Tests on a 40-ton spool compressor with low GWP refrigerants are said to have demonstrated improved efficiency and performance compared to current compressor designs.
The spool compressor developed by Torad Engineering, and tested at the company’s 13,000ft² facility in Cumming, Georgia, is said to have been proven suitable for medium pressure refrigerants such as R134a, as well as low and ultra-low GWP refrigerants like R513A and HFO1234yf.
The spool compressor resembles a rotary vane compressor, but is described as being smaller, lighter and cheaper to manufacture than current technology. It has four main components: rotor, main housing, vane, and bearing housing.
