ST. LOUIS, January 22, 2008 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced today that their R-410A Copeland Scroll Digital™ is now available in a compete line of 3 to 12 horsepower models for commercial air conditioning applications. Offering the ability to modulate compressor capacity from 10 to 100 percent, Copeland Scroll Digital is an important part of Emerson Climate Technologies’ continuing commitment to providing contractors a broad line of advanced R-410A compressors.
Copeland Scroll Digital technology provides infinitely variable capacity modulation and is ideally suited for commercial applications with widely varying loads or a need to maintain precise temperature and humidity control. It offers an innovative way to modulate the capacity of the compressor from 10 to 100 percent so that the output precisely matches the changing cooling requirements of the space, and it does this without changing the speed of the motor. This approach to capacity modulation is as much as 30% more efficient than traditional hot-gas bypass and is capable of precisely holding temperatures to within half a degree Fahrenheit. The innovative compressor design allows for more efficient and highly controllable system performance which is valuable for both contractors and end-users.
“We are proud to lead the way with the world’s broadest R-410A scroll compressor product line and with the addition of the Copeland Scroll Digital through 12 HP we now provide commercial contractors with both single speed and modulated options. This complete R-410A scroll compressor product line enables customers to get ready for the 2010 phase-out of R-22,” said Scott Barbour, president Emerson Climate Technologies, Air Conditioning division.
Copeland Scroll Digital was honored in January 2007 as the AHR Expo Product of the Year award.
