Benefits of Scroll Compressors
Scroll Compressor History
First invented in 1905 in France the scroll was first envisioned to be used as a steam rotary engine but the technology of the time couldn’t produce the proper casting to make it usable for the rotary steam system.
Scroll compressors for air conditioners and heat pump applications are now available in three different types as manufactured by Copeland. The typical standard scroll compressor, the two-stage compressor which can run at 66% and at 100% depending on demand, and the newer modulating scroll compressor that can modulate based on demand. The most energy efficient compressor being the modulating compressor.
