The need

Process heat has a significant cost due to legislation and soaring gas prices. Few sustainable solutions are available in the 100-200°C range. There is an urgent need for heat pumps that remain efficient up to150°C, are cost-effective, reliable and do not use fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases).

The solution

Ecop has developed a new heat pump that is extremely cost-effective and energy efficient. The same appliance has a broad area of application, from -20 °C to 150 °C. It requires no lubrication and all parts are low maintenance, as they are rotating, standard and industrial. The Ecop rotation heat pump can be used simultaneously in one machine to generate heat and cold, and also serves as a flywheel accumulator. No F-gases or flammable refrigerants are used.

The value proposition

  • Capable of attaining 100-150 °C efficiently over the whole temperature range, with long-term stability.
  • No lubrication needed.
  • High energy efficiency when used with significant temperature differences between the inlet and outlet in the heat exchangers, from 15 °C to 40°C.
  • Practically no risk to the environment in contrast to other technologies (toxic and poisonous working media etc.).
