HG HC compressors for hydrocarbons

HG HC Compressors

HG HC compressors for hydrocarbons

Special features

Based on our current semi-hermetic product range GEA Bock offers an alternative compressor variant especially for the use with hydrocarbons (R290/R1270).

Compressors in HC-design have the following features:

  • Durable driving gear 
  • Thermal protection thermostat (recommended) 
  • Oil sump heater (neccessary) 
  • Special oil charge 
  • Motor protection INT69 G for installation in the switch cabinet 
  • Optimised for all hydrocarbon requests 

We would like to explicitly state that those compressors are a special edition and the compressors filled with hydrocarbons are to be operated by trained specialists only. Please see assembly instructions for additional important instructions. To ensure the safety measures, an additional agreement, hydrocarbons as refrigerant (GEA Bock Art. No. 09996) has to be signed.

Think green, choose blue.
