Düsseldorf (Germany), October 16, 2015 – It's time again: busworld, the world's largest and most renowned specialist trade fair for city buses and coaches, will take place in Kortrijk, Belgium, between October 16–21. GEA will be attending the exhibition again this year, presenting its new FKX40/755 K compressor alongside its proven solutions.
The new compressor is an addition to the proven GEA FK40 series: a model with 755 cm³ capacity offering around 18% more power than the next size down. Specifically designed for bus air-conditioning, the series now has five models to cover capacities of between 385 and 755 cm³. Given its power, the FKX40/755 K is best suited to use in buses with higher cooling requirements – e.g. city, articulated, and inter-city buses – as it ensures high performance even at low speeds. It fits in well with modern diesel engines that travel at relatively low speeds in order to ensure lower emissions. As all FK40 models have the same dimensions regardless of capacity, the powerful FKX40/755 K has a high power density and therefore offers more power in the same space. The FKX40/755 K is equipped with the K-valve plate specifically developed for use in bus air-conditioning and can also be equipped with all other options in the FK series.
GEA will also be presenting proven solutions at busworld, such as compressors from the robust variable-speed semi-hermetic HG series, designed for use in electric and hybrid buses and available with lightweight aluminum housing. Those attending busworld are cordially invited to find out more about the GEA product range for mobile air-conditioning in Hall 4 at Stand 414b.
