Tecumseh Introduces Celseon Air-Cooled Condensing Units
Tecumseh is pleased to announce the introduction of its new Celseon AK/AJ indoor air-cooled fractional horsepower condensing units. Celseon AK/AJ condensing units are designed specifically for refrigeration applications where reliable cooling is required under varying loads and operating conditions. Reliability starts with the compressor and at the heart of every Celseon condensing unit is a performance-proven Tecumseh compressor, built with exacting standards to handle the rigors of commercial refrigeration.
Celseon AK/AJ condensing units provide all the features and benefits of the AE series fractional HP Celseon offerings including modular design, popular features and ease of maintenance, while extending the capacity range from 1/3 HP to 1-¼ HP. Models are available in R134a and R404a, as well as R12, R22 and their replacement blends. The product is designed for today’s space-conscious environment, allowing maximization of the refrigerated cabinet while providing ease of maintenance and service for the field technician.
Celseon AK/AJ’s modular construction is built around three (3) common base plates, scaled to unit capacity, that accommodate an assortment of Tecumseh compressor models and standardized components. Options include power cord, service valves, liquid line receiver, filter-drier and sight glass. Simplified fastening methods have been incorporated thereby reducing assembly time and improving product quality. This design and construction translates to shorter lead times, less inventory and greater flexibility.
Additionally, Tecumseh’s all-new AE2 compressor will be integrated into Celseon AK/AJ condensing units as the respective compressor models are available. Following on the path of its predecessor, the AE2 delivers best-in-class efficiency, a smaller size envelope and Tecumseh’s industry known standard for reliability. The AE2 compressor supports traditional HFC refrigerants R134a and R404A and has been optimized for use with hydrocarbon refrigerant R290 (propane). ecumseh’s AE2 compressor has been tested and approved by major commercial refrigeration equipment manufacturers across the globe.
AE2 compressors provide cooling capacities comparable to some AK or AJ compressors, but in a physically smaller package. The same AE2 compressor housings, tubing sizes and tubing orientations will be used for both OEM and wholesale compressors and condensing units. This allows the use of a single compressor housing configuration, simplifying installation and replacement.
Celseon AK/AJ’s condensing units cover a capacity range from 1/3 to 1 HP for high, medium, and commercial temperature applications and 1/2 to 1-1/4th HP for low temperature applications. The units have a compact, modular design scaled to capacity that is space efficient, making it easy to integrate into equipment designs in order to maximize the refrigerated space.
The Celseon AK/AJ offering, including high efficiency AE2 compressor models, covers an expanded application and capacity range while reducing the number of condensing unit models.
Higher efficiency PSC (permanent split capacitor) condenser fan motors are standard on all Celseon AK/AJ models. An EC (Electronically Commutated) fan motor option will be announced at a later date
Options include power cord, service valves, liquid line receivers, filter-drier, and service valves. Sweat connections and electrical screw terminations are standard on every Celseon condensing unit, saving time and money.
