AACHEN, GERMANY, November 11, 2015 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announces the launch of 11 new scroll compressors with immediate effect. This launch covers new standard and digital scroll models for medium and low temperature applications including the new “Summit” series K5E.
The release includes the following new products:
For Medium Temperature Applications
  • Standard models: 4 new models of next generation “Summit” series replacing the existing range and 3 new models with compact size in the 4 to 7.5 hp range
  • Digital models: 2 new models with compact size in the 4 to 7.5 hp range
For Low Temperature Applications
  • Digital models: 2 new models in the 4 to 7.5 hp range extending the existing range
Copeland Scroll compressors are widely recognized to be an excellent fit for applications such as distributed and remote refrigeration packs operating in supermarkets, refrigeration equipment used in various food service applications such as condensing units for walk-ins or commercial kitchen equipment, as well as cooling systems for the light industrial sector.
“Two major trends in commercial refrigeration drove this major product development program at Emerson Climate Technologies. First, the space dedicated to the refrigeration equipment is decreasing year by year so our efforts were focused on extending as much as possible the cooling capacities of our scroll platforms as to allow the design of more compact and lighter equipment. Second, the need of efficient capacity modulation is higher than ever in order to keep operating cost to a minimum. With this release, we are extending the existing range of our digital scroll compressors for both low and medium temperature applications and the range will expand even more with new models of higher cooling capacities soon next year” said Sylvain Lamy, Director Refrigeration Marketing.
With a reduction in weight of up to 30% and in height of up to 7% for the new compact models, and an improved capacity and efficiency the newly launched scroll compressors stay abreast of these market trends in commercial refrigeration. In addition selected models feature a noise reduction up to 10dBA and the new Summit series K5E offers CoreSense™ Diagnostics as an option for advanced compressor protection. Furthermore all models are released for the new Low GWP refrigerants expanding their multi-refrigerant capability.Next Generation of Copeland Scroll™ models
