New Copeland Scroll Digital Compressor Models For Low And Medium Temperature Applications
New Copeland Scroll Digital™ Compressor Models For Low And Medium Temperature Applications
  • New 10 and 15 hp digital scroll models for medium temperature refrigeration applications
  • New 13 hp digital scroll model for low temperature refrigeration applications
  • Perfect fit for cold room and small retail condensing units and compressor packs, as well as precision cooling systems

AACHEN (GERMANY), 8 September 2016 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has released three additional digital scroll compressors within the “Summit” K5E series, thus extending the existing digital range to 15 hp. With step-less capacity modulation from 10% to 100%, the medium temperature range now offers a cooling capacity up to 26 kW while the low temperature range with vapor injection technology offers up to 12.5 kW cooling capacity.

These compressors fit particularly well in multi-evaporator applications or any applications needing a broad range of capacity modulation such as multiple cold rooms in food service, small retail condensing units and compressor packs, as well as precision cooling or light industrial systems.

Because the need for efficient capacity modulation is higher than ever for end-users to keep operating costs to a minimum, design efforts have been made to optimize the efficiency of these new models. In addition the new “Summit” K5E digital series features low sound operation for noise critical applications and offers the capability of both liquid and vapor injection for the low temperature model ZFD41K5E.

Models are approved and qualified for standard refrigerants R404A, R407A/F and R134a as well as for low GWP alternatives such as R448A and R449A. Compressors from the ZBD and ZFD range all have the same footprint, which makes their integration into different refrigeration systems easier for equipment manufacturers when used in a rack with existing fixed speed “Summit” K5 models.

Individual model performance data for the new ZBD76K5E, ZBD114K5E and ZFD41K5E is available for all refrigerants in Emerson’s Selection Software.
