Heat pumps

In industry and commerce, the requirements for heating and process heat are highly specific. Heat pumps can very often satisfy these needs. Thanks to their efficiency and short amortization period, they represent an environmentally friendly and economically attractive alternative to conventional heating systems. A heat pump raises heat from its surroundings – water, or waste process heat – from a lower temperature level to a higher. A crucial factor in the planning and selection of a heat pump system is the type of intended application. The diversity of the industrial heat pump makes it attractive for many applications where both heating and cooling are required.

If requirements change from heating to cooling in accordance with the seasons – as is typically the case in office buildings and greenhouses – a GEA heat pump can provide the heating in winter and cooling in the summer. In the seasons where both heating and cooling are required the efficiency can be more than 10 times better than a conventional boiler/chiller installation. 

Whatever application may interest your company for a heat pump, it will – when its overall life cycle is considered – amortize quickly by a reduction in energy consumption and emissions that affect the global climate. In addition, emphasis is placed on using natural refrigerants such as ammonia wherever possible.

GEA heat pumps turn redundant Gateshead mine water into clean energy

GEA is dedicated to tackling climate change and helping decarbonize district heating projects like this one in the Northeast of England. Our heat pumps are at the center of the Gateshead Mine Water Scheme, the largest mine water heat recovery scheme of its kind in the country.

Customer case

E.ON turns sewage into a valuable resource with GEA heat pump technology

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the heating supplied to a city in Malmö in Sweden required a sea change in thinking by a major power company, using GEA’s energy-efficient heat pumps. After testing the water, a sewage plant was considered the best source for heating homes in an innovative approach for turning waste into usable energy.
