How it works
With the Cotes Exergic Technology, you can utilize a combination of sustainable energy sources to achieve considerable energy cost savings and large carbon footprint reductions. All you need for Cotes Exergic Technology to work is hot water heated by a sustainable energy source:
- Waste heat (District heating or waste heat from elsewhere in the li-ion battery production)
- Biomass or Biogas (if available and sustainable)
- Solar thermal panels
- CO₂ Heat Pump used for both heating and cooling. Pay once and use twice.
- Electricity (From sustainable energy sources, i.e., wind power, hydropower, solar power and/or nuclear power)
- Gas **
**Cotes does not recommend or consider gas as a source of sustainable energy due to the environmental footprint. We recommend utilizing energy for the hot water from sustainable or “green” energy sources instead. However, if gas is a requirement, the water can come from a central gas boiler.
Why use hot💧water?
Cotes Excergic Technology uses hot water because it enables flexibility, makes your dry room operations safer, and has low installation costs—all you need is hot water [80-90°C].
Because the energy to heat the water can come from a combination of sustainable energy sources and can be changed in the future if the price of energy changes, it makes the Cotes Exergic Technology more sustainable and more future proof. This flexibility is not possible if the dehumidifier is built for gas regeneration specifically.
Cotes Exergic Technology is highly efficient. We are able to provide a dew point of -120°C for an unstaffed dry room and -70°C for a manned room.
The Cotes Exergic Technology is less vulnerable to toxic leaks and has a high safety margin running nominal conditions at low temperatures. Running optimal conditions at low temperatures (80-90°C) allows the electric booster inside the dehumidifier to increase the drying capacity when needed without jeopardizing the effectiveness or the safety of the system. Our closest competitors run optimal conditions at maximum temperature (140-180°C) making it vulnerable to any fluctuation in humidity and drying capacity.
