The development of a hydrocarbon high temperature heat pump for waste heat recovery
Waste heat is an abundant resource that if recovered with a heat pump would increase energy efficiency in industrial processes. This will provide improvements in heat utilization and reduce the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions from the combustion of fossil fuel. A hydrocarbon high te...
Experimental investigation of a prototype R-600 compressor for high temperature heat pump
This research experimentally investigates a prototype compressor in a high temperature heat pump for industrial waste heat recovery from 50 °C to heat delivery at 115 °C. Compressors are the limiting component in the development of high temperature heat pumps due to the high discharge pres...
Performance of a high-temperature heat pump using butane as refrigerant
Evaluation of ejector performance in a butane high-temperature heat pump
The deliverable summarizes the measurement results of the prototype compressor for butane conducted with the improved R290/R600 high temperature heat pump setup....
Experimental Investigation of a Hydrocarbon Piston Compressor for High Temperature Heat Pumps
Thermal upgrading by high temperature heat pumps at Kårstø
Theoretical analysis of suitable fluids for high temperature heat pumps up to 125 °C heat delivery
Industrial processes with applications such as pasteurization, drying and distillation have heat demand at a temperature between 100–125 °C. Industries with large amounts of waste heat and cooling demand will benefit from the development of high temperature heat pumps (HTHPs) which can replace ...
