Title (EN) ROTATABLE HEAT TRANSFER APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE TRANSFERT DE CHALEUR ROTATIF
Abstract:
(EN) Heat transfer apparatus comprises a refrigeration assembly having a low pressure region and a high pressure region. The apparatus may also include a power generation assembly connected to the refrigeration assembly between the low and high pressure regions. The refrigeration assembly and the power generation assembly are so arranged that refrigerant in the high pressure region can be passed through the power generation assembly to the low pressure region of the refrigeration assembly. Power may be generated by the power generation assembly on passage therethrough of the refrigerant. The apparatus may also include an absorption region comprising a piston and cylinder, ejector cycles in combination with absorption cycles, fibre heat exchanges, vortex tubes, and one embodiment comprises a lamp or a torch.
(FR) Appareil de transfert de chaleur constitué d'un ensemble de réfrigération présentant une région basse pression et une région haute pression. L'appareil peut comporter également un ensemble de production d'énergie relié à l'ensemble réfrigération entre les régions basse et haute pression. L'ensemble réfrigération et l'ensemble de production d'énergie sont disposés de telle sorte que le réfrigérant dans la région haute pression peut être amené via l'ensemble de génération électrique à la région basse pression de l'ensemble réfrigération. L'énergie peut être produite par l'ensemble de production d'énergie lors du passage par celui-ci du réfrigérant. L'appareil peut également comporter une région d'absorption comprenant une unité piston-cylindre, des cycles à éjection associés à des cycles d'absorption, des échanges de chaleur par fibres, des tubes vortex et selon un mode de réalisation, une lampe ou une torche.
