The ultimate in energy efficiency

Image of the outside of an ice builderA Thermal Energy Store uses ice banks to generate chilled water that is then pumped through a plate heat exchanger or an air conditioning system. Run on the same principal as the ice builder used in the dairy farming industry, the Thermal Energy Store is the ultimate cooling solution for a number of different applications, including air conditioning, process cooling in food production, plastic moulding machines and laser cutting.

A Thermal Energy Store offers the following benefits:

  • Load shifting and levelling of electricity supplies;
  • Maximum use of off-peak electricity to achieve lowest possible running costs;
  • The use of smaller and less complicated condensing units therefore reducing maintenance and running costs.
