New Copeland Scroll Condensing Unit FFAP Series 15 Percent More Efficient Than Standard Reciprocating Condensing Units
ST. LOUIS — Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today introduced the new Copeland ScrollTM condensing unit – FFAP Series, which delivers an improved energy efficiency rating (EER) of up to 15 percent when compared to standard reciprocating condensing units. The FFAP Series utilizes the new Copeland ScrollTM ZSKA refrigeration compressor (1.5 to 5 hp) and is compatible with a variety of refrigerants, including R-404A, R-134a, R-407C, and R-22. It also has a wide operating range (from -30 F to 45 F evaporator temperature), which allows it to be used with applications ranging from floral shops to convenience stores to other retail establishments. With the ability to be utilized with multiple refrigerants in multiple temperature applications, the FFAP Series condensing unit enables fewer SKUs to be stocked and serviced.
The FFAP series condensing unit also features Emerson’s Electronic Unit Controller, which simplifies commercial refrigeration system operation while increasing system accuracy, protection and capabilities. The Emerson Electronic Unit Controller improves condensing unit reliability, service and diagnostics by utilizing a more advanced and precise electronic control system, instead of the traditional mechanical control.
“Within the past few years, industry standards and government regulations for higher energy efficiency have become more prevalent in the commercial refrigeration market,” said Jason Prenger, director, foodservice marketing, Emerson Climate Technologies. “The new Copeland Scroll condensing unit – FFAP Series was designed to address these energy efficiency guidelines.”
