Heat recovery from refrigeration plants
Due to the high amount of total electricity consumption, heat recovery (HR) from refrigeration equipment is an underestimated topic with high savings potential.
The use of an air-cooled condenser next to a boiler within a production plant shows the need for action. While one system consumes electricity and leaves waste heat unused, the heating system burns fossil fuels to generate the desired heat. In such a constellation, a heat recovery system can often be retrofitted or included in future planning. A well conceived planning of the heat recovery system ensures an improved efficiency of the refrigeration plant and supplies the heat “incidentally”, so that the operator benefits twice.
