Solar AC and Refrigeration is a thermodynamic collection system, it is not Solar PV. To reproduce the same average energy saved, 30 to 40 250 watt Solar PV panels would need to be used to equal the efficiently of a single ThermX solar unit.
Regardless of the type of compressor in use on your air conditioning or refrigeration system, DC Inverter, Super DC Inverter, Hyper DC Inverter, Staged Compression, or Digital Scroll, 80% of the energy is consumed by the compressor. ThermX simply makes that compressor more efficient, using less electricity.
Inverter & digital scroll systems
Traditional inverter and digital scroll systems are engineered to produce fluctuating loads subject to the system’s requirements. When the load requirement is low, the compressor runs at a low speed. The system automatically increases its load capacity when the ambient temperature rises; therefore, the hotter it gets, the harder the compressor works.
"The hotter it gets, the harder this system works"
Staged compression systems
When the load requirement is low, the stage system is designed to run on reduced compressor numbers (i.e. single stage), commanding additional stages as the load requires.
Therefore as with fluctuating load systems, the hotter it gets, the load requirement from the system increases. In the case of multistage compression, additional compressors enter the phased platform to satisfy load demand.
"Again, the hotter it gets, the less efficient the system becomes"
ThermX increases the capacity of the compressor, which uses 100% of the free, renewable energy provided by the sun. ThermX:
Raises the solar collector’s internal energy by increasing the kinetic energy within gas molecules.
The molecules spread out and move through the condenser at a higher velocity.
The result? Increased DeltaT combines with heightened kinetic energy to increase the condenser’s surface area. The projected increase in pressure is released and the condenser experiences a reduction in energy demand.
