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.
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.
- Capacities: From 50 to 2500 USRT (175 to 8800kW)
- Chilled water temperature: Up to 1ºC (34ºF) and -2ºC (28.5ºF) for brine
- Exhaust gas temperature: From 275 to 600ºC (525 to 1110ºF)
- COP: 1.4 - 1.45
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.
