Embraco’s EMC Compressor is a highly innovative compressor that uses natural refrigerant R-290. It is one of the world’s most efficient single-speed compressors, consuming up to 30% less energy than traditional compressors currently sold in the U.S.
Next step is to move the technology out of the lab and into the hands of development partners

Bitzer’s Schaufler Academy has received the Deutscher TGA-Award 2016 in the New Building category for its energy efficient and eco-friendly design. The international training center of the compressor manufacturer is located in Rottenburg-Ergenzingen, Germany.
The company subjected the refrigerants to intensive testing

Compressor manufacturer Bitzer has approved the hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerants R-1234yf and R-1234ze(E) for its CSH and CSW screw compressors. The two alternatives to R-134a have a global warming potential (GWP) of less than 10.
Ninety percent of compressor failures can be attributed to problems found elsewhere in the system. And, serious consequences can result if technicians don’t determine the true source of the compressor failure.
A common complaint throughout the HVACR industry is that when new technicians enter the industry, they don’t have the skills and knowledge that employers expect. One area where this is evident is in the field of compressor service.
