Danfoss has launched new models for its Turbocor® TG series for low global warming potential refrigerants. The compressors enable chiller manufacturers to build climate friendly and sustainable solutions that support refrigerant regulations for reducing the direct and indirect CO2 emissions such as the European F-Gas Regulation and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s SNAP regulations.
Emerson Climate Technologies has made changes to its existing Copeland compressor and condensing unit platforms used in refrigeration systems servicing walk-in and reach-in applications in order to meet new energy standards.
WaterFurnace International has introduced the Envision® 30-ton water source heat pump, which the company says offers efficiencies that exceed ASHRAE 90.1 standards. Featuring a modular, take-apart design, the 30-ton unit can be moved into a building in two different sections, providing a reduced weight, smaller footprint, and improved maneuverability. Each piece fits in freight elevators and through doorways for convenience. When the unit is ready for installation, the sections can be rejoined.
On April 22, Danfoss welcomed the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee/Leon County at its facility in Tallahassee, FL, to discuss the impact of research and development and manufacturing operations on the local economy.
