Reed Valves for fully hermetic

refrigeration and air-conditioning compressors

  • Leak-tight and efficient
  • Low noise
  • Leading in the compliance of environmental standards

HOERBIGER is a world market leader for reed valves and reed valve systems. Leading manufacturers of refrigeration and air-conditioning compressors have benefited for many years from our distinct research & development and manufacturing knowledge.

We develop tailor-made solutions for our customers, allowing them to always be a step ahead of the competition. We set standards in areas that matter the most to our customers such as; leakage, efficiency, noise reduction, and compliance with environmental standards.

In addition to components such as reed valves and valve plates, HOERBIGER also offers complete solutions featuring leak-tested assemblies, including cylinder heads.

HOERBIGER supports the development process of its customers at a very early stage. In order to test function and performance capability, we have developed a test program specific to reed valves, which precisely simulates the physical processes in refrigeration and air-conditioning compressors. We employ the latest technologies in prototyping. Based on this expertise, we can produce samples under pre-series conditions for test runs at the customer.
