PCM-based passive-cooling system

PCM Products, phase change, thermal storage

Phase-change materials (PCM) store and release thermal energy during the process of melting and freezing, and the latest range of PCM solutions between -100ºC and +885 ºC offer new application opportunities.

For example, the cool energy available over-night is stored in the form of +27ºC PCM containers within the building, and the stored energy is later utilised to absorb the internal and solar heat gains during day-time for an energy-free passive-cooling system
