Industrial Heat pumps February 9, 2007

Industrial heat pumps, using waste process heat as the heat source, deliver heat at higher temperature for use in industrial process heating or preheating, or for space heating in industry. There is a debate over their definition, but in general they represent a worthwhile method of improving the energy efficiency of industrial processes, and/or reducing primary energy consumption.

Industrial heat pumps (IHPs) offer various opportunities to all types of manufacturing processes and operations. Increased energy efficiency is certainly the IHPs most prominent benefit, but few companies have realized the untapped potential of IHPs in solving production and environmental problems. IHPs can offer the least-cost option in getting the bottlenecks out of production process to allow greater product throughput. In fact, IHPs may be an industrial facility’s best way of significantly and cost-effectively reducing combustion-related emissions.
