Tecumseh announced the launch of the TA2, a high efficiency house - hold refrigerator compressor with a cooling capacity of 300 to 800 BTU/h that is optimized for use with eco-friendly hydrocarbon refrigerant R600a (Isobutene). The TA2 series compressor delivers a 20% improvement in efficiency in comparison to its predecessor, a key factor for household refrigerator manufacturers. This is especially important considering the new mandated and voluntary energy requirements being imposed across the globe.
Another significant advancement with the TA2
series compressor is its compact size. The TA2
is 5% smaller in overall height than the current market leader, allowing refrigerator manufacturers to reduce the size of their equipment compartment in order to provide more space for refrigerated food.
