A global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, introduced a new range of York absorption chillers (YHAU) and heat pumps (YHAP), with the most diverse, modern and flexible offering to the European market.
These units can use a variety of driving heat resources like hot water, steam, gas, light oil or exhaust gas. Both the YHAU chillers and YHAP heat pumps use water as refrigerant, which results in zero ozone depletion, and makes these units highly sustainable and efficient.
Common applications include industrial processes; combined heat and power (CHP); commercial buildings; turbine inlet air cooling and district energy systems.
