Demonstration unit at SINTEF lab:
The demonstration unit utilizes steam up to 1 ton per hour which results in a capacity of up to 750 kW. The turbo-compressors by Rotrex are oil-free and therefore without lubrication. The successful demo case aims at reducing the dryer’s energy demand by up to 75% and at eliminating the need of the drying system to depend on fossil fuels. Water is a natural refrigerant, which is non-toxic, environmentally-safe, reliable and has no global warming potential. It will not be subject to future regulations.
More information coming soon.
