UK supermarket cuts carbon footprint through innovative technology
Supermarket chain Sainsbury has managed to heavily reduce the carbon footprint of a heating and cooling installation at its 9,300 square meter supermarket in Crayford, Kent, in the UK. This has been done by using innovative technologies combined with an intelligent energy management system.
Shining a light on tomatoes
A single J624 from GE Energy with an output of 4 MW can cover the power needs of about 9,000 European households. Moreover, this flagship is helping to shine a light on Dutch tomatoes consumed all over Europe. SWEP's B427 is an integral part of this impressive unit.
Modern solar collectors are more efficient than ever. Furthermore, the possibility of using absorptive surfaces in colors other than black has helped architects to identify new creative opportunities for solar collectors.
Tap water with extreme hardness
Ringsjön is a lake in southern Sweden from which tap water is drawn. The very hard water (dH 11) imposes severe stress on the equipment used. After 4-6 years' operation, four SWEP heat exchangers used for heating the tap water were brought to SWEP’s laboratory for testing.
Rank® Organic Rankine Cycle technology with applications in heat recovery solution
In a project involving ACCIONA and KEROS CERAMICA, RANK® has worked with SWEP to implement a heat recovery solution for electricity power generation.
Pure water cooling systems
In some applications, such as cooling of power electronics, ions are not desirable. Ions in the water may lead to short-circuit, or spark over in the electronic equipment.
Outokumpu cools machine shop using natural elements
Outokumpu – a world-leading company in custom-made products in coarse, special stainless steel (quarto) – has invested heavily in its rolling mill in Degerfors, Sweden. Cooling the machine shop to enable it to provide the best service to the rolling mill is of crucial importance.
Clean power when ORC system recovers waste heat
An affordable and sustainable supply of energy is the key to modern society as well as global economy.
High capacity industrial chillers no challenge for SWEP BHPEs
Industrial chillers come in a variety of sizes and models. Traditionally, shell & tube heat exchangers have been used for high capacity chillers, but SWEP BHPEs are changing that picture. Powerful yet small, they fit perfectly into most industrial applications.
Efficiently heating a national building in Beijing, China
The national building, which is one of the largest hall structures in the world , needed a reliable and efficient solution for space heating and hot tap water.
BPHEs in district heating systems
The city of Hoyerswerda, in eastern Germany, decided to modernize the city's district heating system.
Geothermal stack of BPHEs
Geothermal energy storage is a new energy-saving application with promising future growth potential. Reduced fossil fuel burning and a 95% reduction of CO2 emissions are clear advantages of this system.
