Emerson Climate Technologies Launches New Electronic Valve Kit for Refrigeration Systems

Emerson XEV Kit includes everything required to replace existing expansion valves with an energy-efficient, full electronic solution.

St. Louis, January 17, 2014 – Emerson Climate Technologies Flow Controls, a business unit of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has launched a new valve replacement kit which will provide contractors with a quick and efficient way to upgrade refrigeration systems. The kits include everything required to replace an existing expansion device with an electronic solution.

The Emerson XEV Kit includes a combination of commonly needed components for field installation of an energy-efficient, electronic expansion valve solution, including the Emerson EX series valve, XEV controller, pressure transducer, temperature sensor, transformer, and all associated cables, all in one box. The key benefits include:

  • Applicable to multiple refrigerants, including R-404A, R-507, R-407A, R-22, R-134a, R-410A and subcritical CO2
  • Several kit offerings for a wide range of valve capacities
  • Specific kit instructions included for faster installation
  • Controller is pre-programmed for use with the included components, allowing for easy setup
  • An RS485 serial link (Modbus) allows the controller to connect to monitoring systems
  • Controller kit also available that includes all control components without the EXV solution

“The XEV Kit allows contractors to service systems easily with the tools they need in one easy-to-use package. Contractors will benefit from the convenience of this kit while providing their customers with a better performing refrigeration system and energy efficiency savings,” said Jim Hagl, manager of Distribution Sales, Emerson Climate Technologies, Flow Controls business.

Mechanical valves may not allow efficient control of the case during low load or low head pressure conditions. Emerson’s EX Series valve and XEV controller allows customers to manage refrigerant systems electronically and ensure a stable flow of refrigerant across a wide range of operating conditions. The broad operating range, excellent resolution, and superb control characteristics of the Emerson XEV Kit provides the framework for substantial energy savings and more stable environment temperatures.
