|The current delivery |
situation and new prices
from July 2021
|Please be prepared for longer delivery times and price adjustments from July 2021!|
... even though the pleasing development of incidence values in our region makes us hopeful, the supply and price situation for many raw materials and products is currently worsening dramatically. At the same time, demand from customers has risen sharply within a short period of time. The increase affects almost all of our products and comes from a large number of our customers.
Despite extensive warehousing, long-term material planning and the great commitment of our purchasing team, we will no longer be able to catch up with this development in the second half of 2021 and will only be able to purchase raw materials at increased prices. Therefore, the adjustment of our sales prices as of 1 July 2021 is inevitable.
But as always in difficult times ... please let us master the tasks ahead through joint cooperation and mutual understanding!

|Oil Separators for transcritical CO2 applications||The ESK oil separator series BOS2-CDH-… has been especially designed for transcritical applications. The oil separators are equipped with coalescence filter elements for the efficient removal of oil. The filter elements of the flanged versions can be exchanged. Instead of an internal float valve the separators are equipped with a connection for an oil level sensor. The standard versions have a 1/2”NPTF connection. Alternatively oil separators can also be ordered with a connection for the ESK oil level control type OSC. ||more ... |
|ESK High and Low Level control ENC2||The sensor is designed to recognize oils and refrigerants in oil reservoirs and liquid receivers. The electronic module can be used as minimum or maximum level control.
The information about the level situation into a vessel is signaled over a relay. The optoelectronic sensor sends infrared light by a LED, in case of no available liquid the light is reflected by the prism to the light receiver. The removable connection between prism and electronic module allows the change of electronic without opening refrigeration cycle. ESK components can be equipped with a direct sensor connection on request.The electronic components of the module are selected according industrial standard.Therefore ENC2 is applicable for the described temperature range.||more ... |
|New components for transcritical CO2 application||One of the characteristics of the transcritical CO2 process is the fact that during the compression process the critical point is exceeded. As a result pressures of up the 130 bar are reached. Oil separation is also difficult so due to the fact, that CO2 has a much higher gas density than other refrigerants. Based on a long experience with subcritical CO2 systems ESK has been offering since 2007 oil management components for transcritical applications. In the system diagram below is shown how an oil management system for the transcritical process can be build. For the oil separation special designed oil separators type BOS…CDH (Pos. 2) with a maximum working pressure of 130 bar are used. Due to the high pressure oil separators are equipped with a connection for an oil level sensor (3) instead of an internal float valve.The sensor controls the oil return via an external valve (4), which has to be installed inside the
oil return line between oil separator and oil reservoir.The oil reservoir and the following components have a maximum working pressure of 40 bar. ||more ... |
|New components: High performance oil separators BOS||The following illustration shows that the portion of oil particles at < 1 μm
in discharge gas flow rises with increasing discharge gas temperature.
These aerosol particles collide less with the 3-layered stainless steel strainer
elements of standard oil separators, leading to a reduction in separation
For decades, separators have therefore been equipped with coalescence
elements in plants of the petrochemical as well as the compressed air
industry. ESK has gained positive experiences with them in projects using
transcritical CO2 applications and environmental test chambers (extreme
conditions). This led to the development of a supplementary product line
of oil separators.||more ... |
|Transcritical CO2 application||Until now, ESK has produced hermetic oil separators with a coalescent element
until PS= 130 bar max. operating pressure, oil reservoirs, suction line
accumulators and special vessels up to PS= 70 bar.To exchange coalescent
elements in future, a flanged oil separator is introduced during the Chillventa
The components for transcritical operation are cost and time intensive
individual items regarding the design, material purchase and production.
For the installation of components in the plant, NPT connectors, Swagelok
adapters and welding connectors are available.
While all components listed in ESK catalog are available ex-warehouse,
respective delivery times must be considered with transcritical ones, also
All vessels for transcritical application are calculated,designed and approved
according to German AD-rules. The vessel welding seams have to pass a
100 per cent x-ray test.||more ... |

will be slightly changed.
The new versions have an additional
marking on the packaging.||more ... |
