Heat exchangers for renewable energy applications
environmentally-friendly & cost-effective alternatives
Technology suited to every purpose.
With heating and cooling capacities higher than the amount of electricity required to operate them, heat pumps are an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems. Heat pumps use thermal energy from air or diverse soil levels to heat buildings. The energy is transferred, via different heat exchangers in a refrigerant cycle, to a temperature level which is used to condition rooms. During the summer the cycle can be reversed to pump cool air. It is estimated that, by 2020, heat pumps could reduce primary energy consumption by 20-25% through partial replacement of traditional gas or other fuel heating systems.¹ Most geothermal power plants also use geothermal water to supply heat to district heating networks. Next to solar power plants, solar thermal energy is widely used to heat potable water in residential properties or to support their heating systems. With geothermal water, special attention must be given to selecting suitable materials that can withstand temperature and pressure and take account of the quality of the water and any salt or hydrocarbons it may contain. At Kelvion we understand the importance of providing solutions that are individually designed to suit the specific purpose. As well as a competitive price and fast delivery, we promise technology that is efficient, robust and cost-effective.
