Scroll compressors for low temperature applications with A2L refrigerants

30 June 2022

New standard and digital scroll compressors from Emerson are designed for low temperature refrigeration applications approved for low global warming potential (GWP) A2L refrigerants and A1 refrigerants, which currently will be available for the European market only.

Emerson invested early in the development of products and solutions optimized for A2L refrigerants to enable sustainable refrigeration. With the latest Copeland scroll compressors for low GWP A2L refrigerants, EmersonSource: EmersonSource: Emerson is supporting original equipment manufacturers with a long-term, sustainable alternative.

Copeland YF / YFI / YFJ low GWP scroll compressors are optimized for low temperatures between -40° C and 7° C and their operation is approved for a variety of A2L mid-pressure refrigerants such as R454A, R454C and R455A. The fully hermetic design of YF scroll compressors is optimized to handle those refrigerants and to operate efficiently and reliably.

The new YF range includes seven fixed speed models, two models with vapor injection (YFI) and two with digital modulation (YFJ), covering a capacity range of 0.98 kW to 5.7 kW under EN12900 LT conditions. Vapor injection boosts system cooling capacity by up to 40% and efficiency by up to 25%, making this compressor range highly efficient for low temperature applications.
