Waste heat recovery from refrigeration equipment offers the greatest potential, from a single action, to reduce energy costs and relieve the impact of global warming on the environment – especially in all areas of food processing and food retail!
All companies – small, medium and large, that operate refrigeration systems and consume hot water for their sanitation use or heating systems, will benefit from the availability of free hot water.
- Restaurants, canteens, Caterers
- Butchers, bakers, fishmongers and slaughterhouses
- Diary farms
- Farm shops
These companies have refrigeration systems for keeping goods fresh. Whilst at the same time, are using a large amount of hot water for general hygiene, equipment cleaning and as part of the food mixing and cooking process. All cooling systems generate waste heat, which can be used to heat this water with the help of DK heat recovery.
Too many refrigeration systems still go into operation without heat recovery – an unused opportunity to relieve the environment. After the shut down of the last nuclear power plant in Germany in 2022, the power supply will be ensured by conventional power plants, as renewable energies cannot always provide the necessary amount. An important step to reduce CO2 emissions is to save energy. This is the only way to ensure that the required energy does not have to be produced in the first place – neither by nuclear power plants, conventional power plants nor renewable energy sources.
DK is recognised as the supplier with the largest product range of heat recovery solutions in Europe, and we are confident that we have a solution for every application from the family butcher’s shop on the High Street to the largest food processing factory on the planet.
