TESSOL(THERMAL ENERGY SOLUTIONS)
FUEL FREE REFRIGERATION
PLUGnCHILL is a next generation technology product fom TESSOL for cold chain application. It eliminates the use of diesel for reefer and insulated cabins. This reduces operating costs in transport refrigeration and cold stores by 60%. The added advantage is that this system ensures necessary temperature for refrigerated transportation of products/produce according to its specific temperature requirement.
The temperature inside the insulated cabin is usually maintained for 18 – 24 hrs during point to point transport. maximum charging time is up to 6 hours.
Unlike conventional systems, being completely decoupled from the vehicle engine, it has no adverse impact on the maintenence costs of the vehicle and eliminates any issues of midway engine failures. Therefore once stored in a charged vehicle, your goods are definately safe.
Frozen: Ice Cream, Meat & poultry, Fish, Dairy.
Chilled: Dairy, Cakes, Pharmaceuticals, Fruits & Vegetables, Flowers.
ADVANTAGES OF THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE (TES) SYSTEMS
- Thermal energy storage (TES) systems cool a storage medium and then use that cold medium to cool air at a later point in time.
- Using thermal storage can reduce the size and initial cost of cooling systems, lower energy costs, and reduce maintenance costs.
- If electricity costs more during the day than at night, thermal storage systems can reduce utility bills further.
- Systems can be sized to eliminate compressor energy use during periods when electricity is most expensive, but most systems are designed to simply augment mechanical cooling in order to limit peak demand.
ECONOMICS OF USING TES, WHEN TO DECIDE FOR TES
- High energy demand costs
- Energy time-of-use rates
- High daily load variations
- Short duration loads
- Infrequent or cyclical loads
- Capacity of cooling equipment has trouble handling peak loads
EFFECTIVE APPLICATIONS OF THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE INCLUDE:
- Electrical power use management by shifting the cooling load to off-peak hours and reducing peak load
- Reducing required capacity of building and process cooling systems, or helping existing cooling equipment to handle an increased load.
Water storage systems are often used in new large cooling system applications in conjunction with cogeneration and/or district energy systems. Water-ice storage is the most common cooling storage in smaller applications. Because latent heat storage (phase change between water and ice) has a smaller volume, it is often chosen for retrofit applications with limited space.
In general, the buildings that offer the highest potential are offices, retail, and medical facilities.
Thermal energy storage systems are installed for two major reasons:
a) lower initial project costs.
b) lower operating costs.
Initial cost may be lower because distribution temperatures are lower and equipment and pipe sizes can be reduced. Operating costs may be lower due to smaller compressors and pumps as well as reduced time-of-day or peak demand utility costs. The economics of thermal storage is very site- and system-specific. A feasibility study is generally required to determine the optimum design for a specific application. TES projects often profit from unexpected benefits that are secondary to the primary reason for an action. For example, a well designed TES air conditioning application may experience reduced chiller energy consumption, lower pump horsepower, smaller pipes, high reliability, better system balancing and control, and lower maintenance costs.
