Embraco EMC Compressor Now Available in the U.S.

ATLANTA, Ga. – Embraco has introduced an industry-leading and environmentally friendly refrigeration solution, the EMC Compressor, into the U.S. market.

The EMC Compressor is an innovative compressor that uses natural refrigerant R290. It is designed for use in beverage coolers, vending machines, under-counter coolers and reach-ins. The EMC Compressor is one of the world’s most efficient single-speed compressors, consuming up to 30 percent less energy than traditional compressors currently sold in the United States. It features a smaller platform, with an extended cooling capacity that can replace larger compressors, releasing more internal space for the refrigerators.

Recognized with an Honorable Mention by the AHR Innovation Awards, the EMC Compressor works with zero ozone depletion potential and nearly zero global warming potential, allowing manufacturers to meet the refrigerant regulation proposed by the EPA SNAP program. Additionally, a cabinet using the EMC Compressor met the Energy Star Version 4.0 specification for commercial refrigerators and freezers that will take effect on March 27.
