Cumming, Georgia, USA, 7 January 2019: Torad Engineering will be revealing two new spool compressors designed for Honeywell’s ultra-low GWP refrigerant, Solstice ze (R-1234 ze), at the AHR Expo, to be held from January 14 to 16, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, the company said in a Press communiqué.

Greg Kemp, CEO, Torad Engineering, said: “Global warming is a growing threat and planet Earth does not negotiate. To combat this threat, the HVAC industry should accelerate the adoption of ultra-low GWP refrigerants. Torad’s spool compressor utilising Honeywell’s Solstice ze provides an excellent path to making ultra-low global warming air conditioning an affordable reality.”

First-generation, low global warming refrigerants have GWP ratings in the 500-700 range, still contributing significantly to the global warming threat, the communiqué said. Solstice ze has a near zero global warming potential and a very high cycle efficiency, making it an ideal candidate to be the long-term refrigerant standard for many air-conditioning applications, the communiqué further said. Torad’s spool compressor has performance, size and cost advantages, compared to legacy scroll and screw compressors, when utilising Solstice ze, the communiqué added.

According to Torad, it will be exhibiting its spool compressor technology, designed for use with Solstice ze, at Booth B2809, at the AHR Expo.
