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.
