Chiller-heater in the UAE
The Absorption Cooling & Heating division’s 600 TR chiller-heater has replaced the existing electrical chiller at the Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing Company LLC in the UAE. Thermax’s installation has resulted in saving 4.81 million units of electricity annually for the customer and has also helped them in reducing carbon emissions by 3,302 tonnes, equivalent to planting 3,30,240 trees per annum. The energy-efficient chiller-heater produces chilled water at 6.6°C, which is circulated through the Air Handling Units (AHUs) to aircondition office buildings, production plant building, panel rooms and drive rooms. The hot water produced at 90°C is used as feed water for the boilers, resulting in the reduction of heat required in the steam generation process. Steam, which is the driving heat source for the chiller-heater, is produced using two Thermax’s natural gas-fired boilers of capacity 35 TPH each.
