Intelligent Hands Off Heatpump Systems

The Introduction.

Buckley and Son (Watson Dairy) based in Huddersfield process 1,000,000 litres of milk and cream per week at their Dry Hill Farm processing factory. A 998kW Heat Chill Heatpump has been installed with 26km of in-ground pipework to benefit from the Government backed 20yr RHI scheme to pre heat the pasteurisation process, heat the packing sheds and hot water. The free by-product of this heating process is chilling. This is used to assist the chilling of the milk, cream and cold stores.

The Process.

This solution is fully automated to provide efficient heating and chilling, maximising and monitoring every aspect of the system via our in house designed and built remote access control system. To maintain the required chilling by-product 50,000 litres of water for the factory processes per day is being heated. At the times when the heatpump is heating, there is 100% fossil fuel replacement. 80% free chilling while there is a heating demand down to 0°c for the milk, cream and cold stores results in increased savings.

The Figures.

  • £2,704,043* of projected income and savings with the 20 year Government Tariff
  • A 4 year pay back
  • 35°c at 350% heating efficiency
  • 1°c at 300% chilling efficiency
  • Total energy efficiency of 650%

The Conclusion.

An intelligent bespoke Calibrate Controller ensures that the system is operated remotely for all tariff monitoring and peace of mind, a true ‘Hands-off Heatpump Heat Chill solution’. The Calibrate 20 year maintenance and extended warranty package means that there is no unexpected expenditure for the lifetime of the tariff.

Demand Side Response (DSR)

DSR financially incentivises energy users to increase or reduce on demand nonessential energy usage at times of peak or low demand.

Why is demand response needed?

The National Grid has to maintain a certain level of energy production capacity above actual demand. DSR is designed to provide the margin, either by increasing or decreasing site energy use.

What are the benefits of demand side response to you?

The primary business arguments for DSR are financial renumeration and sustainability. DSR not only allows businesses to avoid higher energy prices and receive renumeration during times on and off peak demand.
