Low-carbon has become a principal objective of sustainable development for China and the compressor, as the core component of a refrigerator, plays a role of prime importance regarding energy conservation. Embraco, a global company and leader in the compressor market for refrigeration, produces the highest efficient products, contributing to reduce hazardous emission. Some of its latest solutions were found at China Refrigeration 2011, the most influential trade show in Asia for the commercial compressor industry.
“It is a very important place for Embraco to communicate with the market, feel the market trends and collect market feedback of the products displayed”, explains Tao Zhang, Manager of Asia Regional Marketing. The 22nd International Exhibition for Refrigeration, Air-conditioning, Heating and Ventilation, Frozen Food Processing, Packaging and Storage (China Refrigeration) took place from April 7 to 9, in the Shanghai New Int'l Expo Centre.
Embraco will present three products which meet different needs of its clients globally. EMT is Embraco’s first compact compressor for commercial cooling applications up to 1,200 Btu/h. Targeting the high efficiency segment of the market, it is designed for commercial refrigerators, freezers and bottle coolers. The EM platform, of which EMT is part, is widely used in household refrigeration due to its high efficiency, compact dimensions and low noise levels. All of these features are present in the commercial version with added robustness, explains Tao Zhang.
The NTU series ranges from 7,000 to 10,000 Btu/h ARI and is 20% more energy efficient than the existing NT product line. It also has patented features, such as a suction muffler with liquid handling capability which considerably enhances its performance in applications, such as ice makers.
VNEK is Embraco’s first variable speed compressor for commercial cooling compatible with natural fluids. VNEK further distinguishes itself with a wider application range than other variable capacity products, due to its 12cc pump. Additionally, it is up to 25% more energy efficient and achieves a 20% reduction in pull-down time when compared to On-Off compressors.
We will also display EMD mini compressor, which is the highest efficiency (COP: 2.10W/W) compressor in Embraco.
