So that you always keep a cool head
Our summers are getting hotter and hotter, and ensuring a comfortable indoor climate is just as important for office spaces as for production halls, hotels, or cinemas. Adsorption cooling systems from FAHRENHEIT generate the optimal temperature from waste heat. The heat can also be generated by cogeneration plants, from solar heat from the sun, or it can be directly obtained from production processes.
Our cooling systems help reduce your carbon footprint in many ways: They save up to 80% in electricity, they don’t use any artificial coolants and they work just with water.
Cooling—the smart way
Our chillers help your CO2 balance in two ways: They save up to 80% of electricity, and they do not require synthetic refrigerants—because they work with pure water.
SOLAR POWERED COOLING: ANTONIYKA SCHOOL, UKRAINE
Advanced cooling for model school in Ukraine.
The showcase project was co-organized with Sovasolar Ltd. developed, planned and successfully implemented with three eCoo 2.0 adsorption chillers. The entire school was prefabricated in Finland and delivered to Ukraine by Elemento Oy.
Outside the cooling period, a solar system generates energy for water heating and space heating, while the three modules of the adsorption chiller cool the building via modern recirculation units in the hot summer. The FAHRENHEIT adsorption chillers are powered by the solar system.
DEUTSCHES PATENTAMT MÜNCHEN
Solar cooling: German Patent Office Munich
Future-oriented adsorption technology for the German Patent Office Munich. In 2011, a geothermal system coupled with solar energy generation was technically and optically integrated into the monument-protected building in flat roof construction during the remedial and energetic refurbishment of the DPMA in Munich.
FAHRENHEIT has been entrusted with using solar heat through four highly efficient and energy-efficient adsorption systems for building cooling during the summer months. Thanks to the combined use of geothermal energy and solar energy, 60% of the energy demand in the main building of the DPMA in Munich will be covered by renewable energy.
BUILDING COOLING WITH GEOTHERMAL ENERGY: GEOVOL UNTERFÖHRING GMBH
The Bavarian geothermal plant operator Geovol decided in 2014 to install a FAHRENHEIT adsorption refrigeration plant, which is operated with district heating of approx. 90°C, as part of the planning of its new energy center at the Unterföhring site.
Since December 2015, four eCoo 2.0 adsorption chiller units have been cooling the offices, technical rooms and a conference room in the two energy centers all year round. In addition to the maximum cooling of the "in-house" district heating, the aim was also to further improve the energy efficiency of the already green technology. With the support of the Leipzig planning office, green-engineers, Geovol was able to achieve this with great success.
The buildings are completely and reliably supplied with sorptively generated refrigeration completely and reliably by the FAHRENHEIT generators without any conventional compression refrigeration technology.
This enables Geovol to reduce the consumption of electrical energy by approx. 31 MWh/a. According to projections, the use of adsorption refrigeration also saves 12 tonnes of CO2 per year.
DISTRICT HEATING: IEP PULLACH GEOTHERMAL ENERGY
The IEP (Innovative Energy for the Pullach GmbH) is a 100 percent subsidiary of the community Pullach in the Isar Valley. In cooperation with FAHRENHEIT, the head office of DJE Kapital AG has been realized with a highly efficient adsorption cooling system eCoo 2.0 for cooling the server room and the office space above the floor in the cold contracting process.
In addition to the perfectly calculable costs of cooling by billing per kWh without capital commitment and maintenance costs, the environmental aspects were also decisive for asset managers. The CO2-neutral heating and cooling system not only serves your own green conscience, but also shows to the outside that sustainability is important to the company in several respects. This is not always the cheapest, but overall very well the cheapest solution.
The new building and the expansion of the DJE Kapital AG headquarters are now up and running, and a new edition of the adsorption technology from FAHRENHEIT has been chosen. (Implementation 2019/2020)
Avoided CO2 emissions approx. 21.7 t
ROOM COOLING WITH SOLAR THERMAL ENERGY: FASA AG
“FASA AG is considered one of the pioneers of solar construction in Germany. With the construction of a new company headquarters in Chemnitz in 2011, with the ENERGETIKhaus® principle, an active sun office building was developed that almost exclusively (more than 90%) covers its energy requirements for heating and hot water via the sun. In 2019, the plant technology was extended by a cooling system. When cooling for the summer months, FASA AG chose FAHRENHEIT for the expert in sustainable adsorption cooling from Halle an der Saale.
For the air conditioning of the offices, the heat of the in-house solar thermal system (solar large storage tank with 110 m³ volume) was used, which delivers exactly the right temperature of 80 to 90 ° C for the operation of the adsorption refrigeration system FAHRENHEIT. Thus, the room is cooled by FAHRENHEIT's eCoo 2.0 adsorption chiller, using almost no electricity, and being CO2 neutral.“
CHP: SPARKASSE PASSAU
Sustainable energy savings with FAHRENHEIT and Sparkasse Passau.
Sparkasse Passau relies on the ecological handling of environmental and energy resources and therefore uses a combined heat and power plant plus environment-friendly cooling systems from FAHRENHEIT. The CHP provides 50kW of electrical power and 85.0kW of thermal power in a very compact CHP, just 1.7sqm of floor space, and powered by environmentally friendly gas.
In times of low-interest rates, as the responsible project manager explained, investing in energy and cost-saving technology is an even smarter investment.
A simple idea, because the power generation works with simultaneous heat dissipation and heat consumption. Good in winter, but also beneficial in summer. Then the generated heat of the CHP is converted into cold using a FAHRENHEIT adsorption chiller, driving among others the room air conditioning system via the existing ventilation.
The advantage of the new adsorption chiller is the high electrical efficiency with a cooling capacity of more than 40 kW.
This not only benefits Sparkasse Passau with a significant reduction of its electricity consumption for cooling by almost 60%, but also the climate in the city.
PROCESS COOLING WITH COMPRESSOR WASTE HEAT: GUMMIWERK KRAIBURG
The specialist for rubber stable floor coverings is a leading manufacturer that focuses on sustainable raw materials and environmentally friendly production: high-quality raw materials, especially old car tires, are optimally recycled using sophisticated manufacturing processes.
There is hardly any waste in the production of KRAIBURG rubber flooring. The process makes it possible to reintroduce scraps from tailor-made products back into the recycling cycle. Another important contribution was made in 2016, together with FAHRENHEIT: Enabling electricity savings and reducing CO2 emissions.
FAHRENHEIT's adsorption chiller is used to cool a control and server room with 72 kW waste heat from the condensate of a steam process. A highly efficient adsorption system comprised of three eCoo 2.0 units was realized, maintaining the temperature in the control room at a constant 18°C with 37 kW cooling capacity. This means that the control and server room can be cooled by adsorption cooling at almost no cost for the largest part of the year.
