F2 to F5 and F14 Production update
Dear Customers and Business Partners,
Since July 2017 due to insolvencies at several of our suppliers we have experienced substantial delivery restrictions that has had a detrimental effect on the open type compressors F2 to F5 and F14. We have tried to relocate the affected parts to other suppliers but unfortunately this has failed due to both capacity issues and the unacceptable high costs of new equipment, tools and qualification.
Therefore, unfortunately we have to inform you that the compressor range F2 to F5 and F14 are no longer available from today. We cannot confirm any new orders, all orders that have already been confirmed will be fulfilled.
We endeavour to maintain the supply of the spare parts but at present this is not fully manageable.
As a replacement for compressor F2 to F5 you could consider our open type vehicle compressors FK20 to FK50, you may also consider from our semi hermetic range the HG22e to HG56e. Please see below comparison data for available replacement compressors…
As a replacement for compressor F14 you could consider the new F76 series which will be available from Q3 / 2018. We will of course keep you informed of any further developments on this. You may also consider as replacement of the F14 from our semi hermetic range compressors HG56e/1155 and HG6/1410. Please see below comparison data for available replacement compressors…
Due to dimensions, mounting and connection sizes as well as the different housing materials (FK20 to FK50 is aluminium) these replacement options must be checked and approved by you the customer, of course you can contact our sales team and they will assist you with any questions you may have.
We would like to mention that the larger compressors F16 and F88 are not affected.
