USA: Emerson has extended its range of Copeland Scroll K5 compressors up to 75,500Btu/hr (22kW) for low temperature applications.
The new ZF54K5 compressor includes a redesigned motor, scroll and bearing to help minimise energy consumption. The precision-machined scrolls are said to provide superior isentropic efficiency and wear-in for improved performance over time. Low ambient performance is also improved through new valving technology that adjusts the scroll compression ratio based on operating condition.
“New regulations and company standards are putting sustainability and energy efficiency at the forefront of the industry,” said Andre Patenaude, director of food retail at Emerson. “The ZF54K5 compressor can help our customers meet their efficiency goals while also potentially saving them money and improving their operational structures.”
The Copeland Scroll ZF54K5 compressor is equipped with CoreSense diagnostics, which can help prevent unnecessary service calls and extend compressor life. CoreSense Diagnostics send early warning signs of system issues, help users protect from catastrophic conditions when failures are detected and improve speed and accuracy of system troubleshooting by displaying fault codes.
