Emerson Climate Technologies Launches New Condensing Unit Rated For Multiple Refrigerants

FFAS unit features high-efficiency Copeland® Scroll compressor and Copeland PerformanceAlert™ diagnostic electronics

ST. LOUIS, September 21, 2010 – Emerson Climate Technologies Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced the launch of the new FFAS Condensing Unit for commercial refrigeration walk-in coolers. Designed to work with multiple refrigerants, the FFAS unit accommodates R-22, R-404A, R-507, R-134a and R-407C. The unit also features a high-efficiency Copeland Scroll® compressor and Copeland PerformanceAlert™ diagnostic electronics.

“With the phase-out of HCFCs and the shift to HFC refrigerants that began in 2010, wholesalers, contractors and end-users alike are facing new challenges,” said Bob Labbett, vice president of marketing, Distribution Services Division for Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc. “Flexibility is a key driver here, so we’ve been focusing on developing products rated for multiple refrigerants for the past two years.”

“The multi refrigerant approvals for the FFAS gives contractors flexibility to select the right refrigerant for the application,” he added, “It also reduces the number of SKUs that wholesalers need to carry in their branches.”

The FFAS is a part of Emerson’s F-line offering, the industry’s broadest line of integral horsepower condensing units for refrigeration applications. Contractors can not only give their customers the highest efficiency Copeland Scroll compressor, but the added benefits of integrated electronics for enhanced system reliability and service savings over the life of the product. Copeland PerformanceAlert uses the compressor as a sensor to monitor compressor operating conditions, providing advanced system protection and diagnostics to  make it easier for contractors to diagnose and prevent refrigeration system failures. 

The FFAS is available now through Emerson Authorized Full Line and Authorized Copeland wholesalers.
