Expelling Heat with ‘Dual’ Rotary Motor

Manufacturers are revamping commercial RAC PD (Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Positive Displacement) compressors according to tropical settings - tropicalized rotary technology - for enhanced efficiency against conventional rotary compressors or refrigeration compressors. The tropicalized rotary compressors provide stable operation at conditions exceeding 52 degrees Celsius, and chill the environment about 20% faster as compared to their traditional counterparts.

Commercial RAC PD compressors with brushless DC motor (BLDC) offer broader rotational frequency, ensuring rapid cooling, better efficacy, and drastic reduction in vibrational levels. An additional acoustic jacket is provided with the compressor to negotiate noise levels. The dual rotary motor regulates the speed of the compressors to maintain the desired levels of temperature, conserving energy and reducing electricity expenses.

The commercial RAC PD compressors ensure stable operation following phase difference of 180 degree in mutual compression of the twin rotary motors. Further, multiple-blade shaft in rotary commercial RAC PD compressors rotates inside the cylinder housing, forcing the refrigerant via the cylinder and compressing it accordingly.

Leveraging Eco-Friendly Refrigerants and Coolants

Concerns regarding escalating global warning are compelling manufacturers to go back to the drawing board and look for environment-friendly refrigerants - R600a (Iso-butane), and R290 (Propane). While the former is utilized for medium to large commercial applications, the latter is recommended as a replacement for household applications, and small commercial applications.

Propane and isobutane evaporate at lower temperatures and require lower compression pressure, making it significantly energy-efficient. The global warming potential (GWP) of iso-butane and propane is 3, noticeably low as compared to R22 - 1810, as well as have zero impact on ozone depletion. However, high flammability of isobutane and propane are restricting their applicability to domestic, and small-scale purposes, yet the advantages they offer outweigh the drawbacks if the R600a and R290 refrigerants are transported carefully.

Manufacturers are banking on solid refrigerants and coolants such as, neopentylglycol (NPG) in lieu of the existing liquid counterparts. The application of magnetic field, electric field, or mechanic force alters the microscopic structure of the solid refrigerants for imparting cooling and refrigeration. The molecules of NPG are comprised of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, which are nearly spherical and display weak interactions with each other. The weak chemical bonds allow the molecules to rotate relatively freely, resulting in significant thermal changes upon compression.

North America and East Asia to Offer a Platter of Opportunities

The intensifying quest for minimum food wastage is set to push North America to the driver’s seat of the commercial RAC PD compressor market, with East Asia showcasing promising growth. As per the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the consumption of HCFCs (R-22) is required to completely phase out by the next year, thereby compelling manufacturers to increase their R&D investments and activities. Moreover, Energy Star, the US EPA voluntary scheme, is providing business and individual rebates to establishments complying with environmental amendments. In addition, China will continue to offer greater opportunities for the regional players, as about 80% of the compressors manufactured in the country are utilized in air conditioning systems application for local end users.
