USA: Emerson is to launch the latest generation of its Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor at the AHR Expo in Las Vegas today.
The new compressor will include an expansion in the capacity range up to 10hp. It is said to have been redesigned for improved performance and reliability in residential and commercial air conditioning systems with an offering to support 1.5 to 10 ton systems.
“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.”
Emerson says it designed the latest generation of this technology to operate at ~65% capacity, and to deliver efficiency gains in full-load of up to 5% and up to 5% more efficiency in part-load. These improvements 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.
