LAS VEGAS, NV — On Sunday night, Emerson hosted its annual pre-AHR Expo party at Brooklyn Bowl, which claims to provide a “vortex of alluring beats, eclectic eats, and bang-up bowling.” The crowd here definitely seemed to be enjoying all these offerings, while celebrating — or lamenting — the outcome of the afternoon football games.

Brent Schroeder, group president of HVACR technologies at Emerson, raised a toast to the 100th anniversary of the Copeland brand. He noted that the brand was at the forefront of many innovations over the years, including the latest range of solutions for the refrigeration market, which are optimized around next-generation refrigerants like CO2 and R-290.

Schroeder noted that several new products will be featured at the Expo, including the Copeland oil-free centrifugal compressor featuring Aero-lift™ bearing technology, which was an AHR Expo Innovation Award finalist. Two other Innovation Award finalists will also be on display at the booth: the Copeland horizontal, variable-speed, scroll compressor for commercial refrigeration and the RIDGID® pipe saw.

The Copeland™ oil-free centrifugal compressor enables oil-free solutions in chiller applications through a step-function reduction in the complexity required to operate oil-free centrifugal compressors. It also offers increased efficiencies in chillers, designs optimized for lower-GWP refrigerants, and a scalable product platform to address upcoming regulations, with a broader-range envelope while increasing turndown.

The Copeland horizontal, variable-speed, scroll compressor offers a solution for more sustainable compression technology within the commercial refrigeration sector. For manufacturers of self-contained, reach-in coolers and freezers, display cases and walk-in coolers, Emerson notes that this low-profile, variable-speed solution delivers an ideal combination of energy efficiency, low-GWP refrigerant options, reliability, and design flexibility.

The RIDGID pipe saw enables contractors to cut pipe quickly and efficiently, as a unique clamping design secures the tool to pipe up to 12 inches in diameter, resulting in a quality cut in minutes.

At booth #C3106, Emerson will also be exhibiting the latest innovations from its leading brands, including ASCO™, Cooper-Atkins™, Copeland™, Dixell™, Greenlee®, Klauke®, ProAct™, RIDGID®, Sensi™, Therm-O-Disc™, and White-Rodgers™.
