More Than 50% of Refrigerated Container Users Employ Scroll Compressors
SIDNEY, Ohio, Nov. 28, 2011 — Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc. and its affiliates, businesses of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced it has installed more than 200,000 Copeland Scroll® digital compressors used within the global refrigerated container industry. Emerson Climate Technologies shipped its first Copeland Scroll digital compressor for refrigerated seagoing containers in 2002, and now builds these compressors in Sidney, Ohio and Rayong, Thailand.
Ten years ago, less than 5% of the refrigerated container users employed scroll compressors. Today, more than 50% of users employ scroll.
“Transport refrigeration requires a high level of system performance in some of the most demanding environments imaginable,” said Jim Mozer, vice president/general manager, Refrigeration Marketing and Integrated Products. “That’s why the top names in transport refrigeration count on Copeland Scroll compressors for best-in-class corrosion protection, performance and reliability and the ability to provide low energy usage through digital modulation.”
Emerson’s Copeland Scroll digital compressor technology delivers precise temperature and humidity control to refrigerated seagoing containers, providing users the ability to maintain box temperatures to within +/- 0.5° F (+/- 0.3° C). This is particularly critical for perishable products — such as seafood, fruits and vegetables — which travel in seagoing containers on vessels that encounter harsh weather conditions and require tight climate control to protect quality.
