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.

ATMO Intelligence, the Market Development division of shecco invites air-conditioning and refrigeration stakeholders to participate in a survey that assesses the F-Gas Regulation, sector by sector, while also looking into what should be included in an upcoming revision of the regulation.

Respondents select the sectors they are active in and complete a custom survey based on their interests. “With these results, we will produce a comprehensive report that will be shared with policymakers across the EU to drive more progressive change, particularly in terms of refrigerants and getting rid of harmful gases in all sectors – from transport refrigeration to domestic air conditioning,” said Ilana Koegelenberg, Market Development Manager at shecco.

Once completed, the report will be freely available for download.The survey should take around 15-20 minutes.
