Emerson has added three additional models to its Copeland Scroll KA compressor lineup in 2019: the ZF06KA, Source: EmersonSource: EmersonZF09KA 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.

  • 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

ZS*KA models are suited for walk-in, reach-in, cooler, soft serve and frozen carbonated beverage-type applications and operate 8 to 22% more efficiently than standard reciprocating compressors with 70% fewer moving parts.

ZF*KA models are intended 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 suited 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.

The ZF06KA and ZS20KA will be available in the spring of 2019, and the ZF09KA will be available in the fall of 2019.
