Technical experts from Vilter Manufacturing LLC, a business of Emerson Climate Technologies, will be heading out to Colorado Springs this week to present the latest information about next generation ammonia heat pumps. Vilter will also sponsor a Regulatory and Code Update Lunch during the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration’s (IIAR) 2013 Industrial Refrigeration Conference and Exhibition. The technical presenters from Vilter will be available before and after each presentation in booths #518-522.
Globally, the food and beverage industry’s need for energy efficiency and water savings is growing. More than 90percent of the energy consumed for refrigeration is wasted as heat rejected into the atmosphere. However, industrial heat pumps can capture that wasted heat and significantly lower a plant’s energy and water consumption. Installing heat pumps to capture waste heat from industrial processes is increasingly popular in Europe, largely because the heat they deliver far exceeds the energy they consume, greatly reducing the reliance on fossil fuels. Attendees will discover how the design and operation of food and beverage processing plants of the future will be adapted to capitalize on the benefits of industrial heat pumps.
The IIAR conference is an exceptional educational and networking forum for the industrial refrigeration industry. We are honored to share our experiences and the knowledge we’ve acquired with our peers. More information about IIAR can be found at www.iiar.org
Have you attended IIAR in the past? If so, we would be interested in knowing your thoughts about IIAR in general, and heat pump technology in particular, especially as it relates to utilizing ammonia as the primary refrigerant.
