About this book

Water Purification Using Heat Pumps charts the development of heat pump technology from theoretical principles to the operation of practical systems for the purification of water, both for human consumption and a wide variety of industrial purposes. This book is the result of a long-term co-operative research and professional development programme between the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), Mexico, and the University of Salford, UK. It provides the design basis for the fabrication of small and large scale commercial absorption heat pump systems, and includes a comprehensive treatment of the economics of heat pump systems. In addition to the increasing demand for potable water there is a rapidly increasing demand for clean water in industries ranging from foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals to electronics. This book will be essential reading for industrial engineers and others concerned with the cost-effective, environmentally friendly production of clean water.


Preface. Introduction. Design basis for mechanical vapour compression heat pump systems. Design basis for absorption heat pumps operating with water/salt working pairs. An experimental mechanical vapour compression heat pump assisted effluent purification unit. An experimental absorption heat pump assisted effluent purification unit. Economics of heat pump systems. Alternative purification systems and the future potential for heat pump technology. Appendices. Index.
