    • 500°F Absorption Heat Pump Under Development 

      Davidson, W. F.; Erickson, D. C. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      Economic industrial heat pumping to temperatures above 500°F (260°C) is promised in the near future. A new absorption fluid is the key. Tested under DOE sponsorship, the new fluid has proven to be thermally stable and ...
    • Absorption Cycle Fundamentals and Applications Guidelines for Distillation Energy Savings 

      Erickson, D. C.; Davidson, W. F. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      The absorption cycle offers one of the most economic and widely applicable technologies for waste heat upgrading. It can use off-the-shelf hardware that is available now, at any required capacity rating. Fractional ...
    • Absorptive Recycle of Distillation Waste Heat 

      Erickson, D. C.; Lutz, E. J., Jr. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      When the heat source available to a distillation process is at a significantly higher temperature than the reboiler temperature, there is unused availability (ability to perform work) in the heat supplied to the reboiler. ...
    • Economic Options for Upgrading Waste Heat 

      Erickson, D. C. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      There are at least six major types of equipment that upgrade waste heat: (1) thermocompressor; (2) electric drive compressor heat pump; (3) absorption heat pump; (4) high temperature heat powered compressor heat pump; ...
    • Intermediate Vapor Expansion Distillation and Nested Enrichment Cascade Distillation 

      Erickson, D. C. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      Although it is known that incorporating an intermediate reboiler or reflux condenser in a distillation column will improve column efficiency by 15 to 100%, there has been little use of this technique to date." ...
    • Moltox™ Chemical Air Separation System-A Progress Report 

      Erickson, D. C.; Brown, W. R.; Dunbobbin, B. R.; Massey, R. G. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      A new low energy route to tonnage oxygen production, the MOLTOX™ system, is now commencing pilot plant testing. The process, its history, and potential applications will be described, in addition to recent results of ...
    • Present and Future Uses of Industrial Absorption Heat Pumps 

      Erickson, D. C.; Davidson, W. F. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      This paper examines the present and projects the future uses of industrial absorption heat pumping. AHP technology is seen as an increasingly important component of plant and process heat integration for energy conservation. ...
