Brent Schroeder, group president, heating and air conditioning, Emerson’s Commercial and Residential Solutions platform, numerous other Emerson leaders, and a handful of local and state dignitaries were on hand to turn the first shovels of dirt for an expansion project on a site that currently employs approximately 1,700 people.
The Ice Cub is a compact, home-optimized HVAC system comprised of an ultra-high-efficiency compressor and ice tank with heat exchanger. The compressor operates in multiple modes. It can cool the home like a conventional a/c unit or, store energy in the form of cooling by freezing water in the ice tank.
Bitzer has announced it has modified all models of its two-stage reciprocating compressors to enable them to run with R-448A and R-449A refrigerant. The refrigerants have global warming potentials (GWPs) of 1,386 and 1,397 respectively.
A series of geothermal heat pumps from Enertech Global swept the HVAC Light Commercial Equipment category of the 2015 Dealer Design Awards, starting with the gold award winner, the TVS/TVT TETCO Commercial Series Geothermal Heat Pump.
The Danfoss Turbocor VTT series of compressors takes the benefits of magnetic bearing technology up into larger capacity ranges where the current Turbocor TT series leaves off. VTT compressors introduce IntraFlow™ technology that enables chiller systems up to 1,000 tons or more to provide improved reliability and increased efficiency.
