GEA chiller indicate a focus on the development and manufacture of cooling systems. Our specialists, however, are also well qualified and experienced in work with heat pumps. In fact: heat pumps and refrigeration systems operate on the same physical principles, and key components in both systems include such elements as compressors and heat exchangers. They are the heart and, literally, the pump of the heat pump: GEA piston and screw compressors. These compressors are especially designed for the great final compression pressure in a heat pump. They offer condensation temperatures that are effective not only for operation of the low-temperature heating system, but also for the supply of process heat.

Chillers

Chillers

GEA offers an extensive product portfolio of ammonia chillers for virtually any application for industrial refrigeration and air conditioning. Both as turnkey units with compact footprints – such as the models in the GEA Blu chiller range – as well as tailored solutions in modular design, our chillers are characterized by great reliability and optimal energy efficiency. They are available as piston compressor and as screw compressor units, and they are designed for indoor and outdoor installation. Our chillers can be used both for cooling as well as heat pumps. For example, our machines are used for freezing food products, process cooling in the chemical industry, air conditioning in office complexes, heating greenhouses and hot water.

Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps

In industry and commerce, the requirements for heating and process heat are highly specific. Heat pumps can very often satisfy these needs. Thanks to their efficiency and short amortization period, they represent an environmentally friendly and economically attractive alternative to conventional heating systems. A heat pump raises heat from its surroundings – water, or waste process heat – from a lower temperature level to a higher.

A crucial factor in the planning and selection of a heat pump system is the type of intended application. The diversity of the industrial heat pump makes it attractive for many applications where both heating and cooling are required.

If requirements change from heating to cooling in accordance with the seasons – as is typically the case in office buildings and greenhouses – a GEA heat pump can provide the heating in winter and cooling in the summer. In the seasons where both heating and cooling are required the efficiency can be more than 10 times better than a conventional boiler/chiller installation. 

Whatever application may interest your company for a heat pump, it will – when its overall life cycle is considered – amortize quickly by a reduction in energy consumption and emissions that affect the global climate. In addition, emphasis is placed on using natural refrigerants such as ammonia wherever possible.
