Hubbard CO2 condensing units with rotary compressor


Reliable and energy-saving food refrigeration

Hubbard CO2 condensing units with rotary compressor

Refrigeration specialist Hubbard Products, Ltd. will present its broad product portfolio at Euroshop 2020, including CO2 condensing units with rotary compressor. The highest demands are made in terms of operational safety, energy efficiency and sustainability when it comes to the careful storage of food. High-quality and reliable systems are therefore the key to success. With the new, particularly compact condensing units (models MT and LT), available with power outputs ranging from 1.5 kW to 24 kW, Hubbard offers a comprehensive solution for reliable food refrigeration.

CO2 refrigerant – ideal properties for food refrigeration

With a GWP (GWP = Global Warming Potential) of 1, natural refrigerant CO2 is particularly climate-friendly and also works more efficiently than other refrigerants thanks to its high volumetric cooling capacity. Positive thermodynamic properties such as low viscosity, high thermal conductivity, high vapour density and classification in safety class A1 as a non-toxic and non-flammable refrigerant, make CO2 the ideal refrigerant for food refrigeration.

Energy-saving and quiet operation

The 2-stage rotary compressor is specially designed for CO2 refrigerant and makes for quiet and energy-saving operation. The Hubbard CO2 condensing units, which work with inverter technology, adjust the refrigeration capacity to the actual demand. The inverter reduces system start-up times, enabling the required temperature to be reached quicker. As soon as the correct temperature is reached, the inverter ensures that it is maintained constantly. By maintaining a constant speed, inverter technology reduces energy consumption by 30% compared to a conventional ON/OFF system. The built-in EC fans also work very efficiently and quietly. Hubbard condensing units are eco-design compliant.

Easy and flexible installation

Designed as plug & play solutions, the systems are delivered ready for installation and commissioning and are therefore particularly quick and easy to install. This reduces installation costs as well as the risk of incorrect installation. The built-in oil separator allows great flexibility during installation and provides high operational reliability.
