Abstract

The object of this research was to investigate of the energy performance of a national chicken slaughterhouse in order to achieve condenser heat utilization generated by the operation of the existing, refrigerant systems. The paper focuses also for the technical realization of condenser heat utilization by concept plans and payback time calculations. The utilizing heat of a cooling circle's condenser is a quite quickly returnable investment. The time of payback is around 330 days by heat utilizing for hot water preheating and also air heating.

Keywords: heat recovery, condenser heat utilization, refrigerant system, energy design, energy consumption, energy saving
