A company in Delhi, India, Bry-Air (Asia) has launched its Adsorption Chiller, under license from Power Partners Inc. of Athens, Ga.
According to Bry-Air, the process is environmentally “green” because it cools using waste heat available in process industries, by using water and a silica gel dessicant. It cuts down on carbon dioxide emissions and lowers energy expenses, according to Deepak Pahwa, Bry-Air's managing director.
Part of the Pahwa Group, Bry-Air has 50 years of experience, the company said. It runs manufacturing operations in India and has fully owned subsidiaries in China, Malaysia, Switzerland and Brazil.
Power Partners markets Eco-Max absorption chillers made in Georgia. According to its website, Power Partners began as a Westinghouse transformer plant in the 1950s. Purchased by ABB and two industry consultants bought the plant in 1999, and they consultants, Sherrie Ford and Steve Hollis, bought the plant outright in 2003, renaming the business Power Partners.
The transformer plant began also producing absorption chillers in 2009.
In 2012, Luke Faulstick became owner, president and CEO of Power Partners. Hollis moved to the position of chairman, and executive vice president for development. Ford died in 2011.
