Absorption Chillers

  • Customized design for vessel conditions
  • Anti-rolling & pitching construction
  • Standard designed for hot water (min. 75C) & steam (1 ÷ 3 bar(g)) as a heat source
  • Other waste heat sources available on request. (i.e exhaust gas)
  • Seawater absorber & condenser in Cu/Ni or Ti
  • Range from ~150kw to ~5,000kW
  • Electrical load up to
  • COP up to 0,8

Absorption chillers use heat to drive the refrigeration cycle, they produce chilled water while consuming just a small amount of electricity to run the pumps on the unit.
Absorption chillers generally use steam or hot water to drive the lithium bromide refrigeration cycle but can also use other heat sources.

 

Description

A special Maritime Absorption Chiller has been designed considering and resolving negative aspects
such as the refrigerant’s overflow and mixing caused by ship motions, special welding, structure strength and performance de-rating in view of the ship pitching and rolling. After careful design and research the absorption chillers were tested on a moving bed to simulate the marine conditions.
Our Maritime Absorption Chillers can be steam or hot water fired and seawater cooled with Cu/Ni or Ti absorber and condenser heat exchangers.
It can be used to replace a conventional electric chiller (heat source must be 100% of the time available) or in a hybrid version (Electric chiller as back up).
