Compressor handling 3.1.1 Transport and storage WARNING Risk of collapse! Personal injuries! Move compressors only with appropriate mechanical or handling equipment according to weight. Keep in the upright position.
If the compressors are mounted in tandem or used in parallel, then the hard mountings (bolt M9 5/16") are recommended. The mounting torque should be 27 ± 1 Nm.

3.3.2 Brazing procedures for ZR*KRE compressors in parallel applications Only compressor models officially approved by Emerson in the qualified configuration may be used for parallel applications. For ZR*KRE compressors in parallel applications with passive oil management, additional precautions shall be taken before brazing the oil and gas equalization ports.
Refer to Appendix 1 for proper tightening torques. NOTE: More information about adaptors and shut-off valves can be found in the Emerson spare parts software, available at www.climate.emerson.com/en-gb/tools-resources. Pressure safety controls 3.5.1 High-pressure protection...
This will prevent oil dilution and bearing stress on initial start-up. The crankcase heater must remain energized during compressor off cycles. NOTE: Please refer to the Spare Parts list available at www.climate.emerson.com/en-gb/tools- resources for correct crankcase heater model selection. Caution: Crankcase heaters must be properly grounded! For installation, the manufacturer/installer shall follow the recommendations below.
Discharge gas temperature protection IMPORTANT Inadequate lubrication! Scroll set damage! All ZR*KRE compressors must be equipped with a discharge gas temperature protection. A good system control shall prevent the system from operating outside the published operating envelope and acceptable superheat range, whatever the climatic conditions and the capacity demand.
Figure 13: Advanced Scroll Temperature Protection (ASTP) NOTE: Depending on the heat build-up in the compressor, it may take more than one hour for the ASTP and motor protector to reset. 3.8.4 Discharge line thermostat ZR92KRE compressors have no internal discharge gas temperature protection. Therefore, an external discharge line thermostat must be installed.
▪ Snap the retainer clip over the tube and onto the thermostat. ▪ The thermostat should be placed on the discharge tube so that its body is in upward position on a horizontal tube installation. ▪ Ensure that the thermostat is not tilted. ▪...
Systems with multiple compressor applications (two, three, or more) require additional oil balancing qualification between the parallel compressors. A sample compressor equipped with an external oil sight tube can be ordered from Emerson for lab testing. During the tests, records of the evaporating temperature and the bottom shell temperature shall be taken with a high sampling rate.
migration, defrost, in reversible systems switching between the operation modes, load changes, fans or pumps cycling at low load and more. To evaluate the risk of liquid flood-back please refer to the oil dilution chart in Figure 16. Liquid level and superheat at compressor inlet have to be checked.
Electrical connection General recommendations The compressor terminal box has a wiring diagram on the inside of its cover. Before connecting the compressor, ensure the supply voltage, the phases and the frequency match the nameplate data. Electrical installation WARNING Conductor cables! Electrical shock! Shut off power supply before undertaking any task on electrical equipment.
Three-phase compressors (TF*) with internal motor protection: Power circuit Control circuit Motor terminal connections Three-phase compressors are connected to the T1, T2 and T3 connections Legend B1 ..Room thermostat K1 ..Contactor B3 ..Discharge gas thermostat R2 ..Crankcase heater F1 ..
Ensure correct connection of cables to the compressor terminal Fusite to avoid local overheating. Cable glands have an influence on the protection class of the terminal box. Emerson strongly recommends to use appropriate cable glands according to EN 50262 in order to reach the rated protection class.
Emerson subjects all scroll compressors to a high-voltage test after final assembly. Each motor phase winding is tested according to EN 60034-1 at a differential voltage of 1000 V plus twice the nominal voltage.
made with the compressor charged with refrigerant. Carry out the test with a lower voltage, as described above. Disconnect all electronic devices, eg, motor protection module, fan speed control, etc prior to testing. AGL_AC_ST_ZRKRE_E_Rev01...
System contamination! Bearing malfunction! Use only dry inert gases (for example nitrogen) for leak testing. DO NOT USE other industrial gases. The compressor has been leak-pressure tested in the Emerson factory. Therefore, it is not necessary for the system manufacturer/installer to leak-pressure test the compressor again on the assembly/system.
axially seal with the scroll set, with the higher pressure on the floating seal. Consequently, until the pressures equalise, the floating seal and scroll set can be held tightly together. The highest demands are placed on the leak-proof design of the installation and on the leak testing methods –...
Rotation direction Scroll compressors, like several other types of compressors, will only compress in one rotational direction. Direction of rotation is not an issue with single-phase compressors since they will always start and run in the proper direction. All other three-phase compressors will rotate in either direction depending upon phasing of the power.
Minimum run time 5.13 Emerson recommends a maximum of 10 starts per hour. There is no minimum off time because scroll compressors start unloaded, even if the system has unbalanced pressures. The most critical consideration is the minimum run time required to return oil to the compressor after start-up. To establish the minimum run time, a sample compressor equipped with an external oil sight glass is available from Emerson.
Maintenance & repair WARNING Conductor cables! Electrical shock! Follow the lockout/tag out procedure and the national regulations before carrying out any maintenance or service work on the system. Use compressor with grounded system only. Screwed electrical connections must be used in all applications. Refer to original equipment wiring diagrams. Electrical connections must be made by qualified electrical personnel.
Leak checking shall be carried out with the following frequency: (a) once per year if the system contains between 5 and <50 tonnes CO (b) once every 6 months if the system contains between 50 and <500 tonnes CO (c) once every 3 months if the system contains more than 500 tonnes CO NOTE: The leak checking frequency can be halved if permanent leak detection systems are fitted.
Since POE holds moisture more readily than mineral oil it is more difficult to remove it through the use of vacuum. Compressors supplied by Emerson contain oil with low moisture content, and it may rise during the system assembling process. Therefore it is recommended that a properly sized filter-drier is installed in all POE systems.
Oil additives Although Emerson cannot comment on any specific product, from our own testing and past experience, we do not recommend the use of any additives to reduce compressor bearing losses or for any other purpose.
Troubleshooting Most in-warranty electrical failures are a result of mechanical problems (particles in the oil, liquid refrigerant in the oil, etc.) and most mechanical problems are a result of system problems. Unless the reason for the failure is found, replacing the compressor will probably lead to another compressor failure.
Condition Cause Corrective action Compressor Check if there is continuity on the compressor external protector. If motor the compressor is warm, it may require considerable time to cool protector open down. Defective Check if the pressure control or thermostat works properly or if the system control controls are open.
Cause Corrective action Excessive Too high Make sure the compressor operates within the acceptable discharge compressor superheat range published by Emerson. temperature superheat Excessive cooling / Check the load design. Make sure that proper insulation is heating load or applied. Correct it as necessary.
