absorption technology briefly

 Home  energy sources  how it works  history 


absorption units are mainly used for refrigeration or cooling applications. Unlike compressor type cooling units, they do not need electricity for operation but run on thermal energy such as a gas flame.

Units with auxilary inert gas are called diffusions-absorption units. They operate totally independed from electricity. They are maintenance-free, noiseless and have a very long lifetime due to lack of mechanical wear.

ENTEX utilized diffusion-absorption units only from 20 Watt cooling performance 2up to approc 10 kW heating performance.
