Bitzer unveil new refrigeration app

GERMANY – The German-based compressor specialist company Bitzer have today announced that they have just finished overhauling their free app. The German company timed the launch of their revamped app to coincide with the Chillventa trade show which is currently taking place in Nuremberg from the 11th to the 13th of October. Bitzer have stated that their ambition for the relaunched app is for it to become the new digital refrigerant reference tool for iOS and Android smartphones.

Bitzer claim that their recently updated 2016 refrigerant app now comes equipped with a user-friendly and straightforward interface, after the company’s design engineering specialists overhauled the original app, which was first developed by Bitzer US in 2010. The latest version of the app combines new functions with a fresh design, while the app’s intuitive operation should make it simpler to read the saturation temperatures and pressures of various refrigerants.

Other new features in the updated app include the display of dew point and boiling point temperatures for refrigerants with temperature glide and convenient filter functions, such as listing those natural refrigerants and refrigerants with low global warming potentials (GWP). Bitzer have also disclosed that the app will allow users to access the company’s new refrigerant report.

Commenting on the original version of the app, Julian Pfaffl, the head of Product Performance at Bitzer, stated that “Bitzer US was on the ball back in 2010, as it was high time for a digital refrigerant reference tool. At that time, the employees knew that the app had to be one thing above all else: user-friendly. After all, it needed to be a tool that people enjoyed using.”

Pfaffl continued, outlining the reasons behind the updated version of the app, explaining  “And that still applies today. We felt obligated to ensure this was the case as we reworked the program.”

Pfaffl concluded the launch of the refrigerant app by revealing that the latest version of the app was available for download from all stores.
