Energy efficient, sustainable, and smart refrigeration compressors for a variety of applications

Designed for use with a wide range of refrigerants, Danfoss Maneurop reciprocating compressors cover requirements in the 1kW to 20kW (1.5–26 HP) range.

Dedicated to light commercial applications, Danfoss light commercial reciprocating refrigeration compressors are characterized by low energy consumption, a compact design, and quiet operation. UL certified, these compressors can be used with refrigerants R134a, R404A/R507A, R407C, R290, and R600a.

Engineered for efficiency, Danfoss scroll compressors suit a wide range of operating conditions in different cooling systems, including vapor injector and some models are available with liquid injection, delivering even greater capacities and efficiency.

Specializing in DC applications such as mobile, solar, and telecom cooling, DC compressors are perfect for cooling needs from 7 to 800 W - 1/4 HP with a single compressor, 1.6 kW with twin compressors.

  • The Danfoss series of light commercial compressors with black shells  for commercial refrigeration applications
    Light commercial compressors

    Light commercial reciprocating compressors for low, medium, and high temperatures.

  • The Danfoss line of MTZ/MT/NTZ compressors
    MTZ/MT/NTZ reciprocating compressors

    Maneurop® MT, MTZ, and NTZ hermetic reciprocating compressors by Danfoss are designed for low-, medium-, and high-temperature applications. Compressors are available for a wide range of applications, refrigerants, and operating conditions and future-proven, built-in performance enhancers and safety measures.

  • The Danfoss VTZ reciprocating inverter VTZ compressor
    Reciprocating inverter - VTZ

    Danfoss reciprocating inverter compressors avoid oversized and short cycling systems. The compressor automatically adapts to the current load. By combining an efficient Danfoss Maneurop® reciprocating compressor with a Danfoss Drive, we provide an innovative and intelligent package that utilizes variable-speed technology to ensure superior efficiency across the entire operating range for precision cooling.
