Secondary Circuit Systems

Systems for the use of primary energy from -150 up to 400 °C

Secondary circuit systems make use of thermal energy from existing steam, thermal oil, cooling water and cooling brine networks. The control facilitates the automatic extraction of the energy required for heating and cooling from the primary system (via heat exchanger or by the direct injection of the heat transfer fluid).

Application examples

  • Exploitation of existing sorts of primary energy, such as thermal oil, steam, cooling brine and cold oil
  • Temperature control of stirrer tanks
  • Temperature control of reactors in chemistry, pharmacy and biotechnology
  • Use in materials testing, research and production
  • Temperature control of heat exchangers and evaporators

Series TR Secondary Circuit Systems

Secondary circuit systems use existing energy sources, such as steam, cooling water and brine – so-called primary systems. Here, the objective is to integrate the existing infrastructure and best possible use of the thermal energy on the primary side. In this way only a single heat transfer fluid circuit is used (single fluid system) on the consumer instead of steam, cooling water and brine circuits. Important advantages arise through the use of only one heat transfer liquid: due to the seamless and reproducible temperature control throughout the whole temperature range changeover to different media is not required. Through the use of thermal oil low operating pressures prevail and the heat carrier also acts as a separating medium between the product and the environment.

Series KP Secondary Circuit Systems

In order to achieve still higher levels of purity in modern production methods, reactions are run at very low temperatures. The range of modules from LAUDA includes the Kryopac for this application. Here the cooling power of evaporating nitrogen is exploited and transferred to a liquid heat transfer fluid. Kryopac systems are secondary circuit systems which are cooled with liquid nitrogen on the primary side. For these extreme cooling applications only special low temperature heat transfer fluids are used. LAUDA developed a special technique to solve the known freezing problems. A suitable intermediate medium transfers the cooling of the low temperature nitrogen (-196 °C) to the heat transfer fluid, controlled accurately to the degree. For this innovative method LAUDA received the European Patent No. 1 030 135.
