|dc.description.abstract||Use of Turbo Compressor/ Expanders (TCEs) as industrial reversed Brayton Cycle Heat Pumps offers many technical and energy saving advantages. Until recently, such devices have been far too expensive in both capital cost and inefficiency mainly because the compressor and expander stages were built for forward Brayton Cycle operation in unmatched compressor/expander efficiencies. A few years ago, NUCON initiated a program to locate sources of TCEs and to engineer cost effective modifications to these standard TCEs for use in reverse Brayton Cycle condensation based pollution control and solvent recovery, material recycle applications. The NUCON program is continuing to further improve the matched compressor/expander efficiency, the availability and cost effectiveness of these uses. This program has resulted in major advances in availability and significant improvements in efficiency.||en|
