"The NT compressor family is very much at the forefront of compressor technology for commercial refrigeration," said Dave Sylves, OEM sales manager for Embraco North America. The NT compressors are rated from 1/3 to 1 hp today and will be extended to 1-1/2 hp later in the year.
"This new family of compressors boasts an improved efficiency of 15 percent over the T-Series it replaces while reducing sound levels by 5 dB," said Sylves. "This makes the NT Series ideal for ice maker and food service applications, where high efficiency and low sound are specified by the end user."
"Embraco has manufactured condensing units for years, but this new deck is another in a new line of complete sealed systems offered by the company," he said. "We are working closely with key end users like Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Unilever, and NestlÃ©, as these companies are demanding an HFC-free solution for their future refrigeration needs."
He noted that Embraco encourages its customers to develop environmentally friendly refrigeration systems. The Embraco Ecology Award forms part of an educational program for schools and universities that promote environmental awareness and protection.
The manufacturer's largest plant and headquarters are in Brazil. The other plants are located in China, Italy, and Slovakia. Embraco North America is located in the metropolitan Atlanta area.
