A new generation of screw compressors currently being launched on the world market is described. The series is different from other screw compressor designs. By placing the rotors above each other, it has been possible to place the discharge connection at the side and make the compressor lower. In addition, the mass of the compressor is very evenly distributed around the rotors. As a result, the compressor has a very compact design, significantly reducing vibrations and sound level compared with earlier models. The economiser port is movable and integrated with the capacity slide valve, this movable port enables the compressor to maintain an optimal intermediate pressure with a wide operating range. The compressor, thereby, can be used optimally at varying loads, providing higher efficiency even at reduced capabilities. These new solutions appeal to a very large market, including reefer operators.
