Emerson will release three additional models to its Copeland Scroll KA compressor lineup in 2019: the ZF06KA, ZF09KA, and ZS20KA. The ZF*KA model compressors are meant for low-temperature refrigeration applications, while the ZS*KA model compressors are designed for extended medium- to high-temperature refrigeration applications.

The addition of these three new capacity models extends the product offering for low- and extended medium-temperature applications:

  • Low-temperature – ZF03, ZF04, ZF05, ZF06 (new), ZF07, ZF09 (new)
  • Extended medium-temperature – ZS09, ZS11, ZS13, ZS15, ZS19, ZS20 (new), ZS21, ZS26, ZS29, ZS33
  • Medium-temperature – ZB06, ZB07, ZB08
  • The ZF06KA and ZS20KA will be available in the spring of 2019, and the ZF09KA will be available in the fall of 2019.

ZS*KA models are intended for extended medium temperature refrigeration type duty. According to Emerson, they are suited for walk-in, reach-in, cooler, soft serve, and frozen carbonated beverage-type applications and operate 8 to 22 percent more efficiently than standard reciprocating compressors with 70 percent fewer moving parts. 

ZF*KA models are intended for low-temperature refrigeration type duty and are ideally suited for applications such as walk-in freezers and reach-ins. ZF*KA models are wide-ranging, multi-refrigerant capable with lower sound and vibration, and are intended for use in supermarkets, restaurants, and convenience stores. 

The ZF*KA, low-temperature compressors were recently recognized with the AHR Expo’s Innovation Award in the refrigeration category as well as the Dealer Design Gold Award in the refrigeration and ice machines category earlier this year.
