This work is devoted to the description of a new design solution for the gas distribution mechanism of a reciprocating compressor. The study of the factors that have a significant effect on the vibration and noise performance of hermetic refrigerant compressors allows the authors to conclude that the world leaders in the cost and sales of compressors are manufacturers whose products have a sound power level in the range of 32-36 dBA. The authors propose a new design solution for a unified valve plate for use in a parametric range of hermetic piston refrigerant compressors of the SKO series. The proposed valve train contains a 1.015 mm thick composite valve plate containing five 0.203-mm Sandvik 20-C valve steel plates that are bonded with anaerobic adhesives. Laboratory studies revealed the advantages of S-KO compressors in terms of the average sound power level at 4.8-5.54 dBA; supply coefficient (refrigeration coefficient) decreased by 27.4 ÷ 14.4%. Such results were achieved due to the use of anaerobic adhesives, which made it possible, instead of a machined valve plate, to use a composite 1.015 mm thick and provide a stronger contact between the surfaces of the plates.
