The event, to be held in Copenhagen from January 23–24, will include a discussion on the performance of natural refrigerants in centrifugal compressors.
Stefan Elbel, CEO of U.S.-based Creative Thermal Solutions and a Professor and Researcher, says adapted three-fluid heat exchangers could make such systems feasible.
JBG-2, a Polish manufacturer of commercial refrigeration equipment, has found that its hybrid propane (R290) plug-in cabinets with waterloop system has helped a supermarket in Rastatt, Germany, cut its energy consumption by 8.8% compared to traditional plug-ins. Through better heat management during warmer summer months, JBG-2’s waterloop and hybrid plug-in units — which contain both…
The deal gives Carrier a strong foothold in the rapidly growing European heat pump market.
By pairing large heat pumps with a steam compressor, the Italian manufacturer was able to heat steam to 170°C (338°F).
The report includes data on installations of hydrocarbon cabinets in Europe and North America, and hydrocarbon chillers and domestic heat pumps in Europe.
AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and Ochsner Wärmepumpen Developing Low-Charge R290 Domestic Heat Pumps to Replace Gas Boilers
Its heat pump uses no more than 150g of propane in a multi-circuit system to provide space heating and domestic hot water.
The German manufacturer’s prototype compressor offers 40% higher cooling capacity than an R1234yf-based alternative of the same size.
The companies say the new three-year agreement will cover the production and distribution of ‘sustainable refrigeration solutions’ on a global scale.
