The GEA compressors of the hydrocarbon series meet all the requirements of the F-gas regulation. They can be used for the long-term and therefore increase the planning dependability for system manufacturers, users and investors. Due to the flammability of hydrocarbons the compressors and the systems need safety related modifications.
HG HC compressors for hydrocarbons
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:
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.
7 model sizes with 25 capacity stages from 5.4 to 281.3 m³/h (50 Hz)
HG88e HC available as from Q3/2019

Additionally, ATEX compressors are available that can be operated with hydrocarbons as well.
Semi-hermetic HA compressors are primarily used for deep-freezing. Suction gas intake is done directly into the compressor. Motor is cooled by an integrated ventilation unit.
Based on GEA compressors of the Pluscom series with their outstanding advantages and features, more powerful models with 2-pole drive motor are available for mobile use.
Based on GEA compressors of the Pluscom series with their outstanding advantages and features, light construction models made completely of aluminium are available for mobile use.
GEA is the first European manufacturer to offer semi-hermetic compressors conforming to ATEX-/ IECEx zone 1 and 2.
This series offers the advantages of a time-tested compressor series that has been optimally adapted to the demands of CO2.
The compressors are distinguished by high reliability, excellent operating performance, wide frequency band for minimum part-load needs and previously unachievable efficiency standards in the market – confirmed officially through ASERCOM.
The HG model series consists of state-of-the-art classical suction gas-cooled compressor technology. Assurance of effective lubrication by an oil pump, application of exchangeable electrical motors, as well as manufacture of very solid and rugged compressors is ensured. For new advancements in efficiency, GEA has now updated its entire HG range of semi-hermetic compressors.
Based on the 6-cylinder compressor HG7, a selection of two-stage variants is available for extended use in intense cooling. The selection of the liquid intercooler unit is available for three different refrigerants: R404A (R507), R410A and R22.
