Heat Pump For Water Heating
Heat Pump represents the system that ‘pump’ or move heat from one place to another by using a compressor and a circulating structure of liquid or gas refrigerant, through which heat is extracted from outside sources and pumped indoors.
Pumping the heat uses less electricity as compared to when electricity is solely used as a means to convert it. Heat pumps represent the most efficient alternative to fuel, oil, and electric systems in regards to both heating and cooling. Gas does a relatively good job, rated close to 98 percent efficient, however, they do not represent a long term solution from a carbon footprint aspect. Heat pumps supply more heating and cooling capacity than the amount of electricity used to run them. Properly designed and installed heat pumps regularly attain more than 300 percent efficiency.
These running costs are prone to be lower than the ones of the previous systems, the mere difference being what system are you switching from. For instance, if you switch from gas, this will give you the lowest saving figures, while a typical home shifting from electricity could annually save more in thousands.
Some top advantages:
1) Lower Running Cost
2) Less Maintenance
4) Less Carbon emission
5) Provide Cooling
6) Long Life Span
Air-conditioning systems transfer heat from one location to another through work that typically consumes electricity. Heat is drawn into the system to provide indoor cooling while heat leaves the system in the form of wasted heat at the condenser. The amount of wasted heat can be 25% more than the cooling that the process creates. The ability to capture and use this waste heat is known as heat recovery, since the waste heat is recovered and used for other purposes, including heating hot water. Although this process is not new, the benefits of heat recovery are even greater today. The use of heat recovery to generate hot water can reduce the total energy needs of a building.
The heat reclaims chiller can produce water temperatures up to 135 F when it is operating. When available, this can be sufficiently warm enough to satisfy many applications. However, some applications may need to ensure that a source of hot water warmer than 135 F is always available. When the building cooling load is satisfied, the heat reclaims chiller must shut off to ensure the chilled water loop is not overcooled. At this point, hot water will not be generated by the heat reclaim chiller. This system can capture heat from the heat reclaim chiller when it is available and provide hot water at a temperature needed for the specific application
The input heat energy from Capstone MicroTurbineheats the LiBr solution. The vapor produced by the solution heats the heating water or hot water in tubes, while condensate returns to the solution to be heated and the cycle repeats. As "separate heating" is adopted, the heating cycle becomes very simple, just like a vacuum boiler. Therefore, the lifespan of the chiller can be doubled. A separate heat exchanger can provide dedicated hot water while cooling or heating operation is stopped. So, only BROAD has the unique technology in the world that can realize "three functions in one unit": cooling, heating, and hot water simultaneously or dedicatedly. (Fig. Below)
