Compressors are usually designed for the maximum required cooling or heating capacity during system planning. In reality, however, the systems run only in the partial load range for a large proportion of their operating time. For this reason, it makes sense to adapt the compressor capacity to the current load.
New: BOCK have announced a new series of transcritical BOCK CO2 semi hermetic compressors, equipped with LSPM motor technology (Line Start Permanent Magnet). These offer a number of advantages for users including higher efficiency, extended capacity and lower operating costs.
Bock are changing their range of condensing units to meet ErP regulation (eco-design), and as a result the fans have also been changed to use exclusively use highly efficient AC fans in their air-cooled condensing units.
Released earlier this year, the latest transcritical CO₂ compressor in the BOCK CO₂ range. The new HGX12 CO₂ T series is designed very specifically for small capacity ranges.
FOCUS ON THE FUTURE: NATURAL REFRIGERANTS
It is more than obvious that the world climate is constantly changing. Our planet is getting hotter and hotter and in our digital world we can observe these effects every day.
Our industry must also face up to this responsibility. Already today, 15% of the world’s electricity consumption is used for refrigeration and air conditioning. The way we deal with cold will therefore become increasingly important.
BOCK has been developing compressors for the natural refrigerant CO2 (R744) since 1993. Their compressor range for hydrocarbons (HC) has the best reputation worldwide. And in the synthetic refrigerant sector, they invest all their expertise in the further development of compressors with low-GWP refrigerants.
True to the motto “Think green – choose blue”!
As a leading compressor manufacturer, Bock knows what your compressor needs to keep everything running like clockwork. For a long service life, wear protection, conservation of resources with increased efficiency and the best performance for your Bock compressor, they have developed a perfectly fitting compressor oil and launched it on the market: BOCKlub.
Thanks to the optimised drive units in the BOCK HC compressor series for hydrocarbon refrigerants, the operating limits for R290 and R1270 could be significantly extended, offering more efficiency and performance in heat pump applications.
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.
