Merits of using absorption chillers

-Saves about 65-75% of the required electrical power needed for equivalent capacity mechanical compression systems.

-Saves from 30% to 40% of operating expenses compared to mechanical compression systems in Egypt.

-Low noise operation.

- Low maintenance cost as there is no mechanical wear except for vaccum and circulating small pump.

- The refrigerant (water) is environment friendly compared to refrigerant of the equivalent mechanical compression systems (CFC or HCFC).

- Longer life expectancy, years without major overhauls, compared to years for equivalent mechanical compression systems.
