Thermal energy recovery of air conditioning system––heat recovery system calculation and phase change materials development

0 Comment

Latent heat thermal energy storage systems can be used to recover the rejected heat from air conditioning systems, which can be used to generate low-temperature hot water.

It decreases not only the consumption of primary energy for heating domestic hot water but also the calefaction to the surroundings due to the rejection of heat from air conditioning systems.

A recovery system using phase change materials (PCMs) to store the rejected (sensible and condensation) heat from air conditioning system has been developed and studied, making up the shortage of other sensible heat storage system.

Also, PCMs compliant for heat recovery of air conditioning system is now developed by our engineers. Technical grade paraffin wax has been used in order to develop a paraffin wax based PCM for the recovery of rejected heat from air conditioning systems.
