Emerson has launched a new line of Copeland fixed speed scroll compressors for commercial applications designed for lower GWP refrigerants and with a flexible product platform to reduce customer applied costs and complexity. The new commercial compressor line will help Emerson customers meet Department of Energy (DOE) 2023 regulations as well as California Air Resources Board (CARB) refrigerant regulations.

Copeland’s next-generation fixed speed scroll compressors will initially launch with 12-15 ton models in February with the full lineup of 6-40 tons incrementally releasing over the next two years. These compressors are regulation-ready and optimized for the following refrigerants: R410A (ZPKZ models), R32 (YPK1/KA models), and R454B (YAK1 models).

“Meeting upcoming regulations, including higher efficiency levels and lower GWP refrigerant capability in products, presents a challenge for our customers,” said Mark Bills, vice president and general manager for Commercial Air Conditioning, Emerson. “This innovative compressor lineup 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 rooftops, splits, chillers and reversible systems.”

Emerson’s Next-Generation Fixed-Speed Scroll Compressors offer the following New Features:

  • New scroll design, replacing a 20-year-old scroll platform
  • New hermetic motor redesigned to maximize efficiency
  • Unique scroll discharging valve to reduce over-compression at light loads, optimizing performance over a range of applications
  • Oil-injection (certain models) to mitigate heat in the scrolls thereby increasing the operating envelope
  • Plug-n-play electronics to prevent customers from redesigning their system controllers
  • Harmonized external features to reduce the footprint and simplify tandem designs
  • Tandems and multiples (limited models) will be available shortly following the February launch
  • Manufactured on a new, state-of-the-art, automated assembly line in Lebanon, MO
Copeland fixed speed scroll compressors for commercial applications achieve as much as 8% higher system-level IEER and IPLV efficiencies than legacy models, without compromising ease of system installation and servicing.
