Sorption chillers (cooling machines) are simply driven by heat instead of electrical power. Potential sources of heat are therefore the sun or waste heat from other technical processes.
Since the 90' the development of the solar-assisted technology has been promoted, especially for small cooling capacities.
Due to relevant first-hand expertise in research & development ACE is able to take over development tasks concerning the development of absorption chillers, both with lithium bromide and ammonia working fluids. The range of activities reaches from the basic thermodynamic research, up to the pre-commercial product development.
