The LC150 research project of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) set itself the task of researching a standardized and refrigerant-reduced refrigeration circuit with propane together with heat pump manufacturers and suppliers. During the project, the researchers and a consortium of heat pump manufacturers developed a refrigerant-reduced propane heat pump. Kelvion’s GK108H brazed plate heat exchanger was part of a test series.
Kelvion’s GK108H was used in heat pump pilot plants that performed very well in the tests and was also part of the two final best-of refrigeration circuits.
The GK108H is part of the ConBraze series and features a new plate design, low fill volume, high efficiency and thermal performance.
