If you, on the other hand, wish to develop and optimize your existing system or product to make sure that it lives up to the new energy requirements in the building regulation and eco-design directive, we can help you solve this task as well. Read more about standards and legislation here
Get your large scale heat pumps and chillers tested on-site
Large heat pumps and chillers are often used in installations with many yearly operation hours, which provides the potential for achieving significant savings by optimizing the performance of an unit. Are you a manufacturer of a large scale heat pump or chiller for process cooling and airconditioning, you now have the opportunity to get your units tested on-site at Danish Technological Institute. The test can be adjusted according to your neds, depending on whether you wish to get the performance of your system and its potential for optimizing tested, or to find out whether the system lives up to its documentation.
Do you need help with measuring noise?
Noise in combination with the roll-out of heat pumps is a growing challenge. It is caused by the fact that the consumers might be reluctant to buy a heat pump if the noise level is too high. Danish Technological Institute have a laboratory for measuring noise after current international standards at its disposal and can offer you guidance based on knowledge of optimuum design etc., which can reduce the noise from a given heat pump system.
Improve your skills as electrician and counsellor
