Panasonic rotary compressors are preferred to the others due to their high efficiency, improved lubrication of high volume oil pump and accumulator has larger refrigerant capacity.
The compressors come in 9000Btu, 12000Btu, 18000Btu, 24000Btu and 36000Btu capacities.
Panasonic R2 rotary compressors are the new generation of compressors with new technology improvements, enhanced materials and simple design ensure R2 compressors are reliable, efficient and quiet. Panasonic R2 compressors are available in R410A fixed speed and inverter applications.
How does a Panasonic Rotary compressor work?
R2 compressors are rolling piston rotary compressors. The heart of the rotary compressor is the cylinder which houses the piston and the vane. The vane maintains constant contact with the piston as the piston rolls along the inside wall of the cylinder. As the piston rotates, gas is compressed into an increasingly smaller area until the discharge pressure is reached, releasing gas into the shell chamber. At the same time, more gas comes in through the suction port, enabling a continuous process of suction and discharge.
The simple design and symmetry of the cylinder components, combined with a special coating and premium materials, provide a highly durable and reliable product, rotation after rotation.
What SEER range does the Panasonic Rotary compressor support?
R2 compressors are found in air conditioning products featuring the very latest technology and offering the highest efficiency on the market today. Our R2 compressors are engineered specifically for this SEER efficiency requirement. Combined with the inherently simply design of the rotary, this results in a high desirable and impressively economical solution.
What makes Panasonic Rotary compressor so reliable?
Changes to the construction and material of internal components enables the R2 compressor to reliably operate with an above average maximum discharge pressure. A Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating on the vane, along with enhanced steel materials, significantly reduces wear and increases durability.
What makes a Panasonic Rotary compressor so quiet?
The structure of the R2 compressor mechanism has been redesigned to increase stability and reduce vibration. Specifically, the compressor has an upper cylinder discharge, an enhanced fixed upper bearing, and reduced friction in the cylinder parts. The lower discharge and muffler in the dual piston compressors also enables lower noise levels. As a result, this new design optimizes efficiency and minimizes noise.
How do R2 rotary compressors compare to scroll and reciprocating compressors?
R2 rotary compressors are very similar to some scroll compressors in overall performance, including efficiency and reliability. The simple and symmetrical key components contribute to the R2 compressor’s reliability, light weight, compact size, and economical applied cost, without sacrificing the key performance requirements of high efficiency and low noise levels.
Which refrigerants can be used with Panasonic Rotary compressor?
Panasonic has R2 Rotary Compressors available for R410A applications.
