"One of our goals was to show that you can cool such items as equipment, boards and electronic components using refrigeration equipment with compressors," says the manager of Business Development of Embraco, Edu Machado.
Applications include electronics, automotive and portable refrigerators
With this technological innovation, Embraco is targeting the electronics market segment, as the microcompressor may be used in a range of applications, such as information technology, telecommunications, as well as equipment for the medical and military areas.
"In addition to the applications in the electronics market segment, the microcompressor has already sparked interest in such segments as portable refrigerators, personal cooling and the automotive industry, says the manager of Business Development of Embraco, Edu Machado.
The microcompressor’s features include:
- refrigerant R-600a or R-134a
- small size - dimensions 25x100mm (model 25) and 50x130mm (model 50)
- low weight
- high efficiency
- the absence of oil in the internal mechanism, which means it can operate in any position, and also reduces the environmental impact
