Comprehensive Solar Thermal Integration for Industrial Processes

This report shows industrial processes for comprehensive solar integration. The paper discusses solar thermal energy-integration methods, cost estimations of system components and solar fractions. Multiple case study examples relevant to the dairy and biothermal industry are presented. Each case study includes three scenarios, and the results of each of those are discussed here.

Solar Energy Use for Energy Savings in Dairy Processing Plants

This paper focuses on the use of solar energy in the dairy industry in New Zealand. Included is an examination of historical records related to milk production and processing during peak levels of solar radiation. The study also includes an analyzation of four types of solar collectors, including: glazed flat plates, evacuated tubes, evacuated tubes with CPC reflectors and a building-integrated solar collector under development at the University of Waikato (UoW). The results of these analyzations are included in the study.

Integration of a Solar Thermal System in a Dairy Process

This paper analyzes several scenarios of the integration of a solar thermal system in the production process of dairy. The results show that in the parameters of the scenario(s) examined in the study, solar thermal potential was considerable, and should be examined as a possibility as an energy option. These results could be considered when developing AgriSolar operations that include solar and dairy.

A Comprehensive Review to Study and Implement Solar Energy in Dairy Industries

In this review, analysis of triple-impact vapour ingestion refrigeration framework involving a high, medium and low-temperature generator is characterized. This review suggests the solar power-related triple impact vapour retention refrigeration for heating and cooling applications in dairy industries that should be developed.
