Title: Development and demonstration of an electric heat pump for waste-heat recovery in industry. The selection of working-fluid candidates for use in high-temperature industrial heat pumps. Topical report, September 1977-December 1978

Abstract

The development of a high-temperature industrial heat pump depends upon the identification of an acceptable working fluid. An extensive search was made to select potential candidates meeting certain appropriate physical and hazard requirements. These candidates were then evaluated in detail with respect to their thermodynamic and economic performance as well as their relative health and safety aspects. Four fluids - methanol, thiophene, hexane, and Fluorinol 85 - are recommended as acceptable candidates for high-temperature heat-pump duty over the temperature range of approximately 180 to 330/sup 0/F (80 to 165/sup 0/C). Assuming the thermal stability and chemical compatibility of methanol are substantiated in the concurrent materials test program, it is the fluid of choice because its use results in the lowest thermal-delivery cost.
