Waste heat recovery for absorption refrigeration.

Author(s) : DORGAN C. B., DORGAN C. E.


The waste heat available from many processes, cogeneration and central power/heat plants offers an economic resource for driving absorption refrigeration machines. This includes both refrigeration for air-conditioning and low temperature refrigeration.
