Aug. 4, 2014: New Embraco Compressor Handles Two Different Commercial Refrigeration Applications

Unit Provides Energy Efficiency Gains of Up to 9 Percent

SUWANEE, Ga. — Embraco, a leading supplier of hermetic refrigeration compressors, has announced the launch of the FFU160HAX compressor — what the company says is a two-in-one solution for light commercial refrigeration. Embraco said the FFU160HAX can be used by manufacturers of commercial refrigerators in bottle coolers (600L to 1000L), as well as for horizontal freezers (400L to 800L) with solid or glass door. The new compressor covers evaporation temperatures ranging between -35ºC and 0ºC.

According to Embraco, manufacturers can use the same model for applications with different characteristics and still get maximum performance and reliability. This versatility simplifies logistical processes, inventory management, and demand forecasting, since refrigerator manufacturers can manage demand for different types of refrigerator, such as freezers, horizontal storage units, and displays of food and beverages, using just one compressor model.

“The FFU160HAX is one of the most modern compressors for commercial refrigeration on the market, with energy efficiency gains of up to 9 percent when compared to what’s available in the same range of capacity and refrigerant. In addition, the new compressor is capable to operate under the harshest operating conditions even at unequal pressures. These features are vital solutions for the commercial refrigeration industry,” said Natanael Kaminski, corporate director of marketing.

Embraco said the FFU160HAX compressor will be made available to manufacturers and also to the aftermarket segment in the North American and Latin American regions, starting in September of this year.
