Compressors are a key component to refrigeration products, found in common household appliances like refrigerators and air conditioners. Compressors are the “heart” of such appliances, comparable to a car engine or even the human heart. Samsung Electronics is pleased to announce a breakthrough in compressor technology by successfully developing a lighter, more compact and more efficient Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor.
Samsung Electronics has reduced the weight and the size of the rotary compressor to about one-fourth of a conventional compressor, which is about the size of a 355ml soda can. By developing the Samsung mini rotary compressor, Samsung has acquired the technology to make current refrigerators, washing machines, etc even slimmer, quieter and energy efficient or even produce portable refrigeration products, thus home appliances for individual use.
The Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor combines high efficiency motor design technology, compressing technology that minimizes the loss of refrigerant, nano-manufacturing technology and control technology, all of which has resulted in a 35% increase in efficiency.
The Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor has a noise level similar to a library. This was possible through a ‘Twin Pump’ that features two press chambers that maintains a constant motor speed regardless of the load and ‘Torque Control’ technology.
The Twin Pump (Compressor) reduces the vibration up to 89% compared to the single compressor.
The Torque Control reduces vibration and keeps it low over all running frequency ranges – even up to 88% compared to the Twin rotary without it.. It achieves this by using a high-efficiency variable speed (BLDC) motor and sine wave control algorithms. The new mini compressor observes the load torque pattern, calculates the revolution of the motor ahead of time to feed-forward the torque control algorithm, which decreases the speed-pulsation up to 62%. Long story short, it’s smart and flexible in terms of distributing torque.
‘Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor’ is a breakthrough technology that could be utilized not only in home appliances, but also for example in camping tools or cooling jackets to provide heat and refrigeration. Moreover, it is compatible with AC power for households and DC power for vehicles, so uses are expected to cover a broad spectrum.
This new technology has been highly recognized by industry experts, and has been awarded the ‘Technology award’ for the AHR EXPO, which will be held in New York on the 21st of this month. Samsung Electronics will be participating in the AHR EXPO in New York and the Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor will be on display, with plans to promote its technology to HVAC&R in Japan, and Europe and China.
“Samsung Mini Rotary Compressor is the representation of all innovative technology,’ said Vice President Jonghwan Park of Samsung Electronics Home Appliances “With innovating the technology of compressor, which is the key to home appliances, Samsung will continue to produces high quality products.”
