Emerson has launched a new line of Copeland scroll compressors for commercial comfort applications designed for the refrigerant R32. The new compressor range will help manufacturers meet requirements from the Ecodesign directive and the F-Gas phasedown.
“Meeting regulations, including higher efficiency levels and lower GWP refrigerant capability in products, presents a challenge for our customers” said Maurizio Boldrini, director commercial comfort marketing for Emerson. “This innovative compressor range has been carefully designed for industry-leading efficiency and reliability and is suitable for our customers and end-users to apply across a wide array of commercial applications including chillers, heat pumps, close control units and rooftops. We expect R32 to become the most used low GWP refrigerant to replace R410A in air conditioning and commercial heating in Europe, thanks to its wide availability, performances, favorable cost and low charge. The new line is manufactured in Europe for Europe, with a shortened supply chain and a centralized European distribution center strategy to better service our customers.”
