ST. LOUIS, February 5, 2009 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced that they have worked hand-in hand with OEM, Refrigeration Design Technologies, Inc. (RDT) to create the new RDT Eco-Cool refrigeration rack. Emerson Climate Technologies Copeland Scroll Digital™ compressor is the centerpiece of this new revolutionary concept, creating a versatile, precise, compact, energy efficient and communicative refrigeration system.
“With the introduction of the Copeland Scroll Digital compressor, Emerson Climate Technologies provided a technological advancement that is changing the way we address environmentally responsible initiatives in the food service industry,” said Brent Dyess, vice president of Refrigeration Design Technologies. “This was the missing piece that is now in place to provide the utmost in versatility and energy efficiency.”
The new Eco-Cool system was specifically designed to meet the ever-increasing demands for environmentally responsible compliance within the food service industry. With the Copeland Scroll Digital compressor, the Eco-Cool system offers precise control of individual compressors, allowing an application that would typically require eight compressors, to now utilize only two digital scroll compressors (one medium temperature and one low temperature). For the customer’s peace of mind, it also includes a back-up compressor for 100% redundancy. With fewer compressors, the Eco-Cool system has a smaller system footprint, lower refrigerant volume and reduced electrical consumption.
With the Emerson Climate Technologies Copeland Scroll Digital compressor and the E2 controller, the Eco-Cool system also addresses the increasing demand for closer temperature tolerances and the ability to monitor, control and record these vital temperatures. The E2 controller, a standard feature on the Eco-Cool system, allows for remote monitoring, alarm and control of the refrigeration rack via an internet connection. The controller can also interface with building monitoring systems (BMS), maintain a backlog record of temperature readouts and alarm end-users upon high temperature or low refrigerant.
“It has been a pleasure working with the team at Emerson Climate Technologies whose product development and follow-up support have resulted in another innovative design for RDT,” said Dyess. “We are truly excited to provide a system that will reduce costs for our customers and leave a smaller ecological footprint on our environment.”
