air agitation of glycol?
I'm commissioning a used German system with a 1000 liter glycol reservoir. The refrigerant flows through a set of large plates suspended vertically in the tank. there is a regenerative blower set up for air agitation in the tank to keep glycol mixed. Anyone see this setup before? What would the advantage of this over a recirculation pump be? And wouldn't it tend to warm the glycol with warm air and cool the room in which it's installed? I'd like to rip out the blower and install a recirculation pump, but someone knew better than me to design it this way. Comments?
