Reciprocating Compressors

GEA Grasso V XHP

Reciprocating compressors for industrial refrigeration

A high-pressure ammonia reciprocating compressor making the most efficient NH₃ heat pump GEA RedGenium best-in-class.

The GEA Grasso V series stands for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) thanks to less power consumption and maximum reliability. This proven high-efficiency compressor concept is available for heat pump applications.

The GEA Grasso V XHP series can now provide water temperatures up to +95 °C and a larger capacity range with a maximum design pressure of 63 bar. This makes these new models the first choice for all hot water applications up to +95 °C to meet industrial requirements in the food industry and elsewhere, especially for cleaning and processing.

The V XHP will be available in four different types (4; 6; 8 and 10 cylinder). The V XHP is the heart of our successful GEA RedGenium models and also available in a package.

The state-of-the-art GEA Omni control panel with built-in control apps unlocks the sophisticated operating options of the compressor.

In short, the new V XHP is true to its roots in the V series philosophy, which has efficiency in its DNA, but it’s even hotter!
