A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240035712A1) describes a system that includes a pressure exchanger (PX) designed to exchange pressure between two fluids at different pressures. The first fluid enters the PX at a higher pressure and exits at a lower pressure, while the second fluid enters at a lower pressure and exits at a higher pressure. The system also includes components such as condensers, heat exchangers, pumps, and receivers to facilitate the exchange of thermal energy between the fluids and their respective environments. The system can operate as a refrigeration system or a heat pump system, with both the first and second fluids being carbon dioxide (CO2).

Furthermore, the patent outlines a method and a computer-readable storage medium with instructions for causing pressure exchange and thermal energy transfer between the two fluids using the PX, condensers, and heat exchangers. The method involves providing the first fluid to the PX at a higher pressure, causing it to exit at a lower pressure, and transferring thermal energy to different environments. The computer-readable storage medium contains instructions for executing these operations, including providing the first fluid to the PX via a pump and transferring thermal energy from the second fluid to a second environment. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive system and method for efficient pressure exchange and thermal energy transfer between fluids in various applications.
