Heat Recovery From Refrigeration Plant

Thomas Foods International (TFI) have installed Australia’s first Ammonia Heat Pump (AHP) that turns waste heat rejected from refrigeration plant into 75°C water to offset boiler use. The project was undertaken at TFI’s Lobethal Abattoir in South Australia.

Recent years have seen significant increases in energy costs at TFI and it was prudent that opportunities to improve efficiency be considered.
