TES District Cooling
District cooling provides the same features and benefits as comfort cooling with TES but on a much larger scale. The system ideally employs the production of ice or chilled water during off-peak electrical usage periods (usually at night) using lower cost electricity. This stored energy is then distributed to several buildings or facilities during on-peak electrical usage periods for air conditioning.
MaximICE Slurry Ice (Thermal Energy Storage) TES District Cooling provides the following unique benefits:
<> Lower delivery temperatures (28°F ~ 34°F) to the heat exchangers
<> Lower temperatures to air handling units (32°F ~ 36°F)
<> Lower relative humidity for more effective cooling
<> Greatly reduced construction, installation and operational costs of
overall HVAC system:
– Reduced heat exchanger sizes.
– Reduced pump and pipe sizes.
– Reduced air handling unit sizes.
– Reduced flow rates.
– Greatly reduced TES tank size (compared to chilled water system).
– Reduced space for air ducts, decreasing building – height requirements and construction costs.
<> Most energy efficient ice generator available.
<> Largest capacity systems available in the smallest footprint.
<> Flexibility to operate as a chiller as well as an ice maker.
<> Flexible and cost effective tank design and utilization.
