Pompes à chaleur dans les applications de nettoyage industriel.

Heat pumps in industrial cleaning applications.

Numéro : pap. ID: 881



The overall objective of the project is to promote the use of heat pumps in energy-intensive industrial washing applications. Actual measurements carried out at a production facility on washing plants for metal items show that heat pumps have an energy savings potential of app. 40-50%. The washing plants typically have an annual energy consumption of 80 MWh, and the contribution to the overall energy consumption of the production facilities is considerable. Throughout the project, a heat pump solution will be developed and commissioned for a specific washing application at a production facility in Denmark. To promote the use in similar applications, the total potential at the production facility is mapped and a software tool will be developed. The software tool will provide energy consultants, manufacturers and end-users with a quick assessment of possible heat pump solutions in different washing applications. The project was initiated by a medium-sized company and funded by the Danish Energy Association. The medium-sized company develops and commissions industrial washing applications. Mapping has shown that heat pumps can minimize the total power consumption by 50%, enabling large reductions of consumed energy and short payback periods.
