SCTF - Steam Compressor Test Field

The aim of the project is to provide an experimental infrastructure for the development of innovative, efficient and environmentally friendly steam compressors for high-temperature heat pumps (HTHP). This will be achieved by expanding the THERESA test facility with a steam compressor test field and combining the expertise of the newly founded Institute of Low-Carbon Industrial Processes of the German Aerospace Center (DLR-DI) and the Institute for Process Technology, Process Automation and Measurement Technology (IPM) of the Zittau Görlitz University of Applied Sciences (HSZG). The establishment of the steam compressor test field is the basis for the optimization, efficiency increase and further development of steam compressors.
