German electroplating company implements tri-generation comfort system
November 23, 2015
Companies with energy-intensive electroplating and surface finishing processes not only have high levels of energy consumption, but they also need vast quantities of process heat and cooling for production. Combined heat and power (CHP) units with thermally driven cooling systems are particularly effective in these instances.
Cogeneration turns an otherwise lost energy source into efficient heating and cooling
November 9, 2015
Four microturbines will include an integrated hot water cogeneration module to allow for a simple mechanical connection to multiple-facility hot water systems, as well as absorption chilling, reducing equipment footprint and facilitating quiet, safe, and reliable operations for combined heat and power (CHP).
Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source, such as: natural gas, biomass, biogas, coal, waste heat, or oil. CHP is not a single technology, but an integrated energy system that can be modified depending upon the needs of the end user.
