According to Deepak Takkar, Senior VP – Emerson Climate India, the company continues to invest in the India business in terms of bringing in new products and technology, building infrastructure and investing in people. It is planning to launch
an extended range of variable speed compressors for inverter systems suitable for R410A with a wide frequency range of 15-120 Hz, high efficiency motor, extended operating envelop accommodating different speed ranges and use of Variable Volume Ratio (VVR) scroll for optimized COP at different pressure ratios in 3, 4 and 5 HP range, and for commercial applications in 7.5 and 10 HP in single and tandem configurations. It is also planning a new ECZ series of fractional HP refrigeration compressors for low, medium and high temperature applications. This series has dual
