Direct fuel fired double effect machines have a furnace as an integral part of the high temperature generator, where a variety of liquid or gaseous fuels can be fired to drive the absorption machine.
TRIPLE EFFECT CHILLER
Thermax is the first absorption chiller manufacturer in the world to commercialise the ultimate in absorption technology – the Triple Effect Absorption Chiller. This is a major breakthrough in the field of refrigeration and air-conditioning. Triple effect absorption chillers have a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 1.8, which is nearly 30% higher than the double effect absorption chillers. This helps the user to reduce the energy requirement for cooling significantly.
