Chocolate Facility Cuts Costs with Waste Heat Recovery

Using heat pumps to capture waste heat from industrial processes has emerged as an increasingly popular way to increase energy efficiency. At the same time, this process reduces the environmental impact of refrigeration systems.

Emerson Climate Technologies recently worked with a chocolate production facility to reduce its total energy demand using a new heat pump system featuring Vilter single screw compressors. By implementing the new system, the chocolate factory cut costs by $394,000 per year. Additionally, the facility achieved waste heat recovery of 1130 kW contributing to a 15% higher efficiency than comparable technologies.
