Danfoss, the pioneer of oil-free, magnetic-bearing, variable-speed centrifugal compressors and a manufacturer of other high-efficiency components and controls for air-conditioning and refrigeration systems, recently named Mads-Peter Clausen vice president, oil-free-technology development.
In this new role, Clausen will be responsible for the coordination and development of the company’s oil-free-technology portfolio, which includes award-winning Danfoss Turbocor magnetic-bearing centrifugal compressors for high-efficiency water-cooled and air-cooled chillers.
“As HVACR energy-efficiency and refrigerant regulations and standards grow, we expect the demand for ultraefficient solutions to accelerate,” Ricardo Schneider, president, Danfoss Turbocor Compressors, said. “Mads-Peter will help us to expand Danfoss’ oil-free portfolio beyond the current products and applications.”
Clausen has been with Danfoss for 14 years, having served in various roles around the world, including vice president, appliance controls and senior associate, mergers and acquisitions. In 2014, he was elected to serve as a member of the Danfoss Board of Directors, a position he continues to hold. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and production engineering from the University of Southern Denmark and an MBA from the University of Georgia.
Clausen is based in Tallahassee, Fla., which is home to Danfoss Turbocor Compressors’ manufacturing facility and the new Danfoss Application Development Center, which is set to open later this year.
