Emerson Climate Technologies Launches Award-Winning Copeland Discus Digital™ Compressor in Four and Six Cylinder Capacity

Precise Temperature Control, Reduced Energy Costs, Improved Reliability Benefit Supermarkets

ST. LOUIS, March 10, 2011 – Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced its award-winning Copeland Discus Digital™ compressor is available in four and six cylinder capacities. Winner of the 2011 AHR Innovation Award in the refrigeration category, Copeland Discus Digital compressors have a proven track record of helping supermarkets maintain perishable products, improve system reliability and minimize energy costs.

These compressors complete the lineup of Discus Digital compressors which are now available in 3D, 4D and 6D capacities. 

“Emerson launched the Copeland Discus Digital compressor in 2009. Since that time, a number of supermarkets have seen great results from this advanced capacity modulation technology,” said Jason Prenger, marketing manager, food retail and industrial refrigeration Emerson Climate Technologies, Refrigeration Division. “Based on that success, we were pleased to win the refrigeration category in the AHR Innovation Awards.”

With continuous digital modulation capability from 10 to 100 percent, the Copeland Discus Digital compressor, now enhanced with CoreSense™ Technology, 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 system suction pressure variation, enabling setpoints to be raised resulting in reduce energy consumption.  Dramatic decreases in the compressor cycling rates are achieved, therefore improving compressor reliability.
