ReVap cuts CO2 production costs by 30%
ReVap is an innovative heat exchange system that minimizes both CO2 evaporation and glycol refrigeration expenses.
Evaporating CO2 for consumption has always been an unavoidable expense in breweries (and many other CO2 consuming industries). The same applies to refrigerating glycol. However, by combining these two processes, ReVap reduces the energy costs associated with both.
Re-using existing resources with great effect
ReVap uses the cooling capacity of stored liquid CO2 to chill glycol. The transfer of heat between glycol and liquid CO2 subsequently raises the temperature of CO2 to its evaporation point. The CO2 is now available for the consumer as gas.
Since the simple concept relies solely on the efficient reuse of existing resources, the ReVap solution offers a saving equivalent to about 30%* of a brewery’s total annual CO2 production costs.
So, if you are looking to reduce energy bills and increase your positive impact on the environment, ReVap is an obvious choice.
- Reduces CO2 production costs by an average of 30% in breweries
- ROI within approx.12 months
- Can be installed without halting production (i.e. no downtime)
- Virtually maintenance free
- Emphasizes the use of ecological and financially sustainable processes and procedures
ReVap is supplied as a complete, fully functioning unit. It includes primary and secondary glycol pumps, plate heat exchangers, insulated interconnected piping, automatic and manual valves, expansion vessel and a switchboard.
