Tecumseh showcases new sustainable commercial refrigeration and cold chain solutions at Chillventa 2022

AL series compressor

Tecumseh Products Company LLC, a global leader and innovator in commercial refrigeration technology, will showcase its latest product portfolio at Chillventa 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany. Tecumseh’s booth will be located in Hall 5-332.

New compressor and condensing unit technologies to be unveiled at Chillventa include: the high-efficiency “AL” series compressor platform, optimized for R-290 refrigerants; new compressors and condensing units such as the FH2 series and Silensys Advanced, specifically optimized for A2L refrigerants; DC powered cooling and refrigeration technology for refrigerated transportation and mobile delivery solutions.

Tecumseh’s product portfolio is designed to advance the efficiency and sustainability of commercial refrigeration technology and positions Tecumseh as a complete “farm-to-fork” cold chain solutions provider beyond the segments. catering and food retail.

“AL” series compressor platform for R-290

The new Series AL Compressor platform makes its first public appearance at Chillventa. Its performance and energy efficiency are up to 15% higher in a very compact package compared to existing models on the market. In a quiet, small package estimated to be approximately 5% lower in height than competitive products, the AL Series models provide displacements up to 20cc and are designed specifically for L/MBP applications in refrigeration light commercial. The extended L/MBP operating range allows for standardized use in display cases, handheld coolers and ice machine applications.

The AL series, optimized for R-290 (propane) refrigerants, has capacities ranging from 1,240 to 1,800 Btu/h (0.36 kW to 0.52 kW) at LBP and 3,730 to 4,990 Btu/ h (1 to 1.5 kW) at MBP in EN12900 Conditions. It offers the same capacity as a larger displacement single-speed compressor, which leaves more room for the goods in the refrigeration units.

Extension of the portfolio with low GWP A2L refrigerants

As one of the first manufacturers in the refrigeration industry to introduce compressor designs optimized for A2L refrigerants such as R-455A, R-454C and R-1234yf, Tecumseh continues to expand its low-GWP portfolio. The new A2L-ready compressors can be used in indoor or outdoor condensing units ranging from 1 to 20 kW, making them the ideal solution for cold rooms, display cases, refrigerated cabinets and beverage dispensers in retail retail and foodservice.

In addition to A2L compatible compressors, such as the AE2, AJ2, FH2 and AG series, Tecumseh has deployed its A2L refrigerant technology in Silensys Advanced, the outdoor condensing unit that is often considered the benchmark in the industry.

These additions are highly efficient alternatives to mid-size system requirements that are too small for typical CO2-based systems and too large for an R-290-based system. With Tecumseh’s A2L offerings, design engineers at refrigeration OEM companies now have a more responsive approach to refrigerant transitions without compromising system efficiency while meeting low GWP requirements.

DC-powered variable-speed cooling and refrigeration for transport and electric mobility

Due to the recent increase in refrigerated transport of COVID-19 vaccines and the accelerated adoption of e-commerce perishable food deliveries, Masterflux, Tecumseh’s suite of DC electric compressor technologies, has generated demand important. Masterflux compressors which were originally designed in 2004 have expanded their full range of cooling and refrigeration solutions to electric and mobile vehicle refrigeration applications over time. More recently, Tecumseh has developed highly efficient mobile condensing units for refrigerated freight, electric vehicle battery cooling and mobile air conditioning.

Presentations by refrigeration experts

Technical Directors from Tecumseh will be presenting at industry expert presentations during Chillventa.

Lionel Audouy, Director of the Global Compressor Platform, will present “The best selection of refrigerants according to the cooling capacity needs of your application”. In this presentation, Audouy will explain when and why A2L refrigerants should be used in certain commercial refrigeration projects by reviewing several key case studies. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, October 11, from 1:40 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., in Hall 7A, Stand 7A-616.

Robert Terry, General Manager of the Masterflux Business Unit, will present “Improving Energy Efficiency in Electric Transport Refrigeration Using Variable Speed ​​DC Compressor Solutions”. Terry will discuss mobile refrigeration systems of transport refrigeration units using variable speed compressors; these are not only very energy efficient, but also able to control the temperature more precisely. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 12, from 11:40 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in Hall 7A, Stand 7A-616.
