Copeland Corp., Sidney, OH, an Emerson company and part of the Emerson Climate Technologies business group, has announced the production of its 500,000th Copeland scroll compressor with the environmentally sound HFC refrigerant R-410A. “This is more than a manufacturing milestone for Copeland,” says Scott Barbour, executive vice president of the company’s air conditioning division. “Reaching one-half million R-410A scroll compressors in the marketplace is a strong indicator of the refrigerant’s proven performance.” Copeland says its analysis of the residential installation base suggests that R-410A will represent more than 30% of the market by 2006. R-410A products are now available through all major air conditioning equipment manufacturers, including Carrier, Trane, Lennox, Amana, Rheem and York.
