Heat Pumps

Recovering Waste Heat: An Asset for Your Business Heat Pump Principle

Heat pumps extract energy from a cold stream, increase its temperature, and release this energy to a hot stream. The heat pump operates based on a carrier fluid (refrigerant) that changes state (liquid/gas) in a continuous cycle and absorbs and releases heat (Carnot cycle).

We build tunnel kilns and integrate roller and shuttle kilns.  

Thanks to our experience and know-how, we can also refurbish kilns, standardize equipment, increase efficiency, reduce energy costs and improve product quality. 

We perform firing tests in our mobile lab. 
Use of solid fuels is possible with our Solid Fuel Firing System.
