Now available is the 16-inch model of the Cool Compression™ compressor line of single-screw compressors. This series of industrial refrigeration compressors has fewer components, which reduces the amount of maintenance necessary on the unit, states the company. According to the manufacturer, it uses the efficiency of direct contact heat transfer to cool the compressor oil right in the oil separator, which eliminates the need for an oil cooler. The compressor line also reduces carryover and eliminates oil foaming because the liquid ammonia layer in the separator covers the heavier oil, states the company.
