Document Description
Project proposes the development and field testing of a novel, near isothermal air compressor; enabling improved efficiency, maintenance and reliability. The unit will be tested at an industrial facility in southern CA. This near isothermal compressor, or Carnot Compressor, solves the heat of compression problem by using a working liquid to compress a gas, while actively removing the heat of compression throughout the compression process. These energy savings are expected to significantly improve the efficiency of industrial air applications, the technology can also be applied to other compressor applications in the future, such as compression of natural gas in transmission and distribution systems, leading to additional energy savings.
