ST. LOUIS, January 13, 2014 – Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), is launching new R-410A Copeland Scroll™ compressor tandem combinations for commercial air conditioning applications. With the addition of these new tandem combinations, the total number of models has reached over 100.  This includes 51 uneven and 69 even tandem compressor combinations, the most complete line-up of scroll tandem compressors in the industry.

Tandems offer stepped capacity modulation for precision load matching that improve part-load efficiency while maximizing full-load efficiency, including integrated part load value (IPLV) and integrated energy efficiency ratio (IEER).   In addition, voluntary industry standards ASHRAE 189.1, Energy Star and CEE standards specify improved part-load efficiency.

With the expansion of Emerson Climate Technologies R-410A air conditioning tandem combinations, OEMs have a broader and more complete product offering to choose from. The fixed capacity even and uneven tandem configurations range from 3 to 80 Hp. The digital tandem offering ranges from 3 to 30 HP.
