Exhaust Gas Heat for Chillers
The licensing authority in the UK uses Thermax direct exhaust gas chiller to generate chilled water to take away heat from the license printing machines and also for air-conditioning the new office building. The exhaust gas heat and the low temperature jacket water from a 1.2MWe gas engine, drives the chiller. The overall system efficiency of the plant is over 90%.
Thermax has also supplied chillers to a district cooling plant in Barcelona. A direct exhaust gas chiller, driven by the exhaust gas from a battery of three gas engines of 3.3 MWe each, delivers 5 MW of cooling. The jacket water from the engines is combined to drive a single 3.5 MW hot water chiller.
