Reliability has been always a major concern in the market. The Copeland Scroll™ compressor is your most reliable compressor solution. With millions of scrolls installed Copeland understands your need for reliability. Let us tell you why Copeland Scroll compressors are the most reliable solution for your system:

  • 70% fewer moving parts: eliminate many failure modes. Fewer moving parts, less rotating mass and less internal friction means also greater efficiency that reciprocating compressors.
  • Ability to start under any system load, without start component
  • Easy to service and maintain due to their compact size and lightweight, simple design.
  • Copeland scroll compressors are supplied with thermal protectors that prevent motor overheating, loss of phase and low refrigerant or oil charge.
  • No complex internal suction and discharge valves results in a smooth operation with less vibrations but also quieter.
  • Low Torque Variation: Copeland Scroll compressors have a very smooth compression cycle with torque variations that are only 30 percent of that produced by a reciprocating compressor. Scroll compressor imposes very little stress on the motor for greater reliability, low torque variation means reduced noise and vibration.
  • Suction Gas Cooled Motor: Compressor motor efficiency and reliability is further optimized with this design. Cool suction gas keeps the motor cooler for longer life and better efficiency.
  • Copeland Scroll compliance to increase compressor life

    - Axial compliance allows the scroll to remain in continuous contact in all normal operating conditions, ensuring minimal leakage without the use of tip seals.

    - Radial compliance feature of the Copeland Scroll provides superior liquid handling capability. During abnormal operations, when a slug of liquid refrigerant or debris enters the scroll compressor, the orbiting scroll separates in the radial direction and allows the liquid / debris to move out of the compressor without damaging internal components.
