AHX, new semi-hermetic compressors by Frascold

The Italian manufacturer, specialised in commercial and industrial air conditioning and refrigeration compressors, is adding a AHX, new semi-hermetic compressors by Frascoldcomplete new range of reciprocating semi-hermetic compressors to the hydrocarbons21.com product database. The compressor series AHX is optimised for the use with hydrocarbons and features high safety and reliability.

Frascold has developed a new range of reciprocating semi-hermetic compressors suitable for all the most commonly used hydrocarbons like propane R290, propylene R1270 and isobutane R600a. Based on its traditional semi-hermetic compressors, the new AHX range has been technically modified to guarantee the safety standard requested by the ATEX 94/9/EC Directive for the flammability of hydrocarbons in classified areas.

The new AHX series compressors

Hydrocarbons do not have any corrosive effect on copper and can be easily used with semi-hermetic compressors with enclosed electric motors.

AXH reciprocating semi-hermetic compressors are equipped with electrical components conform to the safety requirements necessary for the installation in classified ambient with presence of flammable gas according to ATEX Directives.

With this new AHX compressors line, Frascold enlarges its range of products dedicated to natural refrigerants and takes the growing environmental concerns of the market into consideration by offering innovative solutions. Frascold’s semi-hermetic compressors running on R290 play also a key role in the hydrocarbon refrigeration platform being rolled out by Waitrose’s stores in the UK since 2009.

Main caracteristics different to standard type compressors:

  • Mechanically optimised for use with hydrocarbons
  • Special oil charge
  • Equipotential connection of all electrical components
  • Electrical connection box
  • Crankcase heater
  • PTC sensor for discharge temperature control
  • Electronic oil differential pressure switch
