Bitzer has launched its 2016 EU Eco-design Directive ready ECOSTAR LHV7E condensing unit
Bitzer claims the new ECOSTAR LHV7E provides an air cooled condensing unit that conforms with all EU Directives and offers users unrivalled energy efficiency.
The low-maintenance, easy-to-use device also boasts reliable, low noise operation and simple installation.
Bitzer says the integrated EC fan of the ECOSTAR LHV7E reduces the noise level and energy consumption significantly.
The optimised control allows the user to adjust the speed of the fans and the ECOLINE VARISPEED compressor at any time for more energy-efficient operation.
The optimised mini-channel condenser also improves eco-efficiency: compared to the older ECOSTAR models, the LHV7E requires a lower refrigerant charge while offering higher heat exchange.
Its low noise EC fans feature sound-optimised airflow and the compressor is located inside a sound-damping housing. When the cooling load is normal, the system can be operated in ECO or low-sound mode.
The ECOSTAR LHV7E is available in six variants, four of which offer a capacity of up to 42 kW (0/32/20@R134a).
Depending on the model, it’s compatible with the refrigerants R134a, R404A, R507A, R407A, R407C and R407F, which means BITZER enables a whole host of applications for this condensing unit.
With its compact design, the condensing unit also fits into smaller engine rooms, while the robust housing also makes it suitable for outdoor use.
The integrated winter start feature allows the compressor to be started even in winter when the ambient temperature falls below the saturated suction temperature.
The BITZER LHV7E condensing unit comes standard with an integrated frequency inverter and filter drier.
Optional features include an oil separator with check valve, oil monitoring and an additional check valve for installation in low ambient temperatures.
