New Copeland Scroll™ Summit Series For Low Temperature Applications
New Copeland Scroll™ Summit Series For Low Temperature Applications

Aachen, Germany, March 18, 2014 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), is introducing the Summit compressor series for low temperature applications. The series features new scroll compressors that are efficient, compact, and quiet.

In the commercial refrigeration sector, scroll technology has caught up with reciprocating technology in many applications and in many respects – in fact scroll technology offers winning advantages, broadly recognized by the market. As a manufacturer of both technologies, Emerson Climate Technologies offers the full range of products from which the optimum solution can be chosen. The innovation cycles for all product families follow the changing market requirements in order to continuously improve the efficiency levels of refrigeration equipment. The launch of the new Summit scroll series for low temperature took this into consideration for frozen food applications.

Emerson Climate Technologies is presenting the new Summit Series for low temperature applications using R407A, R407F and R404A as a refrigerant at the Mostra Convegno trade fair in Milan. The ZF25K5E, ZF34K5E, ZF41K5E and ZF49K5E models cover an expanded cooling capacity range from 5 kW to 10 kW with liquid injection and 8 kW to 14 kW with vapor injection. Resulting from an entire redesign, the Summit compressors offer a level of efficiency 10% higher than the previous range. The Summit series is also compatible with Enhanced Vapor Injection – a technology developed by Emerson Climate Technologies - which allows system efficiency and cooling capacity to be increased by 25% and 40% respectively.

The sound level of Summit was also significantly reduced in comparison with previous models. For sound critical applications, Summit compressors can be fitted with an additional sound shell that will attenuate sound by a further 10 dBA. This option enables particularly quiet operation when installed in noise sensitive environments. Compared to its predecessor, the Summit series is considerably more compact in terms of dimensions and weight. This represents another practical benefit in terms of ease of manufacturing and installation.
