The performance data of twelve models in the proven series of BITZER ECOLINE reciprocating compressors have now been certified by ASERCOM – including those developed for use with the new low-GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants R448A and R449A. BITZER was the first compressor manufacturer to completely test, document and integrate both refrigerants in the BITZER software. Users can employ it to choose the best compressor and refrigerant for their systems.

Furthermore, 15 LHE condensing units can now carry the ASERCOM seal of approval for use with the R134a refrigerant. The air cooled condensing units are almost infinitely adjustable and are thus particularly energy efficient, thanks to their integrated capacity control and electronically commutated fans. In addition to this, the mini-channel condenser has been further developed to improve the eco-efficiency of the condensing units even more via small temperature differences at the heat exchanger and a reduction in the refrigerant charge.
By including five additional reciprocating compressors, ASERCOM has now in turn checked the performance data of all BITZER series for subcritical and transcritical CO2 applications and has added them to its list of certified compressors.
