Reciprocating Compressor Systems

GEA Grasso V HS

High speed reciprocating compressors for more capacity

GEA’s industrial reciprocating compressors stand for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) thanks to less power consumption and maximum reliability. This proven concept is now also available at higher speed.

It offers a higher refrigeration capacity against a lower investment. The speed increase provides clients with a significant increase in capacity. Because of the proportional correlation of compressor speed, swept volume and resulting capacity, 25 % more capacity can now be gained using the same models. That returns a significant improvement (reduction) of the relative price as in Kilowatts per Euro. Alternatively, users with a specific, fixed capacity requirement can benefit from the higher speeds by allowing them to achieve the capacity demands with smaller compressor equipment meaning less investment and less service expenses Compressors at higher speeds offer significant savings potentials for your Total Cost of Ownership, reduced footprint and CO2 emissions.

Highlights and technical features

  • Increased capacity. providing more capacity, reducing investment costs
  • Extended speed range up to 1,500 rpm
  • Reduced fooprint, using smaller compressors at higher speed
  • Environment-friendly, zero GWP (Global Warming Potential) due to exclusive use of the natural refrigerant NH₃ (ammonia)

GEA RT Select – our selection and configuration program will help you to find the right equipment for your refrigeration and heating plant.
