PROCESS COOLING USING COMPRESSOR HEAT: ERKO PRÄZISIONS- UND STEUERUNGSTECHNIK

2016

More than three quarters of the heat produced by compressed air generators can be recovered for hot water systems.

The ERKO Präzisions- und Steuerungstechnik GmbH (also “ERKO CNC”) is u.a. specializing in the production of high-precision components in CNC milling and turning technology. In order to use the thermal energy of its compressors more efficiently, in 2016 it commissioned five adsorption chiller units.

The cold produced in this way is now used for cooling tools. The company has a solution that is as economical as it is ecological – especially against the background of multi-shift operation and thus an almost constant need for compressed air and cooling.
