CSVW.26 goes into mass production

Having received its CE designation and UL certification, BITZER has started to manufacture the environmentally friendly compact screw compressor

The new BITZER CSVW.26 compact screw compressors recently received their CE designation and UL certification and will now be produced on a large scale. Exceptionally light and compact, the CSVW.26 series provides maximum efficiency in water- and air-cooled liquid chillers with low evaporation temperatures as well as in systems with flooded evaporators. They are environmentally friendly and, besides R134a, are compatible with refrigerants and mixtures with a low global warming potential (GWP) such as the HFO substitutes R1234yf and R1234ze(E) as well as the HFO/HFC blends R513A and R450A.

Other strengths of the CSVW.26 compressors are the new rotor profile optimised for R134a and alternative HFO refrigerants, the improved high-efficiency oil separator and automatic Vi adjustment for operation in a wide range of applications. Additionally, the compact screw compressor has a modern, suction gas-cooled permanent-magnet motor that can even operate at high speeds. In light of their outstanding performance under full- and part-load operation, their simple system integration and the use of future-proof refrigerants, systems with CSVW.26 compact screw compressors meet the highest efficiency standards such as the European Ecodesign Directive (tier 2) and Efficiency Grade 1 of the Chinese regulation GB19577:2015
