Reciprocating compressors for industrial refrigeration

With the GEA Grasso V reciprocating compressor series, GEA heralds the start of a completely new era for the industrial refrigeration market. During the development of the GEA Grasso V series, GEA continually puts itself in the position of the end user. Every component was assessed for the most important elements that contribute to a low Total Cost of Ownership like energy, maintenance and reliability with minimum downtime. The result is not only the most efficient reciprocating compressor on the market, but also a compressor with electronically controlled service intervals (extended as well as flexible) in order to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership without jeopardizing reliability. This GEA Grasso V exists of a complete single stage and two stage series in a swept volume range from 217 up to 1,592 m³⁄𝗁.
