The Bitzer Ecoline reciprocating compressor was selected as the "Refrigeration Product of the Year" winner at the ACR Expo in February by an independent panel of industry experts. It was recognized for its energy efficiency and for being an environmental solution in refrigeration applications compatible with refrigerants such as R134a, R404A, R407A, R407C, R407F, R507A, R290 and R1270.
Kevin Glass, managing director of Bitzer UK, accepted the award at the ceremony held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, England, during the 2014 ACR Show. ‘We are delighted to receive this industry award. Energy efficiency and versatility in applications are key features of many of our products and these attributes are epitomized in our Ecoline compressors, which have been widely accepted since their introduction”, says Glass.
With displacements ranging from four to 221 m3/hr, the Ecoline series offers high efficiency and is suitable for all standard refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump applications, according to the company.
