CHICAGO - A new highly efficient, reliable, low noise refrigeration scroll compressor range has been added to the Danfoss line, says the company. MLZ compressors include 11 models of medium temperature scroll compressors designed for ice machines, soft serve ice cream machines, cold rooms, milk cooling tanks, and other light commercial refrigeration applications.

According to Danfoss, the MLZ’s hybrid wrap scroll design increases compressor displacement to provide higher capacity without increasing package size. Adaptive axial scroll member compliance increases efficiency by minimizing losses due to friction. The design provides a soft start so that, in most applications, no start capacitor is needed.
