Absorption Systems

Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Aztech Geothermal

The session will provide an introduction to absorption refrigeration for commercial and industrial applications.  The basics of the absorption cycle, comparisons to other technologies and sample projects will be presented.

A tour of Aztech’s facility will follow the presentation.  The 24,000 SF building was constructed in 2006 with a standing column geothermal system and electric water source heat pumps. In 2011 a natural gas fired absorption heat pump was added to the system and heats the radiant floor in the shop.
