Demonstration and Future Production
TCHP™ Pilot Units (2020/2021)
Prior development has focused on technological innovation to drive down cost, increase overall performance, incorporate external equipment, and improve durability for pilot installation.
- Deliver pilot units for extended lifecycle testing (durability) to demonstrate enhanced performance (COP 1.8 at 8˚C, 1.6 at -25˚C) with variable load controls.
- Improve COP and power density by eliminating external electrical energy consumption when operating in ambient temperatures from -30˚C to +30˚C.
- Improve thermal transfer and energy extraction with innovative burner design to demonstrate ultra-low emission (NOx & SOx) levels in line with indoor air quality standards.
- Benchmark TCHP™ against existing HVAC equipment including performance, cost, GHG emissions, maintenance, and durability.
TCHP™ Initial Target Production Units (2021/2022)
Initial stages of production will include the integration of 200 TCHP™ units into active building environments. This will include focus on production level controls, auxiliary systems, user interface, and support procedures. In addition, burner development will allow the TCHP™ system to use other fuel sources, such as solar and bio-fuels, making it truly fuel agnostic and available for use in nearly any environment. ThermoLift plans to create a suite of products to directly address the needs of different sized buildings and applications.
