Yes, water. Would you believe this is the only coolant in a big, powerful chiller? And how about a system that can take widely fluctuating heat inflow to drive an intriguing kind of cooling? These are two prime selling points in an adsorption chiller now newly arriving from abroad, after two decades in Japan and one in Europe. If this epoch-making cooling technology continues to pan out here---as it seems to be doing, so far---then its process for water-based chilling could revolutionize combined coolin...... continue reading
