EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON THE PERFORMANCE OF A HIGH TEMPERATURE WATER SOURCE HEAT-PUMP


Heat pumps are used in industrial process especially in recovering the heat of wasted water in oil industry process and the oil heating in oil field. In this paper, the research on the performance of a high temperature water source heat-pump with the heating capacity of 200 kW was carried out experimentally. The thermodynamic properties of some new refrigerants were investigated on the high temperature water source heat-pump. Based on the results, measurement error and heat pump performance were presented. The heat pump can reliably with the out let water temperature up to 85ºC. So this research indicates the high
temperature has higher coefficient of performance and well market prospect.
