Flareum offers Solar Cooling to Siemens
New Delhi, September 27, 2012: Flareum Technologies, leaders in solar thermal technology, announced its vibrant green solution offering for Siemens Technologies.
Siemens Technologies, one of the biggest technology firms having offices all over India, wanted to find a green solution that would have integrated their CSR activities with the routine. Flareum Technologies provided them with vibrant solution of air conditioning that would work completely on solar power, making their building a green building and reducing the carbon footprint. Flareum technologies has installed a 10 TR solar air-conditioning system using VAM (vapor absorption mechanism) technology to cool the Siemens office in Bangalore, that works for 8 hrs a day producing 200 kWh cooling. The savings from this system for Siemens is around INR 650,000/- annually and reduce 30,000 ton of carbon emissions annually, with a payback period of 4 to 5 years.
“It is our pleasure to offer solutions to Siemens Technologies. We comprehend the use of green technology and are elated to have provided them with vibrant cooling solution which enables them to work completely on solar power, making their building a green building and reducing the carbon footprint,” said Mr. Badal Shah, CMD, Flareum Technologies.
The system works on vapor absorption technology in contrast to the vapor compression systems that normal air conditioners use.
Vapor absorption system differs from the compression system in a way that it uses heat energy instead of mechanical energy to make a change in the conditions necessary to complete the refrigeration cycle. The heat energy for this purpose is supplied from Solar Parabolic dishes. The working of an absorption machine depends upon the use of two substances (refrigerant + Absorbent) which have great affinity for each other and which can be easily separated by the application of heat. If the compressor in a vapor compression system were replaced with a generator is absorber assembly the result would be a simple absorption system.
In this case the low pressure refrigerant vapor coming from the evaporator is absorbed in the absorber by the weak solution. Of refrigerant water, absorption of ammonia lower the pressure in the absorber, which in turn draws more ammonia vapor from the evaporator some form of cooling arrangement usually water cooling, is employed in the absorber to remove the heat of solution evolved there. In the generator the strong solution of ammonia is heated by solar parabolic dish such as hot water or steam, in the heating process the ammonia vapor driven out of the solution as a high pressure vapor leaving behind in the generator a weak solution. The weak solution flows back to the absorber through a restriction which maintains the pressure differential between the high and low sides of the system. From the generator the refrigerant vapor is conducted to the condenser where it is condensed. Then the high pressure liquid ammonia is passed through a throttle valve to the evaporator where it absorbs its latent heat thus procuring cold.
