Eco-friendly excellence: BOCK® semi-hermetic CO₂ compressors

Danfoss BOCK® compressors are the global choice for essential components in commercial and industrial refrigeration, including air conditioning, cooling, heating, heat recovery, and heat pumps. We're committed to a sustainable future by embracing natural refrigerants like CO2 (R744).

Our dedication to environmental responsibility drives the continuous development of efficient and reliable CO2 compressors. This guarantees peak plant efficiency while minimizing investments, energy, and operating costs. Count on maximum operational reliability and runtime, securing your sustainable refrigeration needs.

Features and benefits of HGX CO₂ compressors:

Versatile applications: suitable for a wide range of applications, from cooling in supermarkets and industrial setups to air conditioning systems in transportation

Flexibility: transcritical and subcritical CO2 compressors have a broad capacity range, allowing for adaptable cooling and heating capacities to meet specific needs

High-pressure expertise: special LT* variant designed for subcritical applications with high operating and standstill pressures

Specialized solutions: offers ideal compressors like the HGX12 CO2 T, HGX24 CO2 T, and LT series for smaller performance requirements

Environmental responsibility: supports energy efficiency and environmental standards like the European F-Gas Regulation and the global Kigali Agreement

Comprehensive compliance: meets strict European standards and ASERCOM directives for quality and safety

Transcritical CO₂ compressors - Unmatched efficiency and reliability

Four model sizes-program—HGX12 CO2 T, HGX24 CO2 T, HGX34 CO2 T, and HGX46 CO2 T—featuring 19 displacement stages from 1.7 to 38.2 m³/h (50 Hz) that set industry standards. These transcritical models offer wide operating limits and frequency ranges, allowing tailored solutions for diverse applications.

Their optimized efficiency leads to the highest EER/COP values in their category, as officially certified by ASERCOM (Association of European Refrigeration Component Manufacturers) for multiple displacement stages. Furthermore, these reciprocating compressors are known for their unrivaled reliability and durability.

Cooling capacity 3-85 kW / Heating capacity 9-182 kW - LP/HP: 100/150 bar.

Subcritical and LT CO₂ compressors - Ideal for low-temperature needs

Designed for low-temperature applications, the program includes four subcritical models with 17 displacements from 1.6 to 49.2 m³/h (50 Hz): HGX12e CO2, HGX22e CO2, HGX34e CO2, and HGX44e CO2. They're optimized for CO2 conditions and offer versatile solutions with exceptional reliability and durability.

For specific low-temperature requirements with evaporating temperatures from -50°C to 0°C and condensing temperatures up to 25°C, we offer an efficient LT variant designed for subcritical CO2 systems with high standstill pressures (LP 100 bar), available in two motor versions (ML and S) to accommodate a wide frequency band and extended operating limits.

Cooling capacity 2.7-90 kW - LP/HP 40 (30)/55 bar.
