Emerson Climate Technologies Announces New Copeland Discus Digital™ Compressor

Proven Digital Modulation Technology Now for Copeland Discus® Compressors <

ST. LOUIS, November 9, 2009 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced the launch of the Copeland Discus Digital™ compressor. As the newest addition to the Copeland Discus® compressor family, this product line offers unique capacity modulation and is available for the three cylinder Discus® compressors.

Copeland Discus semi-hermetic compressors have long set the standard as the industry’s most trusted name for refrigeration, due to their reliability and efficient use of energy. The new Copeland Discus Digital compressor builds on the success of these features while also offering additional benefits.

With continuous digital modulation from 10 to 100 percent, the Copeland Discus Digital compressor provides the most precise method of capacity control, making it ideal for temperature sensitive applications. Introducing Copeland Discus Digital compressors into a refrigeration system allows the system to specifically match the capacity being generated to the required load, providing the opportunity for the system to operate more efficiently, resulting in optimum system performance and control. The capacity modulation found in this compressor also reduces the suction pressure and temperature variation of the refrigerated space and provides a dramatic decrease in compressor cycling rates, therefore improving compressor reliability.

“The Copeland Discus Digital compressor delivers a new and unique ability to precisely control temperatures while also minimizing energy consumption,” said Kurt Knapke, manager - supermarket & electronic programs, Emerson Climate Technologies, Refrigeration Division. “With this product, end-users will experience enhanced compressor reliability and efficiency, longer food shelf life and less food shrink in their stores, resulting in a significant cost savings.”
