The NEX is the fourth generation of the NE R290 compressor family from Embraco, after the NE, NEK and NEU. It is a solution known for its robustness and reliability. The NEX is suitable for food retail and, particularly, food service refrigeration equipment, such as display cases, ice makers, professional kitchen refrigerators, beverage coolers and blast chillers.
In comparison with previous generations, the NEX R290 compressor from Embraco has an increase in maximum displacement from 18.7cc to 21cc, delivering a maximum cooling capacity of 1,620W in MBP conditions, which is 24% higher than the NEU. With such a cooling capacity, it can replace the NT platform in some applications, being 25 millimeters smaller and 30% lighter. It also can deliver between 7% and 10% more energy efficiency in comparison with the NEU, in LBP conditions, all combined with lower noise.
It works on natural refrigerant R290 (propane), thus having no ozone depletion potential and global warming potential close to zero. The Embraco NEX compressor is manufactured in Nidec Global Appliance’s production site in Slovakia, where the product’s innovative features granted it, in 2020, an innovation award given by the Slovak Innovation and Energy Agency (SIEA).
