Copeland, a global provider of sustainable climate solutions, has optimized its major air-conditioning (AC) and refrigeration compressor platforms to be compatible with A2L refrigerants. These optimized compressors not only ensure reliable performance but also improve overall efficiency. As the industry looks to transition to lower global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants, Copeland is at the forefront of providing solutions that meet sustainability goals and environmental regulations.
In preparation for the wider adoption of A2L refrigerants, Copeland has qualified various components for use with these refrigerants. This includes rotalock service fittings and electronic componentry, such as onboard compressor protection, variable frequency drives (VFDs), contactors, and sealed relays. The company's commitment to safety and reliability extends to its investment in A2L product development facilities, including testing rooms, life testing stands, power electronics labs, and psychrometric chambers.
By optimizing their compressor platforms for A2L refrigerants, Copeland is helping the HVACR industry transition to more environmentally friendly alternatives while ensuring optimal performance and energy efficiency.
