GEA Purger

Refrigeration systems must be kept free from non-condensable gases that can inhibit their performance and increase energy consumption. The most effective way of doing this is by automatic purging which responds immediately to any unwanted gases entering the system, such as air inside the liquid receiver.

The GEA Purger starts automatically when the concentration of these non-condensable gases exceeds 2 %, and stops when the concentration drops to below 1 %.

The purger operates independently from the main refrigeration system and is suitable for in- as well as outdoor installation. It comprises an integrated, low temperature refrigeration cycle, including a hermetic compressor and an air-cooled condenser, using the environmentally-friendly natural refrigerant R290 (propane).
