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

Danfoss focuses on providing energy efficient, sustainable and smart refrigeration compressors for a varied range of commercial applications such as cold rooms, display windows, ice making machines, glass door merchandisers, process cooling etc. Their qualification with lower GWP refrigerants make them compliant with refrigerant regulations such as F-Gas in Europe.

Designed for refrigeration as well as air-conditioning applications with refrigerants such as R404A and R507A, R407C, R22, but also with lower GWP refrigerants such as R134a, R407A / R407F, R448A, R449A and R452A. 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 available in a wide range of cooling capacities. The hermetic reciprocating compressors are characterized by low energy consumption for optimized running costs, are compact, and provide good acoustic performance to ensure end user and neighbourhood convenience. The refrigeration compressors are UL, VDE, CCC and EAC (Euro Asian Conformity) certified and can be used with refrigerants R134a, R404A/R507A, R407C, R290 and R600a.

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