heating capacity

heating capacity, recovery capacity

The capacity of a water heater to raise a given number of gallons per hour (liters per hour) by a specified number of degrees, for example, from 40 to 140°F (4.4 to 60°C); usually expressed in Btu per hour (kilowatts per hour); does not include the heat losses in the system which the water heater serves.

High voltage Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heaters with high heating capacity are widely used as a main heating equipment in electric vehicles.
(Frigel already supplies "passive" variotherm systems, which suspend cooling during mold filling, allowing the incoming melt to heat the mold, and then turn on cooling flow.) Frigel's new Thermogel THC units have heating capacity up to 54 kW and cooling capacity up to 180 kW.
Subsequent phases will incorporate the replacement of a failing steam condensate return system with a protected durable condensate return - essential for greater heating capacity and flexibility as well as the introduction of a complete combined heat and power system with auxiliary boilers for redundant heat capacity.
Today the development of methods of HDH designing and determining its optimum parameters providing the maximum heating capacity and coefficient of transformation of energy is topical.
The first of these projected models will have a cooling capacity of three tons of refrigeration, coupled with a heating capacity of 120,000 Btu per hr.
The H2i R2-Series of variable refrigerant flow zoning systems for commercial applications can operate at 100% heating capacity in temperatures down to 0[degrees]F (-18[degrees]C).
The most powerful model in the line is available with either 18 or 24 kW of heating capacity, and can also be adapted to heating capacity of 46 kW.
These refrigerants have a GWP lower than 10 (Arimoto et Al, 2011) but have lower heating capacity than R-410A and flammability issues (Barve and Cremaschi, 2012).
Figure 2 compares the heating capacity obtained with R-410A, ARM-70a (3 refrigerant charges) and DR-5 (3 refrigerant charges).
The Model E5 comes with heated platens with a total of 2,000 watts heating capacity per heated plate.
The pre-existing "TDJ301DM" series, featuring 2.5 kW rated heating capacity, uses hot-gas bypass technology; it has earned a well reputation in the market, being adopted mainly in delivery trucks servicing convenience stores.
