The refrigeration industry is facing unprecedented challenges to meet the Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. In an effort to help our customers meet these regulations, Emerson is launching new higher efficiency condensing units approved for all major alternative refrigerants.

These include medium pressure R-404A, R-448A and R-449A and low pressure R-134a, R-450A, and R-513A. As part of this launch, Emerson has redesigned units that use small hermetic compressors. This includes many F-Line, and all M-Line units.

The redesigned condensing unit platform will use next generation Copeland™ A*E compressors and optimize various other components including condenser coils, fan motors, receivers, etc.

Wholesale transitions will begin in October 2017 and will be completed on or before December 23, 2017, except for R-12 and R-22 compatible units, which will remain available until December 2018.
