Bitzer wins Refrigeration Product of the Year

The 2019 ACR News Awards saw the Refrigeration Product of the Year accolade go to Bitzer for its Ammonia Compressor Pack (ACP).

Bitzer's Ammonia Compressor Pack.

The award was presented to Bitzer during the ACR News Awards ceremony, which brought together an audience of leading contractors, manufacturers and end users at London’s Tower Hotel. 

The judges said ACP’s modular design allowed contractors to quickly connect units on site with a few simple pipework and electrical connections, dramatically speeding up the whole process of installation and commissioning. 

Launched in 2016, the modular range of high efficiency ammonia packs has been enthusiastically received by end users and contractors in the UK, with some ground-breaking projects leading something of a global renaissance in the use of ammonia. 

The packs offer exceptional part-load efficiency, outstanding resilience – with a back-up compressor in the unlikely event of a failure, and rapid commissioning due to the plug-and-play design. Crucially, ACP offers factory-controlled conditions to ensure the highest standards of manufacturing for safety and leak tightness in the field.

Kevin Glass, managing director of Bitzer UK, said: “Ammonia refrigeration systems have traditionally been built as one-offs, often in less than ideal conditions. Bitzer is able to build ACP units in a pristine factory environment, ensuring the highest possible quality and integrity absolutely necessary when working with ammonia.

“We believe ACP meets the requirement for very high efficiency cooling of industrial and large-scale commercial applications with a zero global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, with the added bonus of a modular plug-and-play design for ease and speed of installation and servicing.”
