capacity peaks
  2. WFS (Wet Fin System), wet fins system, for situations when additional frequent aid is needed.
  3. EPS (Evaporative Panel System) system with wettable panels when high and continuous performance is required.

The VTower is a VType DryCooler of the SuperJumbo family equipped with EPS adiabatic system and its own water and electricity regulation and control system, ideal for continuous use typical in process cooling and data-centre industries.

Among other news, ThermoKey will present its new selection software “Archimede”, thanks to which it is possible to identify the best solution between 1500 Evaporators, 1000 remote condensers and 2000 DryCoolers for a total of over 15 million possible combinations between accessories and other options, including the three ThermoKey adiabatic systems.
