Emerson’s Commercial and Residential Solutions Business

Emerson is pleased to announce our participation in the upcoming AHR Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Jan. 31–Feb. 2. We will be exhibiting in booth C3106 in the Central Hall, where our latest advancements in sustainable refrigeration technologies and solutions for CO2, R-290 and A2L refrigerants will be on display.

As the commercial refrigeration industry continues the transition to refrigerants with lower global warming potential (GWP), CO2 (or refrigerant R-744), R-290 (or propane) and A2L refrigerants are poised to play ever-expanding roles. Over the next several years, food retailers will face new regulatory compliance challenges that will impact their refrigeration system choices. At the same time, many have stated corporate sustainability objectives that are driving them toward the implementation of more environmentally friendly refrigeration technologies.

For retailers considering sustainable refrigeration strategies, Emerson is committed to helping them make this transition as easily as possible. At AHR Expo, we will be highlighting some of the latest developments for each of these refrigerant categories.

CO2 with confidence

Our comprehensive approach to CO2 refrigeration systems focuses on the seamless integration of compression controls, valves and related components. Our knowledgeable CO2 specialists will be on hand to lend their expertise, consult with you about your refrigeration goals, and advise you on how to:

  • Transition to low-GWP CO2 refrigeration with confidence
  • Simplify CO2 system complexities with advanced controls
  • Deploy CO2 in various climate zones throughout the country

Among the complete CO2 solutions on display will include:

  • Copeland™ 4MTLS transcritical CO2 semi-hermetic compressor
  • Copeland ZOD subcritical CO2 scroll compressor
  • Lumity™ E3 supervisory control for CO2 applications
  • Vilter™ HPLD single screw compressor
  • Copeland variable frequency drives (VFDs), EVM series
  • Emerson valves and controls
    • CV (120 bar [EEV])
    • CS3 (120 bar [pressure switch])
    • OMC
  • Lumity CC200 case control

Visit our booth to learn how each of these components is designed to maximize CO2 system performance and simplify installation, commissioning and operation throughout the lifecycle.

R-290 ready

Our booth will also allow you to explore new opportunities for efficient, low-GWP R-290 refrigeration in self-contained units. Recent increases in charge limits have set the stage for wider R-290 adoption and the potential for larger capacities. We will demonstrate how Emerson is focused on reducing energy consumption through our fixed and variable speed R-290 compression technologies. Our AHR Expo product portfolio will include:

  • Copeland™ horizontal variable speed scroll condensing unit (AHR Expo Innovation Awards Finalist)
  • Copeland VFDs, EVM series
  • Copeland ZB*KAU fixed speed scroll
  • Copeland variable speed hermetic reciprocating compressor and drive
  • Copeland fixed speed hermetic reciprocating compressors
  • Copeland M-Line condensing units
  • 100RB Series solenoid valve
  • Copper spun filter drier
  • PS4 pressure switch
  • BVS ball valve
  • Dixell™ XRi Series variable speed controls

Exploring the potential of A2Ls

For those interested in emerging A2L refrigerants, we will explore the potential for higher charge limits and how their broad applicability will provide additional refrigerant alternatives in the near future. We will demonstrate how we’re developing low-GWP A2L solutions designed to help retailers meet strict regulatory standards by:

  • Enabling higher charges than R-290 in self-contained equipment
  • Supporting remote condensing unit refrigeration in retail applications
  • Qualifying A2Ls in reliable and efficient Copeland scroll compressor platforms

So if you’re planning on attending AHR Expo, be sure to visit booth C3106 in the Central Hall. We look forward to meeting you and exploring how we can help you to meet your sustainability goals.

Raising the Bar on Innovation for Distributed Architectures

Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions

The food retail industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation. To stay competitive, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and store operators need solutions that promote integration, provide flexibility, but most importantly, produce relevant data insights. With the Copeland™ Indoor Modular Solution, Emerson has created the first end-to-end solution to the industry’s most pressing refrigeration challenges. Read more about this groundbreaking innovation in our recent E360 Product Spotlight.

Raising the Bar on Innovation for Distributed Architectures

Consumer preferences are prompting the creation of new — and often smaller — store formats. Corporate sustainability goals and environmental regulations are driving the expansion of new refrigeration technologies. And retailers need meaningful operational and energy performance data now — rather than after equipment fails, food safety is put at risk or higher-than-expected utility bills come rolling in.

OEMs and store operators require a smarter and more adaptable foundation on which to build for the future. In response, Emerson has introduced the Copeland Indoor Modular Solution. A 2020 AHR Innovation Award finalist, it seamlessly integrates refrigeration equipment with Emerson facility controls. It is the industry’s first all-in-one offering that includes hardware, software and services.

More capabilities in a low-profile package

Emerson’s Copeland™ Scroll variable speed compressors are trusted by OEMs for their superior reliability, efficiency, variable capacity and quiet operation. Likewise, Emerson’s ProAct™ Connect+ enterprise management software and lifecycle services help operators across the spectrum to unlock the full potential of their data.

The Copeland Indoor Modular Solution combines both to deliver:

  • High-caliber performance: The low-profile, quiet system enhances in-store customer experiences while the highly efficient modules perform well above the Department of Energy consumption targets for commercial refrigeration equipment.
  • Real-time access to data: Advanced electronics that easily integrate with facility controls help operators’ to monitor, triage and respond to issues.
  • Enterprise-level visibility: Remote monitoring of refrigeration, HVAC, lighting and other assets helps operators achieve their food quality, safety and energy performance goals.
  • Project certainty: Emerson-authorized technicians facilitate on-time, on-budget store launches.
  • Exceptional support: Emerson supports operators throughout the life of their stores with systems integration, commissioning, maintenance and aftermarket services.

Demonstrated value across the supply chain

The Copeland Indoor Modular Solution is designed for stores seeking to deploy distributed architectures. As a low-cost, small-footprint and low-maintenance alternative to traditional  large centralized systems and remote systems, it offers the adaptability that OEMs and operators require in today’s marketplace. But don’t let its slim profile deceive you. The Copeland Indoor Modular Solution is a workhorse that delivers advantages across the entire supply chain:

  • OEMs benefit from the configurability of Copeland products and a plug-in approach that accelerates time to market.
  • Store owners and operators benefit from Emerson technologies that can lower operating costs, provide precise refrigeration loads, help to prevent food loss, maximize merchandising space and ensure optimal in-store experiences.
  • Enterprise managers benefit from easy-to-deploy, standard refrigeration modules that minimize startup complexities and enable scalability for new stores; they also gain key insights into store performance, historic trends and outliers.

The industry-wide changes that are pushing OEMs and operators to be more flexible and adaptable are made more complicated by their interconnected nature. The innovative pairing of our comprehensive refrigeration portfolios with our proven solutions expertise equips stakeholders with the best toolset to overcome these challenges. In this respect, the Copeland Indoor Modular Solution is more than a data-driven solution.
