The company has added a 13-ton model to its line of Performer® scroll compressors. Designed for use in commercial air conditioning applications, the SM 161 can be paralleled with any of 10 other scrolls ranging in capacity from 7 to 15 tons, to make tandems, trios, and quadros in a variety of capacities, the company says. The unit includes an internal line-break motor protector. The compressor features a higher efficiency, lower noise, and lower profile than its predecessor, the company says. The unit is available with brazed or rotolock fittings, and is UL recognized and CE certified.
