Absorption: triple efficiency

The world's first triple-effect absorption chiller-heater with a cooling COP (higher calorific value basis) of 1.6 was released in October of last year by Kawasaki Thermal Engineering. This system consists of an ordinary double-effect lithium bromide (LiBr)/H2O cycle with an added high-temperature, high-pressure generator. It provides vast improvements in energy efficiency: 30% reduction in energy used for space cooling and processes compared with other double-effect units available on the market.
