BITZER ROADSTAR 4GFC(Y) COMPRESSOR: UNIQUE AIRCO FOR BUSES
According to the manufacturer it is a four-cylinder model with the capacity of a six-cylinder. The new compressor is of the reciprocating type and manufactured since last year in the Bitzer locations Schkeuditz and Beijing.
The new machine is more compact, lighter and yet more efficient than comparable models: the four-cylinder Roadstar 4GFC(Y) reciprocating compressor for mobile applications has a unique displacement of 744 cubic centimeters. It’s also around 18 percent lighter and much more compact than six-cylinder compressors with a comparable capacity, making the four-cylinder ideal for use in mobile applications where weight and space play a key role.
Bitzer has also developed a new range of scroll compressors. They are significantly lighter and more compact, with the same or even improved performance. Bitzer’s new ELV21 and ELV51 Speedlite scroll compressors set standards for mobile applications. Despite their smaller size, they offer outstanding efficiency and flexibility. This is due to their modern aluminium design and the ideal combination of scroll spirals, electric motor and frequency inverter. All three components are now integrated into one compact system.
Both developments were shown at the recent Busworld exhibition.
