MILAN (ITALY), March 15, 2016 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), will present at Mostra Convegno its new and expanded range of propane compressors for air conditioning and heat pumps.
Propane (R290) is a flammable natural refrigerant with zero ozone depletion potential, a global warming potential (GWP) of three and excellent thermodynamic properties. R290 systems result in a significantly reduced refrigerant charge compared to systems using hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs). These features make R290 an attractive candidate in light of the F-gas regulation.
Emerson is expanding its line-up of R290 Copeland Scroll™ fixed speed compressors and is launching a line-up of R290 Copeland Scroll variable speed compressors with inverter drives designed for chillers and heat pump applications.
Seven fixed speed models of Copeland Scroll compressors are available with cooling and heating capacities ranging from 4 to 16 kW and up to 32 kW for tandem applications. Because of the refrigerant’s excellent thermodynamic properties and its very low compressor discharge temperature, ZH*KCU models offer a high level of performances, efficiency and a wide operating envelope compared to R407C and R410A.
The two newly launched variable speed models offer a capacity range from 1 to 10 kW and coupled with Emerson qualified inverter drives allow for a modulation range with speed variation from 15 to 120 Hz. Dedicated Emerson R290 controls complete Emerson’s offerings to an efficient R290 solution supporting customers to be not only F-Gas Regulation but Ecodesign Directive compliant. Further customer benefits of this qualified and integrated solution are a decrease of system development time and investment costs while increasing the “go-to-market” speed.
The production launch of the variable speed compressors is announced for June 2016 while field testing samples are already available. The range of fixed and variable speed scroll compressors will be further extended by additional displacements in 2017.
