Second International Conference was Held June 29–30 in Bangkok, Thailand
SIDNEY, OHIO, July 16, 2013 — Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced Rajan Rajendran, Ph.D., vice president, engineering services and sustainability, spoke at the Advancing Ozone and Climate Protection Technologies — Next Steps Second International Conference, held June 29–30 in Bangkok.
Dr. Rajendran presented “Promising Low-GWP Options in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Applications” on June 29. Attendees learned about recent advances in the research for new refrigerants and the role Life Cycle Climate Performance plays for both air conditioning and refrigeration systems. His presentation can be viewed at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) site.
Emerson showcased a variety of solutions that utilize low GWP refrigerants for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. A range of Copeland Scroll™ compressors for air conditioning systems operating with R32 refrigerant was exhibited along with expansion valves and system protection components. These compressors can be used with either liquid or vapor injection to provide system design flexibility and optimization of system performance and cost.
For the refrigeration market, the Copeland™ Stream compressor for R744 refrigerant was displayed. This 4-cylinder compressor for CO2 transcritical applications is designed for medium temperature cascade and booster systems. It features CoreSense™ diagnostics, allowing for compressor protection, predictive diagnostics, communication with Emerson’s supervisory controls, and stepless capacity modulation by variable frequency drive from 25 to 75 Hz. In addition, Emerson displayed a hermetic reciprocating compressor lineup for R290. The range is optimized for maximum performance and is certified with IEC System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (CB), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) approvals.
Dr. Rajendran is responsible for the technical support to original equipment manufacturers and end users for Emerson’s refrigeration business. He is extremely knowledgeable about alternate refrigerants as they pertain to air conditioning, heat pump and refrigeration systems in the United States, Europe and Asia. Rajendran also serves on the Low GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program Task Force of the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute and on the Working Groups for A2L Refrigerants at Underwriters Laboratories.
