How it Works: PX G1300 Pressure Exchanger

In this science video, Energy Recovery’s Chief Scientist, Azam Thatte, Ph.D, explains how the PX G1300® pressure exchanger provides free compression in a CO2 refrigeration system, thus making it more energy efficient.

Similar to a heat exchanger which exchanges heat between two fluid streams, the pressure exchanger works by transferring energy from high-pressure to low-pressure CO2. Watch the video below to learn how it works: 


About the PX G1300 Pressure Exchanger

The PX G1300 pressure exchanger improves the system performance of CO2 refrigeration by reducing energy costs, increasing cooling capacity, and increasing energy efficiency, especially at high ambient temperatures.
