When Emerson used the scroll technology in compressors for the first time, it was a game changer to the industry. Since then, Copeland Scroll technology is a market leader for HVACR applications, impressing contractors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with its higher efficiency, demonstrated reliability and easy installation.
Scroll compressors are very efficient. About 35% of the electrical energy used annually in this country is used by HVACR systems. Compressors make up a huge majority of the energy used in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. With that being said, compressor selection is crucial to strengthening the overall efficiency of HVACR systems. The integral design of Copeland Scroll compressors makes them a favorite option for more energy-efficient systems. In addition, Copeland Scroll compressors play an important role in serving the industry through key transitions like the 1992 move to a 10 SEER standard and the industry’s shift in 2006 to a 13 SEER minimum. As the industry gets ready for another regulatory change (this time the phaseout of R-22 refrigerants in favor of the more environmentally friendly R-410A) it will have the advantage from the flexibility and efficiency of scroll compressor technology.
There’s also the environment to consider. As the HVACR industry changes over from R-22 refrigerants to the more environmentally friendly R-410A, an unforeseen event happened: adoption is taking place faster than expected. The market is already 50% higher in R-410A than expected. With nearly 10 million Copeland Scroll R-410A compressors installed around the world, Emerson has the industry’s largest line of environmentally friendly R-410A compressors.
Copeland Scroll compressors are known for their reliability. What makes them so reliable? Patented design features are makes them so reliable. These include:
- 70% fewer moving parts
- Ability to start under any system load, without start components
- Compact, light-weight design
- No complex internal suction and discharge valves for quieter operation and higher reliability
Emerson was able to achieve this through smart innovation. With the broadest product line on the market, Copeland Scroll compressors range from 1-60 HP and are used in more than 100 million installations worldwide. They have become the compressor of choice to lead the industry through major changes, including the 13 SEER minimum-efficiency requirement and R-22 phaseout. Copeland Scroll compressors can be used in single or tandem configurations and can also be modulated for increased efficiency and the specific needs of homeowners.
