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.”
