7.2.5   Coolant compressors
Presently there is a marked trend among coolant compressors away from piston compressors toward scroll compressors. The benefits of scroll compressors are obvious:
  • Fewer moving parts, therefore fewer repairs needed
  • Fully air-tight construction, therefore less coolant loss
  • Significantly lighter weight and more compact design, making handling easier when exchanging the compressor and increasing the loading capacity of the container
  • Develops less noise
