regulating capacity easy & flexibly
Sustainable COâ‚‚ applications
CapaFlexâ„˘ saves energy and cost
HOERBIGER CapaFlexâ„˘ is a mechanical capacity control unit for sustainable COâ‚‚ refrigeration applications. The Swiss industrial group unveiled the innovation at the 2016 Chillventa - a leading international exhibition for the refrigeration, heat pumps, and ventilation sector. CapaFlexâ„˘ offers great benefit for the customer, allowing stepless mechanical control of COâ‚‚-operated refrigeration systems. Operators save energy, while also benefitting from low installation and maintenance costs.
Refrigeration systems must be energy-efficient, easy and flexible to operate, and run reliably and without downtime. Due to the high pressure present in COâ‚‚-operated refrigeration systems, it was previously not possible in these applications to use mechanical capacity control units that meet the requirements of the market.
With the HOERBIGER CapaFlexâ„˘ system, HOERBIGER has now developed the first mechanical stepless capacity control unit that can also be used in transcritical COâ‚‚ systems.
The HOERBIGER CapaFlexâ„˘ system lowers the operator's costs, both in terms of energy consumption and when it comes to installation and maintenance. The new system also ensures failure-free operation of the refrigeration equipment: in the event of a malfunction, the compressor continues to operate at full power, keeping the cold chain intact at all times.
