Why Buying Remanufactured Bitzer 6GE Series Is a Good Choice

Bitzer is one of the best brands when it comes to reliable commercial compressors.

For more than 75 years, German-based Bitzer has been one of the leaders in compressor technology. With several product lines covering both commercial air conditioning and refrigeration applications, it has made a name for itself by combining quality, efficiency, and innovation.

Bitzer has long been known as a brand willing and able to push the envelope with its technology. Recently, it introduced its new line of ammonia compressor packs. As the name implies, these use ammonia as the refrigerant, bypassing the ongoing challenges caused by conventional commercial refrigerants.

The “compressor packs” are so called because they can include up to three compressors, along with a three-stage oil separator and an advanced cooling circuit. This is just one example of the many ways a Bitzer solution aims to go above and beyond what comparable equipment offers.

Of course, you don’t have to adopt a whole new technology to leverage the wisdom of the Bitzer brand. One of the most sought-after Bitzer commercial compressors uses familiar technology and a time-tested architecture to help you get reliable results for 8-10 years.

That is the Bitzer 6GE, a reciprocating piston compressor you can count on.

The Bitzer 6GE Is a Leap Forward in Energy Efficiency and Positive Environmental Impact

Although there are now many different kinds of compressors available on the market, the traditional reciprocating compressor remains popular for a variety of applications. The right piston compressor provides a smaller footprint, lower upfront cost, and is generally easier to source.

Likewise, because piston technology has been around for a long time and enjoyed many iterations, a compressor like the Bitzer 6GE is relatively easy to diagnose and maintain. All you need to do is set out your maintenance schedule, stick to it, and keep the right spare parts on hand.

As a semi-hermetic compressor, the Bitzer 6GE takes serviceability to the next level. You can access the compressor for maintenance without causing any risks to the device when it is in operation. The level of convenience has the potential to add years to the life of your unit.

The Bitzer 6GE is one of the most popular in the relatively new Ecoline range. Ecoline is optimized to improve many of the best features of the past generations of Bitzer compressors, all while using up substantially less power in operation and having fewer points of fault than before.

Some of the top features of the Bitzer 6GE include:

1. High Energy Efficiency

Higher energy efficiency isn’t just good for the environment, it’s also good for your budget. With a Bitzer 6GE in your corner, you can bank on a lower overall cost of ownership. This makes a major difference in any “always on” operational environment, especially if you are working in a warm or hot climate.

2. Smooth Running

One question that always comes up about reciprocating compressors is whether or not they can operate smoothly. Smooth operation leads to less mechanical vibration, extending the life of key components. It also enables a much wider variety of locations to position your compressor without complaint.

3. Wide Range of Applications

The Bitzer 6GE comes from a long line of successful compressors used in demanding environments in all kinds of industries. No matter if you have a hospitality property, grocery store, commercial kitchen, agricultural facility, or even an industrial site, the Bitzer 6GE offers top reliability and output.

4. Flexible Refrigerant Selection

A Bitzer 6GE commercial compressor is compatible with both R134a and R404A refrigerant. You can even switch from one to the other after draining the system of all its existing refrigerant. No matter what you happen to have on hand, you can keep your compressor going.

5. Superior Design and Reliability

Bitzer is one of the most experienced commercial compressor manufacturers around. While some of the leading brands have moved on from reciprocating compressors, the Bitzer models have only gotten to be better and better. If you want a reciprocating compressor, Bitzer is a choice that can’t go wrong.

Remanufactured Commercial Compressors Offer Great Performance at a Reduced Price

For power, reliability, and efficiency all in one, Bitzer will not disappoint.

But you can have all the best qualities of Bitzer at a fraction of the cost.

With a remanufactured commercial compressor, an existing unit receives comprehensive component replacement, cleaning, and testing. This ensures that it meets all the original performance and environmental standards, so you can easily introduce it into your working environment.

Not only is this faster than sourcing a new unit from an OEM-affiliated wholesaler, but it can also mean 10%, 20%, or 30% off. Plus, you’ll reduce your exposure to supply chain dilemmas: An essential part of being “ready for anything” in today’s uncertain world.
