Thermal Energy Storage (Tes)

PCM Products, phase change, thermal storage

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

For example, the excess capacity of existing +7ºC water chillers can be stored in +10ºC PCM containers over-night using lower ambient and lower electricity costs. This efficiently and lower cost stored energy tops up the day peak loads saving considerable running costs, double the existing system capacity or halve the chiller capacity for new design.
