In this example, the potential savings for water heating using an ammonia heat pump are shown. Among the criteria compared are utility cost input, water-related information, heat source, plant operation data and overall cost comparisons.
For example, consider a processing facility that needs to heat 96,000 gal/day, or about 100 gal/min, of 65°F (18°C) water to 135°F (57°C). The total amount of water heated per year is 24.9 million gallons. For a full comparison, see the full article using the link at the bottom of the page.
