THE POSSIBILITY OF USING THE ENERGY POTENTIAL OF WASTE POOL WATER
Ing. Anna Predajnianska, Prof. Ing. Ján Takács, PhD
Thermal baths in Slovakia are producers of wastewater, which hides considerable energy potential. The wastewater from the thermal pools has often exceeds the maximum permissible value of the temperature of the wastewater discharged into the water recipient. As a result, there is undesirable damage to the environment, which results in sanctions for the operators of these facilities. Our aim is to present the concept of a single- and double-step heat recuperation system of waste pool water using applications of various types of heat exchangers or heat pumps. The aim of this application is to ensure a suitable temperature to the discharged waste pool water, efficient use of the energy potential of the waste water and saving of primary energy in the form of geothermal water, thus extending the life of the entire system.
