Using latent heat storage with PCM


Today, latent heat storage systems can store 3-4 times as much as a customary sensitive warm-water storage system – and have the same volume. Latent heat storage relies on PCM (phase change materials) in the form of salt hydrates or paraffin derivatives. These enable the respective process to be optimized at different temperatures and for different uses. The lecture will visualize PCM-based latent heat storage, measurements made by Münster University of the Applied Sciences and applications in practice using projects that have been realized. Moreover, individual projects handled by the Axiotherm company will be presented and explained.
