Efficient heat recovery from industrial processes using heat pump
MetadataShow full item record
The main aim of this thesis is to show the possibilities that heat pumps hold within the industrial sectors in high-temperature applications, easing their inclusion within this field.The developed case of study is a highly efficient heat recovery system for industrial applications using HP technology. This system is to be inserted into the Kyknos transformation implant, located in Savalia, Greece, a factory that uses fresh vegetables to produce all kinds of canned tomato products. It will estimate its performances, especially the reduction of primary energy consumption, within a broader analysis of the pollutants released and of its economic efficiency, by drawing a comparison with the same situation if the recovery system had not been used.
