Title: HEAT PUMP WITH PRIME MOVER IN CRYOGENIC APPLICATIONS AND REFRIGERATING FLUIDS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a liquefied gas regasification line comprising a vaporization section of said gas, a prime mover, a first heat exchanger (HE1) operating on the circuit of a first intermediate fluid and a heat pump (HP), said heat pump (HP) comprising an evaporator (VPC) and a condenser (CPC), said heat pump operating with a refrigerating fluid which in said evaporator (VPC) acquires heat from a second intermediate fluid (HPF2) and which in said condenser (CPC) surrenders heat to a third intermediate fluid (HPF3), said third intermediate fluid (HPF3) operating a further heat exchanger with which it surrenders heat to the liquefied gas, characterized in that said prime mover supplies mechanical or electrical energy to said heat pump (HP) and thermal energy to said first heat exchanger (HE1).
