Beijing, China, April 8, 2014 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson, has won the Innovative Product Award from China Refrigeration Expo 2014 for its Copeland Scroll™ 5HP variable speed compressor with EVI scroll heating technology.
The Award aims to recognize the most innovative new products in China’s HVACR industry to lead the trend of lower carbon emission and environment protection. A panel of judges made up of industry professionals from design institutions and universities chose the Copeland Scroll™ 5HP variable speed compressor with EVI scroll heating technology for the Refrigeration Equipment category based on innovation, application, value to the user and market impact.
The Copeland Scroll™ 5HP variable speed compressor combines several leading technologies from Emerson Climate Technologies. Comprehensive testing results demonstrate that variable capacity control, coupled with EVI scroll heating technology, can enable the unit to start quickly at ambient temperatures as low as -25°C; while the heating capacity can increase by 50% and COP by 5% at -15°C. With this improvement, the product will be able to cover the heating needs of 90% residential areas in China during winter. It solves problems that had challenged the air conditioning industry for a long time: poor heating capacity at low ambient temperatures and noise at high frequency operation.
Sherry Xie, Director of Residential Air-conditioning Marketing, Emerson Climate Technologies, Asia, said: “Copeland Scroll™ variable speed compressor with EVI scroll heating technology is an innovative product optimized both for energy efficiency standards and market needs in China. By utilizing global know-how as well as local design and manufacturing expertise, this product has attracted great attention from the industry since its release last year. Over the past 6 months, Hisense, EK and Hitachi have launched residential VRF central air-conditioners and floor heating systems with Emerson Climate Technologies’ variable speed scroll and EVI scroll heating technology, which all received positive feedback from the market. This year, the Innovative Product Award given by China Refrigeration Expo confirms its outstanding energy saving as well as low ambient heating capacities. We will continue to move forward to bring more innovative products and solutions into China’s HVACR industry.”
This product is designed for residential and light commercial HVAC applications, including VRF, floor heating and heat pump water heating systems. It has driven the residential air-conditioning market into a new era of higher energy efficiency and greater comfort to the consumers.
