New products, new support tools, and an anniversary celebration were featured in Tecumseh booth No. 2425 during the recent 2014 CMPX Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto.

“The CMPX Expo is a great kick-off to our 2014 busy season as Tecumseh prepares to roll-out more new products, promotions, and support tools,” said Keith Gifford, Tecumseh director of global marketing. “This is our largest HVACR show in Canada and we’re excited to be able to share our 80th anniversary milestone with customers and friends from across the country.”

Four Product Introductions

New products to the Canadian market include an expansion of the AE2 line of high-efficiency reciprocating compressors, two additions to the Masterflux® product portfolio, and the introduction of universal replacement scroll compressors for air conditioning and heat pump applications.

The new AE2 high-efficiency compressor model AEX413Y-DS1B comes equipped with a high start torque motor and is designed for low-to-medium back pressure (L/MBP) applications operating in the evaporator temperature range from -30° to 23°F. This first model is optimized for refrigerant R-134a, allowing beverage cooler and vending machine equipment manufacturers to achieve the highest Energy Star® ratings.

Tecumseh continues its advancements with the new Masterflux® Eclipse direct current compressor, a 48-volt variable speed model rated at 5,600 Btuh with R-134a refrigerant, and the Sierra chiller, a complete 12V direct-current unit for stationary and mobile process cooling applications rated at 5,000 Btuh with R-134a refrigerant.

Tecumseh has also expanded its scroll compressor lineup to include 2½- through 5-ton universal replacement air conditioning and heat pump models designed for use with refrigerants R-22 and R-410A. The expanded line of air conditioning scrolls will be available through Tecumseh’s network of North America-based Authorized Distributors beginning this spring.

Expanded Support Tools

Tecumseh introduced two mobile apps that are now available for iPhone® and Android® smartphone users. The mobile apps include a digital and searchable version of Tecumseh’s Electrical Service Parts book and a comprehensive compressor and condensing unit cross reference.

Tecumseh is Turning 80

Tecumseh kicked off a year-long celebration of its 80th anniversary at the 2014 AHR Expo in New York City and continued at CMPX in Toronto, with the introduction of a special anniversary icon, new corporate video, and an invitation-only customer event. Additional activities are planned throughout the year.
