Special feature of semi-hermetic compressors for hydrocarbons
For various applications, such as the field of supermarket refrigeration, hydrocarbons are an established natural refrigerant besides CO2. In that light, GEA Refrigeration Technologies now offers with its GEA Bock HC compressors a low-cost compressor variant especially for the use with hydrocarbons that is based on their semi-hermetic compressor product range.
Due to the flammability of hydrocarbons the compressor has some safety related modifications.
Compressors in HC-design have the following special features:
- Heat protection thermostat as standard
- Oil sump heater as standard
- Special oil charge
- Motor protection MP10 for installation in the switch cabinet
Expanded displacement range
Previously available for displacements between 18.80 to 56.60 m3/h, GEA Refrigeration Technologies has expanded its offering of hydrocarbon semi-hermetic GEA Bock compressors to cover displacements between 5.40 m3/h and 279.80 m3/h.
For detailed information of each model, please go to the GEA Bock HC compressor brochure
Additionally, ATEX compressors for explosion-risk environments are available that can be operated with hydrocarbons as well. You can find more information on these compressors in the GEA Bock ATEX brochure (http://www.bock.de/Data/DocumentationFiles/96227_Bock_ATEX_Compressor_Gb.pdf).
