ECOLINE+: smart and efficient cooling for supermarkets
ECOLINE+, the latest reciprocating compressor series from BITZER, is available as 4- and 6-cylinder version for CO2 applications and is particularly suitable for supermarket applications. ECOLINE+ was developed with line start permanent magnet motors, which provide double efficiency benefits due to increased motor efficiency and thus reduced heat transfer into the refrigerant. This motor technology enables the compressors to achieve an up to 14 per cent higher SEPR (annual performance factor).
ECOLINE reciprocating compressors for supermarket refrigeration and distribution warehouses
BITZER ECOLINE reciprocating compressors are highly energy-efficient both in full and part load and are designed for a very wide range of applications going beyond supermarket applications. One advantage of the series: it offers maximum freedom in the choice of refrigerant. Whether new low-GWP mixtures, HFO refrigerants such as R1234yf, R1234ze(E) or natural refrigerants – with BITZER reciprocating compressors, users find a suitable solution for every requirement. The ECOLINE series also includes the ME compressor series, which was especially designed for subcritical CO2 applications with high standstill pressures up to 100 bar. BITZER has now supplemented this series with two 6-cylinder models. With 54 m³/h and 64.9 m³/h delivery volume at 50 Hz, the two larger models are particularly suitable for large refrigeration systems in hypermarkets and distribution warehouses.
ECOLITE: flexible use for medium and low temperature refrigeration
The ECOLITE LHL3E and LHL5E condensing units open up a wide range of applications from 1.5 kW to 5 kW in the low temperature range and from 3.5 kW to 16 kW in the medium temperature range. One of their great advantages: Each of these models can be used for different applications and refrigerants. For the first time, BITZER is now also exhibiting ECOLITE in a version for low-GWP refrigerants of the A2L category at a trade fair – and thus a future-proof solution for refrigerants with a GWP below 150. The design of the condensing units ensures that their components are easily accessible and can be serviced quickly and easily if necessary. With all ECOLITE models, users enjoy the option of quick installation and commissioning thanks to the user-friendly controller with BEST software.
OS.A95 screw compressors: efficient, powerful and universally applicable
With its energy-efficient OS.A95 screw compressor series, BITZER offers a climate-friendly and powerful solution especially in the field of ammonia applications for large cooling capacities. The wide application limit diagram of the series in combination with the automatic Vi adjustment allows the efficient use of OS.A95 in air conditioning, refrigeration and low temperature systems. The further developed rotor profiles and the generous flow cross-sections in the compressor also contribute to an efficient operation. Furthermore, the integrated IQ module simplifies compressor operation, control and monitoring. The series includes the universal models of the OSKA series for all applications and the OSNA series for specific low temperature applications.
The BITZER Digital Network (BDN) offers users digital services for refrigeration and air conditioning technology. In the future, BITZER will also make these services available to large IoT platforms. The specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology presents its components for modern supermarket refrigeration at its stand D59 in Hall 17 at EuroShop.
The BITZER Digital Network (BDN) is a cloud-based online platform with which BITZER helps its customers to master the challenges of digitalization. It offers comprehensive compressor information and analyses based on real-time data and BITZER's refrigeration know-how earned in decades. With the first-time integration into the cloud of a major provider, BITZER proves the cloud-to-cloud capability of its BDN. This solution is precisely tailored to the requirements of large supermarket chains with integrated systems. Using the BDN, they can monitor refrigeration systems as a whole as well as individual components. This makes it much easier and faster to find errors.
Integrated in large retail platform A new feature is the integration of the BDN in a large retail platform. The provider has developed the cloud specifically for the retail industry. The aim is to exploit the full potential of the Internet of Things in retail and avoid silo solutions. The provider is one of the leading providers of solutions around the Internet of Things.
BITZER customers will find valuable digital services such as online monitoring, compressor operation report and immediate help with troubleshooting in the BDN. The basis for this are the IT infrastructure, the know-how and the IQ products of BITZER. In combination with targeted data analysis, this results in a solution that is new on the market and makes it easier for BITZER customers and partners to set up their own digital service infrastructure.
As an independent specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology, BITZER is present all over the world – with products and services for refrigeration, air conditioning, process cooling, heat pumps and transport. BITZER products cater for exceptionally eco-efficient refrigeration systems and are designed for the latest low-GWP refrigerants like CO2, HFO/HFO blends, ammonia and hydrocarbons.
