Large Line-Up of R410A Scroll Compressors for Comfort Applications

MILAN, ITALY, March 27, 2012 – Buildings need space cooling, heating and sanitary hot water production. New European Commission regulations will drive the use of primary energy in a more efficient way. Further labeling schemes will be introduced to certify system efficiency. Thus system manufacturers are challenged to fulfill these targets by selecting more efficient compressors to design chillers, HVAC-systems and heat pumps. The ZH range of Copeland Scroll™ compressors are the market reference technology for dedicated heating and reversible systems. Now, Emerson Climate Technologies has further developed this existing residential line-up for R410A and expanded it into commercial sizes. System manufacturers can benefit from it by designing more compact, cost-effective and efficient systems.

The ZHI*P heating dedicated scrolls are designed for improved heating seasonal performance (SCOP): their overall energy consumption is reduced. This is achieved through high pressure ratio optimization as well as vapor and wet injection. They feature the widest operating envelope available on the market, which allows for sanitary water production down to -22°C ambient temperature. The ZH*P comfort scroll range on the other hand is optimized for reversible systems and features increased seasonal efficiency both for heating and cooling applications. Its envelope has been extended so as to cover heating applications in warmer and average climates. Copeland® certified tandem assemblies, covering capacities from 4kW to 91kW per circuit, are also available for the whole range.
