Introduction of heat pumps in industrial processes
Other conference contribution, 1988

By using pinch technology, which is a methodology of analyzing industrial processes in a thermodynamically correct way, criteria have been established how to choose the correct heat pump type depending on the characteristics of the specific process stream system. Furthermore, an economic optimization of the compression heat pump type has been performed in two different process systems under various economic conditions. From these two examples the conclusion to be drawn is that the potential for heat pumping in industry looks promising.
