The distinction between the central, low-charge NH3 systems provided by Scantec compared to others is energy efficiency. While other systems focus on NH3 inventory reduction through multiplexing, our focus is on superior system energy efficiency with the lowest possible ammonia inventory. With energy efficiency as the priority, the only answer is a central plant concept with utilization of all heat exchanger surfaces at all times. Compared with industry standard HFC based systems, this can reduce annualized energy consumption by up to 2.5 – 3 times and by 1.15 to 1.4 times compared with conventional, central liquid overfeed NH3 systems.
