Brief Project Description and Progress

The EXP-HEAT goal is to improve the performance of heat pump units, by integrating a new hydraulic piston type expander and optimizing its design and combined operation at a wide operation range. Apart from the developed expander that is expected to be commercialized after the project end, two new products are planned to be developed: a new heat pump featuring the new expander and a retrofit kit for retrofitting already installed heat pumps with the expander machine.
