New Scroll Compressor for CO2
New Scroll Compressor for CO2

AACHEN, GERMANY, May 26, 2011— As of today a new Copeland Scroll™ compressor for the refrigerant CO2 (R744) is available. Emerson Climate Technologies has enlarged its unique product range. Results of field tests show the efficiency of the refrigerant.

Copeland Scroll™ ZO compressors are specially designed for the high pressure and severe lubrication requirements encountered in subcritical CO2 applications. This range, which includes a Digital Scroll compressor, has proven to be an excellent alternative to standard reciprocating semi-hermetic technology.

The new ZO88KCE model complements the existing line of Copeland Scroll™ compressors covering refrigeration capacities from 7 to 23 kW nominal cascade system rating conditions (LT EN12900: -35°C/-5°C 10KSH). Just like the other models of the range, ZO88KCE is manufactured in Emerson’s manufacturing plant in Cookstown, Northern Ireland to supply the European market directly.
