Decentralized latent heat storage

Rubitherm offices

Within the framework of the research project 'PCM-Demo II' three different decentralized PCM storages are going to be installed in the offices of Rubitherm. They are all based on the application of CSM cases. The principle is similar: these systems are all connected to the building's surroundings through an external air channel. Through this air channel an intake of cold air is performed which is then distributed over the CSM cases. As a result, the temperature of the cases decreases and in that way, cold is stored. When the room temperature raises again during the day due to internal or external loads, warm air rises up and is transferred through the cold CSM cases which is then cooled. The resulting air-conditioning in the offices is thus maintained by the transfer of cool air from the CSM cases.

As an example, the air-conditioning is performed in a conference room at the premises of matino, an important automotive supplier.
