How it Works

Developed by an international team in both the United States and Europe, the Delta-H Collector is able to increase the efficiency of almost any HVAC system by over 30%. Using our cutting edge technology and the latest scientific processes, the Delta-H Collector delivers the following benefits versus a conventional HVAC system:


The Delta-H Collector increases the cooling capacity of the system, so the compressor operates at a reduced speed and thus consume less energy than a conventional HVAC system
The compressor is under less stress which increases its service life
The higher the outdoor temperature, the more efficient the Delta-H Collector
Cooling capacity increased in excess of 30%
No maintenance required


1
Compressor -

The compressor is traditionally the heart of a HVAC system. It takes in the warm, low-pressure refrigerant gas that carries the unwanted heat from the space being cooled. The compressor increases this refrigerant gas pressure to create a high pressure, superheated gas that discharges from the compressor. At this point the refrigerant gas is hotter than the outside air temperature, creating a temperature differential or ‘Heat Sink’.


The compressor requires a lot of energy to create this high pressure. Typically, about 95% of the total energy consumed in an HVAC system is used by the compressor. To improve efficiency, many HVAC systems units now use staged or variable speed compressors. Whilst this does help, the compressor still has to provide 100% of the heat and pressure required to create the outside heat sink.

The Delta-H Collector -

The Delta H Collector replaces one of the functions of the compressor.

3
Condenser -

The condenser provides the heat exchange between the refrigerant gas and the outside space. The greater the differential in temperature between the refrigerant gas and the outside space, the quicker the heat transfer. Subsequently the heat transfer converts the high-pressure refrigerant gas back into a high-pressure, cold liquid which is essential for the next stage of the cooling process.


4
Evaporator/Air Handler -

This device essentially works in the opposite manner to the condenser.


The now cold, high pressure refrigerant liquid enters a small valve, which reduces the pressure of the refrigerant instantly. This sudden reduction in pressure causes the refrigerant liquid to change state back to a cold wet vapor, losing further heat in the process.


The now cold, low pressure, wet vapor enters the evaporator at a colder temperature than the space being cooled, again creating a heat sink. Heat is absorbed from the room air into the cold wet vapor refrigerant, which converts back again into a low-pressure cool gas. The air leaving the evaporator is chilled and dehumidified before re-entering the room space cooler and dryer. The refrigerant is now a cool low-pressure gas, carrying all the unwanted heat from the space being cooled and returns to the compressor to start the process again.

La réfrigération en pratique

1: Compresseur - Le compresseur d'un climatiseur est un dispositif électrique qui sert à comprimer le gaz (fluide frigorigène) qui permet dans un cycle compression/détente de produire un transfert de chaleur d'un coté à l'autre d'un circuit frigorifique.

2: Collecteur - Le Delta-H collector réduit l’utilisation du compresseur. En absorbant la chaleur latente du soleil, il augmente légèrement la température du gaz réfrigérant. Ceci est suffisant pour fournir le dissipateur thermique requis au condenseur. Le compresseur partage dorénavant la charge de travail avec le collecteur Delta-H, ce qui lui permet de fonctionner à basse vitesse, économisant ainsi de l'énergie et réduisant les coûts de fonctionnement.
Plus la température est élevée, plus le climatiseur consomme de l’énergie pour maintenir la température ambiante souhaitée. Avec le Delta-H collector, le compresseur continue de fonctionner à basse vitesse.

3: Condenseur - Le condenseur de climatisation est une pièce essentielle se trouvant à la suite du compresseur. En résumé, le condenseur est un radiateur de refroidissement qui transforme le gaz en liquide, d'où le nom de condensateur (condensation). Avec le Delta-H collector installé, le changement d’état gaz / liquide est plus rapide dans le condenseur.

4: Evaporateur - Evaporateur. L'évaporateur d'un climatiseur est la partie du circuit dans laquelle le fluide frigorigène va capter de la chaleur au profit d'un fluide caloporteur ou de l'air dans le cas d'un circuit à détente directe.
