Raising the bar for heat pumps up to 95°C

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The RedGenium heat pump, combined with the new Grasso V XHP reciprocating compressor (photo), enables the provision of temperatures of 95°C with high efficiency. In addition to the temperature advantage, the largest V XHP compressor also offers almost double the capacity compared to previous models. The new system is well-suited for many processes with high heat-load requirements. Electrically driven heat pumps can replace conventional fossil-fuel-based heating systems. They use either available process waste heat or other heat sources from the environment and transfer the heat to a high temperature level. — GEA Group AG, Düsseldorf, Germany
