  • Storage
  • Energy efficiency

Project Description:
The company decided to invest in a heat exchanger to utilize waste heat of the shock freezer. In total 7,366 kWh/year of waste heat a 38 °C are available. The heat is stored in an existing 500 l hot water storage which is currently loaded with a gas burner. The storage supplies several processes with 60 °C hot water. In total the heat demand is 6,536 kWh/year. Due to temperature limitations only 3,660 kWh/year of waste heat can actually be used.
