With increasing CO2 emissions and fossil-fuel prices, and a broader renewables footprint in the electricity mix, industrial heat pumps will be a key factor in achieving a more sustainable heat-generation approach in the future.
Industrial heat pumps take low-grade waste heat that would be emitted into the environment and upcycles it to provide space or district heating. The process reduces the need to heat using fossil fuels, lowers CO2 emissions and uses a fraction of the electric power needed to provide heating and cooling.
Industrial heat pumps using turbocompressors can utilize waste or ambient heat sources by increasing their temperature, making them suitable for additional uses throughout your facility. Atlas Copco Gas and Process’ high-efficiency industrial heat pumps handle process heat ranges between 10-50 MW (thermal) per unit and 80-300°C.
With 100% oil-free compression, our turbocompressors are by design compatible with all commercially used refrigerants, including natural hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide.
