Reciprocating Compressors W-Atex Series: Hydrocarbons application

For over 50 years, Italy’s Euroklimat has designed and manufactured innovative refrigeration products. Since their inception in 1963, they have continued to invest in forward-looking technologies and bring new solutions to the industry.
Now a global leader in the field of natural refrigerant chillers, EK’s products can be found all over the world. Their extensive product line includes air cooled water chillers, heat pumps, water cooled chillers, precision air conditioners and water cooled air conditioners.
Applications range from standard comfort and process cooling and cold storage to manufacturing, data center cooling, extreme environment and aerospace applications. With factories in Italy and China providing 80,000 sqm of manufacturing space, Euroklimat has the flexibility and capacity to meet any customer requirement.
With the F-Gas phase out in progress, customers are looking for compliant solutions that offer maximum efficiency, sustainability and cost savings. With extensive R&D and manufacturing capabilities, Euroklimat is ideally positioned to put their experience to work to meet these evolving needs.

When a client needed an air conditioning solution for a warehouse in Padua, Italy, they turned to Euroklimat. The solution was an outdoor system consisting of two Euroklimat RKO.E 1402 air cooled water chillers totaling 510 kW cooling capacity.
Because of it’s low GWP of 3, and almost no ozone depletion potential, R-290 (propane) was chosen for this application. This system demonstrates how, even for such a high cooling requirement, Propane is a practical alternative to traditional refrigerants.
With safety and efficiency in mind, Euroklimat chose Frascold ’s W series of ATEX certified semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors. With over 80 years’ experience designing and building refrigeration compressors, Frascold has the right compressor for any application.
Safe for use in possibly explosive environments, Frascold’s 8-cylinder W series consists of 11 models with displacement from 142 to 240 m3/h. Frascold’s ATEX compressors are compatible with propane (R290), propylene (R1270) and isobutane (R600a) and comply with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/UE for Zone 2 explosive environment requirements.

Frascold is focused on finding responsible corporate partners and creating sustainable refrigeration solutions. We are proud to continue our tradition of innovation, quality and service as we strive to be the world’s premiere semi-hermetic compressor manufacturer for refrigeration.
