Georgia-US based adsorption chiller manufacturer Power Partners, Inchas announced the availability of trigeneration packages using its ECO-MAX™ adsorption chillers.
ECO-MAX adsorption chillers, which convert waste heat into chilled water for air conditioning or process use, can be driven by the waste heat from factory processes, CHP or solar thermal collectors.
Mike Stonecipher, ECO-MAX Chillers Business Segment Leader for Power Partners, says: “With increasing electricity rates – as well as pressure to cut expenses, increase air quality and reduce emissions – commercial, industrial and utility companies and other types of organizations are seeking ways to use energy more efficiently.”
“Trigeneration is becoming a preferred method to produce a company’s or facility’s power and energy requirements. Our new trigeneration packages will enable savings in capital and energy costs.”
Initially, Power Partners’ trigeneration packages will be available in generating capacities from 200 kW to 2MW. The power can be generated by micro turbines, reciprocating engines or fuel cells. Each package includes:
- CHP equipment
- An ECO-MAX adsorption chiller
- Cooling tower, pumps, piping, sensors for generator & chiller, mounted on skids
Each complete trigeneration system will receive standard full load testing prior to shipment from Power Partners’ factory. Containerisation is available, and Power Partners can custom-design the trigeneration packages to meet specific customer requirements. Trigeneration is also known as combined cooling, heating and power, or CCHP.
With ECO-MAX adsorption chillers, there are no crystallization problems, no corrosion, no chemical testing and no hazardous leaks. Water is adsorbed onto a bed of silica gel and regenerated under low pressure to produce chilled water. ECO-MAX adsorption chillers need no compressors, no high pressure refrigerants and no oil changes, and they create virtually no noise or vibration. Ultra-low electricity usage means low operating costs and exceptionally low carbon emissions.
