Thermax’s chiller-heater of 600 TR produces chilled water at 6.6oC, which is circulated through the Air Handling Units (AHUs) catering to their comfort cooling requirements in office buildings, production plant building, panel rooms and drive rooms. Steam, the driving heat source for the chiller-heater is produced using two Thermax’s natural gas fired boiler of capacity 35 TPH each. The chiller-heater consumes 2.6 TPH of steam and the balance steam is used in the paper manufacturing process, resulting in zero waste of steam.
The chiller-heater also produces hot water at 90oC, which is used as feed water for the boilers. The boiler is fed with partially heated water, which reduces the consumption of natural gas.
