Novel lubricant for high temperature heat pump applications on its way

Fuchs Schmierstoffe: development of a lubricant for high temperature heat pumps with refrigerant OpteonMZ in the DryFiciency project

Fuchs Schmierstoffe develops unique synthetic lubricant for high temperature heat pumps which is chemically stable when used withOpteonMZ (HFO-1336mzz-Z), a novel, non-flammable and non-toxic new refrigerant from Chemours that is not subject to the F-gas regulation. The lubricant is used for two compressor technologies, an adapted screw compressor by Bitzer and a new piston compressor technology by Viking Heat Engines.

Event invitation: Breakfast debate at the European Parliament

9 April 2019, Members Salon, European Parliament (Brussels)

Integration of renewable energy in the residential and commercial sectors is already feasible with existing technologies. Decarbonising the transport and industrial sectors is a much more difficult challenge.
This breakfast event will focus on the largely overlooked opportunities that high capacity and high-temperature heat pumps can provide to production processes in many applications. DryFiciency, as a project focusing on high- temperature heat pumps for industrial processes will also be presented.

Compressor delivery paves way for first heat pump demos

Compressor delivery paves way for first heat pump demos

Industries to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels with unique compressor technologies

Compressors from Viking Heat Engines and Bitzer – specially engineered to reach up to 160 °C – have been delivered to an experienced Austrian heat pump manufacturer and work is underway to build the first industrial, high-temperature heat pump systems to be installed at DryFiciency’s demo partner sites.
