Built with the highest quality standards

Danfoss H-series scroll compressors are manufactured using the most advanced machining, assembly, and process control techniques. The highest standards of quality were the first priority when designing the H-series compressors. These high standards resulted in an incredibly efficient product with the highest possible reliability, all while operating at a low sound level.

With no threaded fasteners, half the hermetic welds, and one-third fewer parts than competitor models, Danfoss H-series scroll compressors install quickly and easily. All H-series compressors feature a design with minimal internal parts, decreasing the overall weight and reducing operation noise by up to three decibels compared to similar competitor models. With liquid and suction line connections and a bolt pattern that align with those of other major scroll compressor manufacturers, Danfoss scroll compressors can be drop-in replacements for compressors made by nearly any company.

Danfoss H-series scroll compressors operate equally well in either cooling or heat pump applications. With high energy savings and low environmental impact, H-series compressors are the perfect solution to meet today's high expectations, especially in the renovation sector.
