A Sabroe ammonia heat pump will boost the district heating capacity at Vattenfall’s Berlin-Buch combined heating and power plant, avoiding 620 metric tons of CO2e a year.
A new plan published by the Scottish Energy Advisory Board emphasizes heat pumps as key to decarbonization efforts, but plans are hampered by U.K. electricity charges.
The heat exchangers can raise the evaporation temperature of the ammonia refrigerant on the cold side and lower the condensing temperature on the hot side, increasing the energy efficiency, says Alfa Laval.
The installations are mainly in Europe, but GEA is experiencing increasing interest in natural refrigerant-based heat pumps in North America as well.
The new 273 S ammonia heat pump can deliver up to 95°C heat with ‘minimal energy needed.’
The Finnish plate-and-shell heat-exchanger specialist aims to boost its presence on the North American markets and expand globally.
The replacement of a 10-year-old CO2 heat pump will increase the system COP from 3 to a yearly average of 5 to 5.5.
The free website contains a variety of resources aiming to help companies achieve net-zero goals coming out of COP26.
The heat pump is equipped with a compressor offering double the capacity of previous models and is suitable for industrial applications and district heating.
A chiller’s waste heat should be used with a heat pump, and not with a gas boiler, says J&E Hall expert.
