Title: HEAT PUMP WITH A GAS TRAP, METHOD FOR OPERATING A HEAT PUMP WITH A GAS TRAP, AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING A HEAT PUMP WITH A GAS TRAP
Abstract:
The invention relates to a heat pump comprising a condenser (306) for condensing compressed working steam, a gas trap, which is coupled to the condenser by means of a foreign gas supply (325) and comprises the following features: a housing (330) comprising a foreign gas supply inlet (332), a working liquid supply line (338) in the housing; a working liquid discharge line (340) in the housing, and a pump (342) for pumping gas from the housing, wherein the housing, the working liquid supply line and the working liquid discharge line are designed such that, during operation, a working liquid flow flows from the working liquid supply line to the working liquid discharge line in the housing, and the working liquid supply line is coupled to the heat pump in order to conduct working liquid, during operation of the heat pump, which is colder than a working liquid in the condenser.
