refrigeration compressors



    They are an essential component in refrigeration systems since they are in charge of compressing the refrigerant fluid and increasing its pressure and temperature.

    The compressors are the ones that drive the refrigeration process and are the ones that allow the refrigerant fluid to pass from a liquid state to a gaseous state and vice versa, thus allowing the transfer of heat from the cold side to the hot side.

    There are several types of compressors used in refrigeration, including:

    1. Piston Compressors: Piston compressors are the most common in refrigeration systems, they are simple to build and easy to maintain.
    2. Rotary Compressors: Rotary compressors, such as screw compressors and lobe compressors, are more efficient and quieter than reciprocating compressors, but they are more expensive and require more maintenance.
    3. Centrifugal compressors: Centrifugal compressors are used in large capacity refrigeration systems and are very efficient in terms of
