New ORBIT 6 scroll compressor series
BITZER at Chillventa, October 9-11, 2012, Hall 4, Booths 310 and 408
- High-efficiency compressors for air conditioning systems and heat pumps
- Compact with a wide range of applications
- Optimised for lowest possible annual operating costs
- Extremely low noise levels
Thanks to the new ORBIT 6 scroll compressors, BITZER is expanding its range with a cooling capacity of between 27 and 51 kW at 50 Hz and climatic conditions. The five models in the scroll series with a delivery rate of between 20 and 38 m3/h (50 Hz) boast high isentropic efficiency levels over a wide range of applications and low noise levels. This makes the ORBIT 6 compressors specifically qualified for use in air conditioning systems and heat pumps.
The design of the compressor is based on the R410A refrigerant. The compact construction of the new series results from the special execution of the Oldham coupling. Likewise, ORBIT 6 sets new standards with low noise performance previously unattainable in this performance class.
All compressors are designed for HVAC applications with condensing temperatures up to 68°C, as well as for heat pump applications including extreme operating conditions of -20°C/+50°C. This makes ORBIT 6 the compressor series with the widest application range. BITZER delivers the ORBIT 6 scroll compressors in five capacity steps with 10, 12, 13, 15, and 20 hp.
ORBIT 6 compressors are consistently designed for high energy efficiency in full and part-load conditions such as those resulting from the highly variable load and ambient conditions in climatic and heat pump applications. This results in very high EER, ESEER/IPLV, and SCOP values, leading to especially low annual operating costs. The compressors can be mounted directly onto corresponding mounting rails in connector systems. BITZER provides the appropriate mounting kits in the product range.
