SABROE CMO reciprocating compressor units

Small single-stage compressors with swept volumes of 100–270 m3 /h
CMO compressor units are small units specially designed for use in smaller-scale refrigeration installations where reliability is a particular concern, and uninterrupted service a big priority. They are an economical, low-maintenance solution for smaller-scale, heavy-duty refrigeration installations, and are most commonly used as stand-alone units operating at full load, or as small back-up compressors. Range Six different models are available to provide swept volumes of between 97 and 273 m3 /h.

SABROE HPO/HPC/HPX high-pressure reciprocating compressor units

High-pressure hybrids of CMO and SMC reciprocating compressors, with swept volumes of 100–800 m3 /h

The blocks of the compressor units in the HPO/HPC/HPX range are cast in high-strength ductile iron, making them particularly strong and capable of operating under exceptionally high pressures. This results in condensing temperatures of up to 90°C, and makes HPX and HPO/HPC compressors ideal for use in conjunction with heat pumps and hot water applications, and as an extra “supercharge” stage in traditional ammonia plants. The renowned SABROE high-pressure compressors are ideal for use with either ammonia or CO2 as refrigerant. SABROE high-pressure compressors provide exceptional reliability and big savings on operating costs, because they are based on the high-volume CMO and SMC compressors, and they share the majority of castings and parts.

Key Benefits

  • High coefficient of performance (COP), with excellent performance under part-load conditions
  • Variable-speed drive provides stepless capacity control over the entire operating range
  • Provides exceptionally high condensing temperatures – up to 90°C
  • Designed for easy service access, and repairs can be undertaken in situ, without removing the compressor
  • Optional special oil separator design based on coalescer technology

SABROE TCMO/TSMC two-stage reciprocating compressor units

Two-stage versions of CMO and SMC reciprocating compressors, with swept volumes of 150–1000 m3 /h

SABROE TCMO/TSMC two-stage reciprocating compressors are an economical operating alternative to single-stage compressors in smaller low-temperature refrigeration installations. TCMO/TSMC compressor units are also ideal for mediumsize industrial refrigeration installations that involve a big temperature range, such as freezer installations. Furthermore, these units are easy to customise with intermediate cooling systems. Using a two-stage set-up built together as a single unit helps avoid equipment duplication – and thus reduce costs and save space. Range Eight different models are available to provide swept volumes of between 146 and 1018 m3 /h.

Key Benefits

  • Splitting the temperature lift into two separate stages reduces overall energy consumption
  • Relatively small footprint
  • High coefficient of performance (COP), with excellent performance under part-load conditions
  • Variable-speed drive (optional) provides stepless capacity control over the entire operating range

SABROE SABflex screw compressor units

Small screw compressor units with swept volumes of 160–950 m3 /h

SABROE SABflex screw compressors are specially designed for installations where the requirements for refrigeration capacity vary over time. These smaller-size units are optimised to ensure exceptional part-load performance as well as the best possible energy efficiency. Everything about these units is configured for use with variable-speed drive (VSD), doing away with the traditional capacity slide and ensuring skip-free performance across the entire 1,000–6,000 rpm capacity range. The VSD drive can be mounted on the unit, or separately in an appropriate switchboard room. Range SABflex units are available to provide swept volumes of 160–950 m3 /h at 6000 rpm using a high-speed motor, or 160–570 m3 /h at 3600 rpm using a standard motor.

Key Benefits

  • Stepless, skip-free capacity control ensures that output always matches requirements
  • Consistently high performance at both full and part load
  • Uncomplicated design with fewer moving parts and very low vibration
  • Supports Condition Based Service (CBS) schedules and the SABROE Block Swap Concept
  • Standardised electrical panel and drive line, factory tested prior to delivery

SABROE SAB high-pressure screw compressor units

Variable-speed high-pressure screw compressor units with swept volumes of 100–4200 m3 /hour, for use with ammonia or CO2 as refrigerant

These unique high-pressure compressor units are ideal for large site-built ammonia heat pump installations that condense at either 90°C or 72°C. They are also the ideal choice for larger CO2 systems or low-temperature two-stage freezer installations, such as carbon dioxide–ammonia (R744–R717) cascade refrigeration systems. Using CO2 as refrigerant makes it possible to make big savings on installation, piping and compressor costs because a single compressor unit can replace multiple compressors using traditional refrigerants. SABROE SAB high-pressure screw compressors are specially designed for variable-speed operation and maximum flexibility, doing away with the traditional capacity limitations of slidevalve technology. The capacity range of all SAB models extends from 1000rpm to maximum rpm. The SAB 193, 233, 283 and 355 high-pressure configurations, all ductile iron-cased versions of the large SABROE compressor units, provide substantial base load capacities along with providing exceptional flexibility in frequency converter operation. This ensures the robustness and reliability derived from the thousands of compressors in long-term service in refrigeration plants worldwide.
