Burning Gas to Cool Down!

It seems strange to think of burning gas to provide cooling, but in many cases it makes perfect sense. An absorption chiller utilises gas to heat an ammonia solution within a sealed refrigeration circuit. Heating causes the solution to dilute, a process which absorbs further heat, thus providing the cooling [...]
