“I don’t think anybody who was on that [scroll technology
development] team 20 years ago would have forecasted that we would have nearly
60 million pieces in the field today, 10 plants around the world, and scroll
models from one to 30 horsepower... nobody would have envisioned that,” assured
Sit down with those deeply involved in the
development and ultimate production of scroll technology, and the words
“challenge” and “hurdle” are likely to surface quite a bit, as they did when The
NEWS spoke with Emerson executives of the 1970s and 1980s, who played
key roles in taking Copeland Scroll to market.
On behalf of The Air Conditioning,
Heating, and Refrigeration NEWS, please enjoy a mix of nostalgia with
the future, as you celebrate with Emerson Climate Technologies, the 20th
Anniversary of Copeland Scroll.
Everyone at Emerson Climate Technologies is
proud of how far Copeland Scroll has come in its first 20 years. But as we
reflect on scroll’s launch, its market acceptance and global expansion, we’re

the industry as a whole.
Do you want to be great at solving employee
performance problems? If you are talking with employees about the details of
their work on a regular basis, then talking about small problems should be something you do as a matter of course.
Facility managers of the future will be astonished when they
discover that building systems were not always integrated into a
single enterprise-wide information technology network.
Yes, the “old days” of operating a building will be compared to writing letters
instead of text messaging. This future scenario is a lot closer than it seems.
Some applications utilize
an input or supply voltage of 277-1-60. While some components are
available for direct application of 277-1-60 power, most manufacturers find that the use of a buck-boost transformer to
lower the voltage is more cost effective.
Bob had changed a compressor and was just
about ready to charge the system when a problem arose. He pulled a vacuum down to 500 microns but noticed a rise in the vacuum gauge to 1,000 microns. There was a leak and Btu Buddy assisted him in finding it.
