Thermax exhaust fired absorption machines directly utilise waste heat from the Gas/diesel engine or turbine exhaust gases, micro turbine or fuel cell which helps in making air-conditioning almost free of cost. It also reduces the initial capital cost of the system, by downsizing the engine size; as additional power units required for electrical chillers is eliminated.
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.
Exhaust Fired Chillers
Heat recovery from multiple engines can also be done by single machine having separate dedicated tube banks to a particular engine thereby avoiding mixing of flue gases and back pressure.
These machines have been installed in shopping malls, multiplexes and commercial establishments and are finding favour in industrial segments, where a number of customers are opting for self-power generation.
