Two thermeco2 heat pumps (type HHR 130) ensure smooth-running processes at ALBA Recycling GmbH in Eisenhüttenstadt.
The ALBA Group employs around 7,500 people, and is active in Germany, Europe and Asia with its ALBA and Interseroh brands. In 2015 the company achieved a turnover of around 2.2 billion euros. This means that the ALBA Group is a leading provider of recycling and environmental services and a leading supplier of raw materials around the world. In 2015 alone, the recycling activities of the ALBA Group saved almost 5.9 million tons of greenhouse gases when compared to primary production, and around 51.8 million tons of primary raw materials.
Before plastic packaging can be turned into granulate in an extruder, it first needs to be crushed (into flakes), washed and then dried again. The two thermeco2 heat pumps are deployed in the thermal drying production step, and their advantages come into full play. They heat hot water with a capacity of 100 kW each and thereby heat the outside air used to dry the flakes. The heat pump obtains its source from the machine cooling for the extruder, so it also generates a cooling capacity of approx. 160 kW at the same time. This relieves the existing refrigeration systems used to cool the extruder.
Compact design meets efficient refrigeration for Gulf News in Dubai. Each container could independently produce refrigeration. The refrigeration is then fed into a refrigeration network and ensures that each container is redundant.
The manufacturer has invested in the performance and future of epoxy resin production through ENGIE Refrigeration. ENGIE Refrigeration supervises the complete construction project from design to commissioning. This customer has placed its fourth order with ENGIE Refrigeration.
Combined heat and cold generation in the high-temperature heat pump generates thermal heat of 40/80 °C in parallel to the new large boilers and uses the waste heat directly from the chilled water network for climate application to do so.
Optimal energy efficiency for hospitals: The heat pump will guarantee the combined generation of cold and heat in parallel to the two new large boilers, generate thermal heat for heating drinking water.
The CO2 high-temperature heat pump from ENGIE Refrigeration was chosen because it can supply the required network temperatures, retain a reserve for supply temperatures up to 90 °C, and can also be operated in parallel to a district heat supply.
An entirely new building was erected in Heroldsberg. The heat pump is located in the heating system in the cellar. The main task of the heat pump is to activate the probe array, as server cooling is to a large extent covered by free cooling.
With a new chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration, Fraenkische Rohrwerke was able to halve the energy costs for the chilled water generation although the old chiller already included an energy saving circuit with dry coolers.
Alongside mounting and welding work, Paul Bippus GmbH also produces precision turned parts for breaking and steering systems, emission control systems and diesel fuel injection systems from materials which are difficult to cut. Due to ever-increasing demand for precision turned parts, this supplier to the automobile industry decided to build a new production site in Oberndorf in 2004. In this case, the technology for cooling the production processes proved to be a particular challenge for Bippus.
