Tecumseh Launches Masterflux Mini and Micro Rotary Compressors
By combining advanced motor technology with high efficiency compression technology, Tecumseh delivers mini and micro rotary compressors with an efficiency up to 9.7 EER (2.85 COP). ATLAS mini-rotary and MESA micro-rotary compressors are optimized for use with refrigerant R134a and handles capacities from 1,800 – 6,000 Btu/h (527 – 1,756 W) and 220 – 1,900 Btu/h (64-556 W) respectively. ATLAS compressor models are designed to run on a 24 VDC power supply and MESA compressor models are available for 24 VDC, 48 VDC and 220 VAC power supplies. Tecumseh’s new line of mini and micro rotary compressors are the perfect choice for small DC-powered refrigerators used on Recreational Vehicles, Buses, Trains, Trucks and Boats, as well as medical and telecommunications cooling applications. Atlas models can also be applied to home use applications such as water coolers, wine coolers and wine dispensers where AC power is required.
Tecumseh Launches IntelliCOOL Technology Platform
Innovative features such as electronic protection, on-board diagnostics, and remote communications provide technicians with the information needed to ensure refrigerated case(s) are operating at peak performance and with the highest level of reliability. In line with Tecumseh’s refrigerant position, IntelliCOOL supports hydrocarbon and A2L refrigerants, delivering systems that are Eco-friendly, safe, and meet current and future energy requirements. The four main benefits of IntelliCOOL are in the areas of Energy Savings, System Performance, Connectivity and Serviceability, and Reliability. Energy Savings is accomplished primarily by using technologies such as Dynamic Variable Capacity Cooling, ECO Mode, Adaptive Defrost, Smart Lighting Control and Continuous Learning. System Performance is enhanced via Precision Temperature Control, Power Conditioning, Rapid Temperature Pull-Down and Variable Speed Compressor and Fan Motor Controls. Connectivity and Serviceability is made possible using On-Board Communications, Local Diagnostics and Alarming and, Remote Diagnostics and Alarming. Lastly, System and Component Reliability is improved by employing Electronic Protection, Motor Soft-Start, Lubrication Management and, Self-Maintenance technologies. During 2018, Tecumseh will begin applying various elements of the IntelliCOOL technology platform to its line of commercial refrigeration compressors, condensing units and value-added systems.
Tecumseh Launches RK2 and RN2 Series Rotary Compressors
The innovative design delivers high efficiency performance with an evaporating range of -10°F to 55°F (-23.3°C to 12.8°C).
RK2 and RN2 models are available for use with refrigerant R410A, R134a and R22 and encompassing capacities from 8,000 – 65,000 Btu/h (2,345 – 19,153 W). They are designed to operate in extreme conditions and are suitable for Super Tropical (T3) ambient temperature (+129°F /+54°C). Typical applications include ductless mini-split, packaged rooftop and packaged terminal air conditioners and heat pumps. RK2 and RN2 series rotary compressors can also be used in ice machines and other commercial refrigeration applications.
Voltage options include 115 VAC, 208-230 VAC and 265 VAC in 60Hz, Single Phase, as well as 230 VAC in 60Hz, 3-Phase. Models are also available in 220-240 VAC, 50Hz, Single Phase. All 60Hz models are UL Recognized and approved for use in the United States and Canada.
RK2 and RN2 series compressors are equipped with over-sized accumulators to accommodate a large refrigerant charge, allowing for use in longer line runs.
