Frick Rotary Screws Escape Industrial Refrigeration
In the mid-1990’s, faced with a static business climate after more than a century in the industrial refrigeration compressor business, Frick began looking for other applications for screw compressors.
“While product cooling and ice making industries remained a key business, we found opportunity in natural gas,” said John Ferguson, director of Frick sales. Now, as a unit of Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI), a Fortune 100 company that includes York Process Systems, Frick screw compressors serve a broad range of niche markets.
“We serve many applications in refrigeration, natural gas, specialty gases, as well as custom compressors for the U.S. and other navies,” said David Seiler, Frick OEM sales manager.
