Sidney, Ohio, United States: In a press communiqué, Emerson has informed the launch of its latest generation of Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor at the 2017 AHR Expo, which was held from January 30 to February 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The new compressor, the communiqué said, will include an expansion in the capacity range up to 10 HP, and will offer comfort and efficiency at an affordable price. The compressor, it added, has been redesigned for improved performance and reliability in residential and commercial air conditioning systems, with an offering to support 1.5 to 10 tonne systems.
The company said that it has designed the latest generation to operate at approximately 65% capacity, delivering efficiency gains in full-load of up to five per cent and up to five per cent more efficiency in part-load. These improvements, the company explained, are enabling affordable solutions for OEMs in 15/16 SEER applications, allowing OEMs to more easily meet CEE tiers, while also providing additional comfort benefits, such as better humidity and temperature control.
“The Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor provides contractors with an ideal way to help homeowners get the comfort and efficiency they want at an accessible price,” said Joe Linsenmeyer, Director Marketing (Residential Air Conditioning) for Emerson’s Commercial and Residential Solutions platform. “And in commercial applications, this compressor will help facility managers meet the 2018 rooftop efficiency regulations at an affordable cost.”
