June 26, 2009

ST. LOUIS - Emerson Climate Technologies has announced its approval of R-407A and R-407C refrigerants for Copeland Discus® compressors in medium- and low-temperature refrigeration applications, per the approved operating ranges. Due to the phaseout of R-22, the supermarket refrigeration industry continues to evaluate alternative refrigerants. With this particular approval, the industry now has the option to use R-407A and R-407C refrigerants in OEM equipment.

“It is our goal at Emerson Climate Technologies to offer the industry the most up to date information on approved and suggested refrigerant options for various technologies and applications,” said Rajan Rajendran, director of applications engineering, Emerson Climate Technologies, Refrigeration Division. “R-407A and R-407C offer capacity, efficiency performance, and global warming potential comparable to R-22 and will provide a sound option for Copeland Discus compressors, complementing our existing R-404A products that are available for refrigeration applications.”
