Embraco launched its new VES series of variable cooling capacity (VCC) reciprocating compressors in 2015, which offer industry-leading efficiency and silence.
To achieve better food preservation, refrigeration systems need to be able to perform fast cooling and precise temperature control. Fast cooling speeds up formation of ice crystals, which can maximize nuritional preservation, while precise temperature control can drastically reduce microorganism growth, which supports extended food storage life. This requires a compressor that can operate across a wide cooling capacity range.
Because the reciprocating compressor’s lubricant system is based on centrifugal force, it has limitations at low operating speeds. With Embraco’s newly designed lubricant system, the new VESF model in the VES series can operate at 950 rpm, which delivers additional energy savings and precise temperature control for the refrigeration system. At 950 rpm, the compressor’s noise level is around 26 dB, which provides a more comfortable environment for endusers.
