Ice Thermal Storage

Energy prices are uncertain, but trends are not. With even higher energy costs on the horizon, owners should be making plans to mitigate the impact on operating expenses. An obvious place to start is with one of the biggest energy consumers in the building: the cooling system. Adding thermal energy storage to an HVAC system can reduce energy costs associated with comfort cooling by shifting equipment operation from high- to low-cost times of day.

Approximately 80 percent of the installed ice storage projects use air-cooled chillers and internal melt modular ice tanks. By limiting the scope to a specific style of chiller, the appropriate type of ice storage system can be readily identified.

CALMAC IceBank® thermal energy storage tanks offer pre-engineered, factory-built reliability with tested, efficient and repeatable performance.

 Ice provides partial system redundancy, minimizing assets to maintain.
