New generation of compact multifunctional exchangers for low-cost absorption machines.
Today's society faces many challenges such as pollution, global warming, an increasing energy demand and the depletion of fossil resources. Confther aims to adress some of these challenges by offering low-cost absorption machines with a new generation of multifunctional exchangers. This technology allows to produce cold from renewable heat sources with very low electricity consumption, fulfilling the need for thermal comfort in a sustainable way.
The machine architecture was defined on the basis of stationary and dynamic simulations. These simulations made it possible to define the necessary thermal and mass efficiencies of the various components. The current step is to optimize the components in order to implement them on a demonstrator
