Ice bank Machine
Ice bank system is a technology that turn water into ice or cold water during the night when the cost of electricity consumption is low. This ice or cold water is stored and used to cool liquid during the day when the cost of electricity consumption is high. The chiller is off during the day. Low temperature during the night makes cooling more efficient than the day and this reduces energy consumption.
This technology allows us to use smaller chiller , which reduce the initial cost of equipment. Power consumption during off-peak reduces power consumption.
Pillow plates evaporators were manufactured for the first time in Iran by Sard Joush Rad company. This system has been replaced the coil system and due to the lack of defects in coil systems, it has longer service life and a better efficiency.
Ice bank consist of some pillow plates formed both sides, which is located in a tank .Ice bank tanks can be made with capacities of several liters to tens of thousands of liters. The water that is in the tank is freezed or cold during the night during off-peak hours and then it is used during the day when the chiller is off and cools the liquids.
Advantages Ice bank Machine
Reducing electricity consumption due to non-consumption during peak hours .
Reducing that initial cost of equipment due to the use of lower capacity chiller.
Suitable design for different applications .
Great solution for storing refrigerating energy
Technical Specifications Ice Bank
Ice bank has a storage capacity of mor than KWh. The formation of ice on each side of the plates can be reached up to 50 mm.
Ice bank tanks can be made with capacities of several liters to tens of thousands of liters
Almost all refrigerants such as R22, Co2, R717, Glycone, … can be used in this system.
304 and 316 stainless steel sheets are used in making pillow plates.
Pillow plates can withstand 45 Bar pressure and 300 degrees.
Comparison of pillow plates system with coil system
In older system, a coil system was used instead of pillow plates. These two systems are different from each other.
Improved control due to low volume of refrigerant.
Use less materials in manufacturing evaporators with ideal efficiency .
Increased heat transfer level compared to coil system.
Employ less space with higher efficiency.
Stainlessness of steel compared to copper tube .
Formation of ice layer on the sides of the plates with a thickness of 50 mm.
Less maintenance cost
equipped with compressors, condensers, and other electrical and cooling equipment
