Refrigeration and Heat Pumps

Priorities of Research & Development and Services

The ILK main department Refrigeration and Heat Pumps researches and develops energy-efficient and innovative refrigeration technologies and refrigerating equipment for industry and for appliers in a wide range of temperature, starting at deep cooling and freezing up to AC refrigeration and heat pump technology.

Technologies of refrigeration storage and transport as well as food cold chain are major components of ILK`s work.

Refrigeration and Heat Pumps

  • Calculation and development of compression refrigerating machines and heat pumps
  • Investigation and test of refrigerating equipment, refrigerant compressors, mass and heat exchangers
  • Investigation and test of refrigerating plants, household refrigerators, heat pumps
  • Software engineering of thermodynamic and transport properties of refrigerants and brines
  • Manufacturing and prototyping, especially the development and manufacturing of test stands for refrigerating equipment
