GROWING DEMAND FOR MICRO CHP SOLUTIONS


XRGI25

The new MicroCHP (< 50 kWh) solution gives you the high-efficiency water heating you’d expect from Lochinvar while simultaneously generating electricity as it heats.


  • Produce Heat and Power from the Same Fuel Source

  • 24kW Power - 163,000 Btu Heat

  • Reduce Utility Costs

  • Supports Grid Reliability

  • Low Emissions Reduce Carbon Footprint



INTRODUCING MICRO CHP

The terms “cogeneration” and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) are synonyms for the simultaneous production of hot water and supplemental electricity for on-site use. Lochinvar’s Micro CHP solution is powered by an internal combustion engine. This makes them easy to install in a variety of commercial applications.



TANK OPTIONS

A Storage Tank is required for proper operation of the Micro CHP (µCHP) system. It ensures that any temporary drops in heat load below the output of the Power Unit do not cause the Power Unit to stop, and enables the µCHP system to service temporary heat loads beyond the output of the Power Unit. Two options are available, the standard Storage Tank and the Domestic Hot Water Tank (DHW).



The DHW Tank works in much the same way as the Storage Tank, with the addition of an indirect coil installed in the tank's interior. Potable water is passed through the coil allowing it to absorb heat stored in the tank by the µCHP.


Lochinvar Storage Tanks come standard with a built-in Storage Control which communicates with the µCHP system ensuring proper operation.




COGENERATION HELPS NEW YORK COLLEGE MEET SUSTAINABILITY GOALS

Recently, Finger Lakes Community College in Upstate New York integrated the Micro CHP XRGI® 25 combined heat and power system into a new KNIGHT boiler system. For them, the switch was about more than the money they would save.
