bromuro de litio

http://www.coldway.fr/ CONT EXT For more than ten years, the two founder s of Coldwa ythermo engine ers originat ing for the Nation al Resear ch Laborat ory (CNRS ) Laurent RIGAU D and Francis KINDB EITER have develo ped speciali zed knowhow of this industri al proces s called thermo chemic al

system . They bring new aspect s to the system of solidgas absorpt ion and supply an alternat ive and differen t approa ch of cooling and/or heating in order to satisfy a growin g need of mobility , quality, traceab ility and reliabilit y for the health and food industr y and logistic s. Among st the absorpt ion cycles, the solidgas system s are

particul arly interest ing not only for their heat manag ement and cooling product ion possibil ities, but also for their autono my. Based on the heat transfer of reversi ble chemic al reactio ns, of the chlorid e ammon iac type, these proces ses meet with concer ns linked to environ ment protecti on, whethe r it is about the protecti

on of the ozone layer or the control of the greenh ouse effect: they do not use any CFC or HCFC fluids or any other substit ute banned by internat ional agreem ents. THE THE RM OCH EMI CAL SYS TEM
