ITT Industries Announces Partnership

MORTON GROVE, IL — ITT Industries’ Fluid Handling Division has formed a partnership with Ambian® Climate Technologies, LLC. The Fluid Handling Division will become the exclusive manufacturer of advanced technology ammonia-water absorption hardware for Ambian’s alternative fuel, heat-activated cooling and heating products. Ambian expects to commercially introduce the products in the United States and Canada in 2003.

The products will include air conditioners, heat pumps, hydronic chillers, chiller-heaters, and heat pump-heaters for the residential and commercial markets. “These products are environmentally friendly, halocarbon-free, and in many applications will provide a 40% to 50% improvement in operating efficiency,” said Pasquale (Pat) DePalma, president of ITT’s Fluid Handling Division.

Joel Anderson, operating partner of Ambian Climate Technologies, noted that fuel diversification in today’s environment of overloaded electric grids during summer months offers significant benefits to the country at large. “Not only are we providing residential and commercial users with the fuel choice of natural gas and propane for cooling and heating loads, we also have the ability to gainfully employ exhaust heat from on-site generation equipment such as microturbines, engines, and most fuel cells,” said Anderson.
