Emerson Climate Technologies Launches C-Series Thermal Expansion Valve

ST. LOUIS, February 5, 2008 –    Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced the launch of the C-Series Thermal Expansion Valve. The C-Series TXV is designed and optimized specifically for use in R-410A systems. This difference is critically important as the industry moves closer to 2010, the deadline for eliminating production of new systems designed for R-22 and other HCFC refrigerants.

“We are committed to keeping our customers ahead of the curve in terms of technology and readiness for key regulations, like the 2010 phase-out of HCFC equipment,” said Austin Childs, vice president of product engineering, Emerson Climate Technologies Flow Controls Division. “Now our customers have an industry-best TXV option for R-410A systems with our C-Series, allowing them to put together the best possible systems featuring the newer refrigerant.”

The C-Series TXV provides the most precise superheat control in the industry, resulting in greatly enhanced compressor protection. When combined with the award-winning, contractor-preferred Copeland Scroll® compressor, the C-Series TXV becomes a critical element in the industry’s most energy efficient R-410A systems. It joins the EKZ Filter Drier in the R-410A optimized product lineup of Emerson valves, controls and system protectors.

Other key features of the C-Series TXV include:

  • Best in class reverse flow capacity
  • Balanced-port construction
  • Newly designed power element and charge
  • Hermetic leak-free construction

“We have added even greater precision to the manufacturing process, ensuring that the C-Series TXVs are built to the highest possible standards, with the lowest possible failure rates,” said Childs.
