New tool helps customers evaluate CO2 components and compatible accessories for optimal system design
ST. LOUIS, June 13, 2016 — Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a company of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has announced it will launch its CO2 Information Tool, designed to support customers shifting to CO2 systems and applications, during ATMOsphere America June 16 and 17 in Chicago.
The new tool will allow customers to easily access information related to Emerson’s CO2 products. Based on a user’s selection of geographic region and product category, a listing of relevant components and accessories is displayed. In addition, important product-specific information is listed. Due to the low critical point and high operating pressures of CO2 systems, components are required to meet specific pressure ratings to account for these characteristics. The information provided by the CO2 Information Tool will assist customers in further evaluating components to meet their system needs.
“We see CO2-based refrigeration systems quickly becoming a leading option for retailers seeking to meet environmental and energy targets,” said Andre Patenaude, director, CO2 business development, Emerson Climate Technologies. “As a component manufacturer providing complete CO2 system components in one place, from scroll and semi-hermetic CO2 compressor technology to onboard diagnostics, electronic expansion valves and CO2 high-pressure controllers, Emerson feels this information tool will be a critical piece in helping customers research and choose the best components for a CO2 application.”
Patenaude will present a technomercial during the lunch hour on Thursday, June 16, on subcritical compressors designed for optimized use in NH3 and CO2 refrigeration systems. The Helix Innovation Center, located on the University of Dayton campus in Ohio, is the ideal location for the creation of a new lineup of CO2 subcritical low-temperature open drive compressors. The $35 million Innovation Center features a real-world testing environment to enable optimization of components and system design.
Emerson will also host the welcome reception at The Westin Michigan Avenue from 6–8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15, to kick off ATMOsphere America.
