Project Summary

Food processing facilities often have concurrent needs for chilling and heating water, operations that are generally provided by natural gas fired boilers and electric driven chillers. This study examines ThermoSorbersTM, combined chiller-heat pumps that provide simultaneous chilled and hot water and that can generate significant savings: up to 40% of the gas and 90% of the electricity of conventional systems. This test involves a 100-ton system at a food processing facility in California\'s central valley. For more information, please contact the sponsoring organization.
