For the 3rd consecutive year, ATMOsphere America has the support of U.S. compressor manufacturer, EcoThermics Corporation. The company has been producing energy-efficient compressors for CO2 since 2007.
The organizers are proud to announce EcoThermics as a Bronze Sponsor of ATMOsphere America 2014.
EcoThermics Corporation designs next-generation CO2 compressors for heat pumps. The company works together with a selection of strategic Partners committed to testing, prototyping and production through advanced engineering modeling and analysis.
About the technology
EcoThermics technology applies high-pressure axial piston hydraulic pump technology to compressors for transcritical CO2 heat pumps up to 2000 psi, a pressure roughly 5 times greater than traditional heat pumps.
In commercial applications, heat pumps can provide cheaper water heating than gas heating; furthermore, by utilizing a CO2 heat pump important requirements can be met such as: increased hot water production, as well as the need for air conditioning and dehumidification in food production and packaging areas. The technology provides energy savings without contributing to adverse affects on the environment.
Initially, EcoThermics focused on applications for commercial water heating and cooling. Today, the company’s 30hp semi-hermetic compressor is now in development for large dedicated heat-recovery systems as well.
As one of the North American pioneers in the development of natural refrigerant technologies, EcoThermics provides CO2 semi-hermetic compressors primarily for heat pumps. At the root of the company is the objective to produce single-stage, semi-hermetic compressors which can be easily installed, and are durable, reliable and easily serviceable for heat-pump manufacturers, distributors and end-users.
