Hermetic reciprocating compressors are different from structurally related types like the semi-hermetic (motor and compression mechanics form a unit) and open reciprocating compressors (motor separate from the compression mechanics) in that they have a sealed design.
In a hermetic reciprocating compressor, as a result of the perfect hermetic sealing of the refrigeration circuit on the compressor body, unlike the two alternative variants – there are no refrigerant leaks possible.
Hermetic reciprocating compressors are the most commonly used compressors in the refrigeration market. This is primarily due to the fact that nearly all compressors in white goods are hermetic reciprocating compressors.
But there is also a preference for these types of compressors in commercial refrigerating systems. They are suitable for air conditioning, cold rooms or low temperature applications, the technology is very reliable, and they come in many different designs for all common refrigerants.
You can find all series of hermetic compressors with various brand in our product portfolio.
