The success story began with reciprocating compressors

BITZER began making its mark on the industry in as early as the 1930s by manufacturing thermostatic expansion valves out of steel. The company achieved its first international success with reciprocating compressors with a direct current voltage design which would also demonstrate its capacity in Buenos Aires in Argentina in the very same decade. In the 1940s, BITZER began paving the way for its current success as a compressor manufacturer with its open 2-cylinder reciprocating compressors and set additional milestones in the 1950s with hermetic and semi-hermetic compressors.

Innovative design: the first BITZER screw compressors

In the early 1980s, BITZER took the industry by surprise by becoming the first manufacturer to market open and semi-hermetic screw compressors for commercial refrigeration and air conditioning applications which were being manufactured in serial production. As BITZER had gone in entirely new directions in terms of the technical design, it earned its undisputed status as a pioneer, especially with regard to semi-hermetic suction gas cooled screw compressors. At the same time, BITZER was the first manufacturer to provide a system solution as well as components for parallel operation with a common oil separator.
