Danfoss Unveils Powerful CO2 Compressor for Industrial Refrigeration and Heat Pumps

Danish engineering giant Danfoss has released a new compressor, the HGX56 CO2 T, specifically designed for industrial refrigeration and heat pump applications. This new model boasts a larger capacity, promising improved efficiency and performance while remaining environmentally friendly.

The HGX56 CO2 T utilizes CO2 (R744) as a refrigerant, a natural and sustainable alternative to traditional options with a lower global warming potential (GWP). This aligns with Danfoss’ commitment to environmentally responsible solutions and addresses the growing demand for eco-friendly cooling and heating systems.

The key highlight of the HGX56 is its increased capacity. With a 6-cylinder design, it can deliver up to 135 kW for cooling and 360 kW for heating, surpassing the capabilities of previous models. This translates to the potential to reduce the number of compressors needed in a system, simplifying the design and potentially lowering overall costs.

“This new compressor offers a powerful and optimized solution for demanding industrial applications,” said Vikas Anand, vice president of Danfoss Climate Solutions sales in North America. “By combining its larger capacity with strong performance, the HGX56 CO2 T can help customers reduce system complexity and investment costs while maintaining environmental responsibility.”

Beyond its increased capacity, the HGX56 boasts several additional benefits:

  • High efficiency: Danfoss claims the compressor delivers exceptional efficiency, contributing to lower energy consumption and operational costs.
  • Low noise and vibration: The design prioritizes quiet operation, making it suitable for noise-sensitive environments.
  • Compact and lightweight: Despite its larger capacity, the HGX56 maintains a compact footprint and lightweight design, simplifying installation and maintenance.
  • Minimal oil carry-over: This feature ensures cleaner system operation and potentially extends the lifespan of heat exchangers and other components.

The launch of the HGX56 CO2 T represents Danfoss’ ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability in the refrigeration and heat pump industry. With its strong performance, increased capacity, and focus on eco-friendly refrigerants, this new compressor holds promise for diverse industrial applications, from cold storage facilities to large-scale heat pump systems.
