As of March 2021, the planned move away of BOCK from the GEA Group has been completed. Bock now trades as an independent company: BOCK Gmbh.
The brand new LG range comes in seven model sizes with 25 capacity stages specially designed for use with low-GWP HFO refrigerants. The global market launch will take place in October 2020.
The two new F76 and F88 open compressors replaces the outgoing types F14 + F16.
The revised F series uses the new improved mexxFlow® 2.0 valve plate system, which was developed and already in use in GEA Bock’s large semi-hermetic compressors. The second generation shows even greater resistance with a consistent high efficiency. This makes it suitable for the even toughest requirements of marine applications.
For more information, please contact us, or download the GEA Bock F Series brochure here.
The new GEA Bock 6-Cylinder compressor HG66e will be available from mid-February this year.
New partnership for the supply and distribution of reefer unit spare parts and other components.
Southern Sales & Services can now offer GEA Grasso gas screw compressors.
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.
We’re delighted to announce that Southern Sales and Services have relocated to the following address effective 01/01/2018:
20 Monks Brook Industrial Park,
Hampshire, SO53 4RA
Our contact numbers remain the same:
Tel: 023 80261188
Fax: 023 80254054
Finally we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our suppliers and customers a very Happy New Year and we look forward to working with you in 2018.
GEA, the technology group and market leader for commercial compressors for mobile transportation, will be once again showcasing its competence in the mobile air-conditioning segment to visitors at this year’s busworld. The world’s biggest and most renowned trade fair for city busses and coaches will be held in Kortrijk, Belgium from October 20 to 25, 2017. GEA will be featuring proven solutions such as the FKX40/755 K compressor at booth 415 in hall 4.
In introducing the FKX40/755K compressor, GEA is expanding the FK40 series to include a model with a displacement of 755 cc, which delivers up to 15% more output than the next smaller model. The series was designed specifically for bus air-conditioning systems, includes five models and to cover capacities between 385 and 755 cm³. Thanks to its enhanced performance, the FKX40/755K is particularly suitable for use in buses with high cooling demands such as city, articulated, and inter-city buses, as it delivers high performance even at low speeds. This makes it an ideal match for modern diesel engines, which operate at relatively low revs to achieve low emissions. Because all FK40 models have identical dimensions regardless of their displacement, the powerful FKX40/755K features a high power density, meaning that it delivers more power from the same footprint. Equipped with the K valve plate that was specially designed for use in bus air-conditioning systems, the compressor can be fitted with any of the other options of the FK series.
GEA will also be presenting tried-and-tested solutions at busworld, such as the robust, speed-controlled, semi-hermetic HG series, including the HGX34e/380-4 A. GEA is offering one of the most extensive ranges of sustainable and efficient semi-hermetic compressors for airconditioning systems in trolley-, hybrid- and electric buses. The gas-cooled HG series, which is also available in a lightweight aluminum version, is distinguished by low-friction, low-noise operation, easy maintainability, high efficiency and reliability.
From 5th to the 8th of September 2017 in Aberdeen at one of the UK’s largest events dedicated to the oil & gas industry SPE Offshore, GEA will be showcasing its breadth of expertise in the market. We will be presenting our equipment and services from centrifugal separation technology to gas compression solutions right through to refrigeration equipment and solutions and all of its applications.
