The current Copeland Scroll K5 refrigeration compressor incorporates variable volume ratio technology, which optimizes low-condensing performance, and enhanced vapor injection capability for maximum capacity at low set points without having to add more or larger compressors.

Other energy efficient advantages include:

• 10-100% capacity modulation, which allows for extremely precise temperature and pressure control for energy efficiency improvements and cycling reduction.

• Enhanced vapor injection capability, which is said to increase system capacity by 50% and efficiency by 20% on average at low temperature rating condition.

CoreSense Diagnostics, which provides advanced protection, monitoring capabilities and maintenance cost savings.

• Discharge temperature control module, which controls liquid injection via electronic expansion valves, cooling the compressor when required.

• Digital solenoid control, which cycles the digital solenoid based on the required capacity signal from the master controller, eliminating the need for a separate digital controller.

Approved for use with R-404A, R-407A/C/F, R-134a and R-22 refrigerants, the new Copeland Scroll K5 digital refrigeration compressor is designed for use in both stand-alone and parallel systems.
