Typical market sectors include supermarkets, hospitals, data centers, industrial, bottling plants, pharmaceutical, educational institutions, correctional institutions, mixed-use office/residential, food-processing facilities, and other energy-intensive facilities with continuous baseload power and thermal energy requirements.
The Model 400 system generates a large amount of thermal energy in the form of “high” and “low” grade heat. The high-grade heat of the Model 400 can be used to drive a single-effect absorption chiller to produce an average of about 50 tons of chilled water. The heat from multiple fuel cells can be combined to drive larger absorbers. While high-grade heat is being used to create chilled water, low-grade heat can simultaneously be used to provide useful heat, allowing for combined cooling, heat and power applications for buildings. Typical applications for chilled water include space cooling and refrigeration sub-cooling.
The Model 400 offers customers significant energy density and location flexibility. It can be installed outdoors or indoors, from basements to rooftops and requires a fraction of the area and volume required by equivalent solar/wind systems.
More than half of the energy potential in traditional, centralized power generation goes up the stack as exhaust heat. The Model 400 system converts heat exhaust into cooling and heating, turning potential waste into useable energy. While central powerplants achieve percentages in the mid-30s, Model 400 systems offer up to 90% system efficiency and run on standard pipeline natural gas.
The PureCell® Model 400 system operates steadily, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Because it operates around the clock and is not affected by weather or time of day, the Model 400 is a strong fit for customers with smaller baseload power requirements. The system can operate independent of or in parallel with the electric grid, making it a critical power backup during natural disasters, man-made emergencies and grid fluctuations. To ensure your peace of mind, the system is remotely monitored for functionality, ensuring your business has reliable power.
