Discover the advantages of Tecumseh's broad range of energy efficient and reliable reciprocating compressors for household refrigerators and freezers, air-conditioning and commercial refrigeration applications including foodservice to walk-in coolers.
What is a Reciprocating Compressor?
A hermetic reciprocating compressor uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver refrigerant at high pressure from the low side to the high side of a refrigeration system.
Why Tecumseh Reciprocating?
In 1938, Tecumseh revolutionized the refrigeration industry with the first hermetically sealed reciprocating compressor. They have provided 75+ years of industry leadership in reciprocating compressors for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. Today, they continue to lead the way by designing energy efficiency, quiet operation and reliability into every new compressor they produce.
High efficiency Tecumseh rotary compressors provide enhanced reliability, reduced sound and maximum flexibility with vertical and horizontal installation options for air conditioning and refrigeration applications.
What is a Rotary Compressor?
Rotary hermetic compressors use the rotating action of a roller inside a cylinder to compress the refrigerant. Rotaries, by design, include less parts than other types of compression technology and provide an alternative, efficient option for various applications.
Tecumseh installed its first HR rotary compressor in an air conditioning application in 1957 where it remained reliably in service for more than 40 years. Today’s modern air conditioning and commercial refrigeration applications require high efficiency combined with the ability to utilize more eco-friendly refrigerants. Tecumseh rotary compressors continue to lead the way.
The Tecumseh VS Series scroll compressors offer the latest in efficiency and reliability. They are designed for commercial applications and have passed extensive durability and endurance tests to assure excellent performance.
What is a Scroll Compressor?
Scroll compressors utilize two offset spiral disks allowing for concurrent suction, compression and discharge cycles as the gas passes through the mechanism.
Why Tecumseh Scroll?
Their design is referred to as fixed scroll, in which one of the scrolls is fixed and the other scroll orbits. The VS Series scroll from Tecumseh is a specially designed, high efficient compressor for the refrigeration market. Models are available in R404A/R507 in Low and Commerical Temperature. Tecumseh's scroll compressor provides you with a choice in today's refrigeration market.
Their wide range of condensing units is backed by 75+ years of experience. From small evaporative condensate units to large outdoor condensing units, you'll find the right product from Tecumseh.
What is a Condensing Unit?
A condensing unit typically is a high side assembly of a refrigeration system. It is an assembly of compressor, condenser, fan motor, controls and a mounting plate. It has the function of a heat exchanger to cool down and condensate the incoming refrigerant vapor into liquid and a fan for blowing outside air through the heat exchanger section to cool the refrigerant inside. Condensing units have various designs and come in many sizes ranging from small household appliance units to very large industrial scale units used in factory processes.
Why Tecumseh Condensing Units?
Ready to install - Tecumseh continues to pioneer the design and development of condensing units for various applications. They offer a complete range of air and water-cooled, indoor and outdoor condensing units for commercial refrigeration applications.
