Compressors Components

The compressor removes heat through the evaporator and is the most energy-consuming element.

Great improvements have been made through the development of variable speed compressors. To ensure optimum efficiency, a compressor should be set to the lowest condensing temperature possible and suction pressure should be kept as low as possible.

Reported energy savings of 35% when compared with standard efficiency series of R-404A.

Cubigel U range offers R290 and R600a models for LBP and HMBP applications suchs as icre cream conservators, freezers and bottle coolers. R290 compressors offer a higher cooling capacity and COP, allowing energy-saving consumption with smaller displacement. The major environmental benefits are obtained combining the use of the R290 with the design criteria of our high efficiency range compressors. These compressor models, in their more advanced versions, can save up to 35% of energy when compared with standard efficiency series of R404A, thanks to very flexible asynchronous motors that can adjust to different energy consumption levels by connecting, or not, a permanent capacitor.
