INNOVATION, MATCHED BY EFFICIENCY AND ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS
Today’s fast-paced business world is requiring companies to actively seek out new opportunities in order to keep up with the competition and gain a stronger foothold in the market.
While re-strategising their approaches to the changing environment, many companies opt to revamp their business models completely. These companies look to reinforce their core products and technology with upgrades and improvements that offer enhanced performance and more robust functionality. The drive to provide new products and services to stay relevant in the marketplace, not only helps companies thrive, but also provides mechanisms for growth and development across industries.
Cheol-hwan Kim, a lead researcher at LG Electronics, says the companies that will lead the HVAC industry in the future will be the ones developing innovative technologies while keeping their focus on efficiency and environmental issues.
Committing to innovation, LG has not only produced the best in compressor systems, but also pushed the boundaries of the technology. With this commitment, LG has now developed the game-changing R1 Compressor - a first of its kind. The idea of maintaining the efficiency of the scroll compressor, while exploiting the price competitiveness of a rotary compressor, with its oil management capabilities and simple structure, was behind the development of the R1.
The R1 Compressor can adjust performance to relative load conditions. As the market has shown increasing demand for smaller and faster compressors, LG has modified its inverter solution with a cutting-edge shaft-through structure and bottom compression technology. The conventional top compression function positions the compression segment on the top of the shaft, which suffers from tilt issues if the motor operates at low velocity when a system runs low-load air conditioning. In order to compensate for this issue, a conventional compressor must apply back pressure to the orbiting scroll - of the compression part - to reduce friction loss. Eliminating the tilting issue, the new bottom compression and shaft-through structure ensures highly stable operation, even during low-load condition and further boosts operating efficiency.
Under this structure developed by LG’s time-tested HVAC expertise, the LG R1 compressor offers unparalleled performance and lower energy consumption for quality and user satisfaction that tops those of its competitors.
The LG R1 compressor is incorporated within the LG heat pump range and commercial split systems.
