Absorption chillers are used in commercial buildings and industrial plants to provide air conditioning, refrigeration, and process fluid cooling. They are often exhaust fired using thermal energy recovered fromcombined heat and power (CHP) prime movers (e.g., reciprocating engines, microturbines, and combustion turbines). They are a different type of chiller which actually uses heat to generate cooling. Click here to learn more about how absorption chillers work.
If your company’s cooling systems are running often (or for a large part of the year), an absorption chiller could help to significantly lower the cost of that cooling. Industries with significant year-round space conditioning loads include hospitals, hotels, large commercial office buildings, and college campuses. Sites like manufacturing plants with process cooling needs, cold storage warehouses, and data centers which require steady year-round cooling may also benefit from having an absorption chiller installed.
EnergyLink’s experienced engineers will analyze your facility to understand and calculate the best absorption chiller implementation. The new chiller system will be set up to work in perfect harmony with your current energy systems, allowing for the even more energy efficiency and energy savings.
