SINDELFINGEN, Germany, 23 April 2020: Bitzer won the 2020 HVACR Trust Award in the condensing units category, the company announced through a Press release, adding that it won in the same category in the 2017 edition.
Andreas Riesch, Director of Sales (Germany and Switzerland), Bitzer, said: “At this award, industry representatives such as contractors, expert planners and operators of refrigeration systems are the ones to evaluate and vote – and this is what makes the award all the more valuable for us. For the second time now, it shows us how much our customers appreciate and trust us. Since the first vote of the Trust Award, three years ago, we have added the ECOLITE series to our portfolio of condensing units. We are all the more pleased that it, too, seems to satisfy our customers to a high degree.”
According to the release, the organisers of the Award gave away trophies in 14 different categories pertaining to refrigeration and air conditioning technology, ventilation as well as air ducting, building automation and fire protection. The participants voted on all aspects of consulting, technology and recommendability of the products and their manufacturers, the release said.
According to the release, Bitzer’s ECOSTAR condensing units offer efficient performance through intelligent technology. The specific unit controller, the system-optimised mini-channel condenser and the infinitely variable operation of the speed-controlled ECOLINE VARISPEED reciprocating compressor and the EC fans allow for future-oriented planning, the release said. The medium-capacity segment and most standard applications are covered by the ECOLITE condensing units, Bitzer said through the release, adding that all seven ECOLITE models offer a wide range of applications from 1.5 kW to 5 kW in the low-temperature range and from 3.5 kW to 16 kW in the medium-temperature range. Compressors with the quasi-stepless VARISTEP capacity control, Bitzer said, are in use here. In addition, the compressors will be approved for operation with R1234ze or R1234yf in the course of this year, Bitzer said. The LHE condensing unit series, the company said, also works efficiently and is available with the ECOLINE compressors or with the two-stage compressors of the second generation.
