Ice Storage System

Order Number: TRG-TRC019-EN
Price: $16

This clinic focuses on a glycol-based ice storage system, which use an ice-chiller to cool a heat transfer fluid—often a mixture of water and antifreeze, such as glycol—to a temperature below the freezing point of water. This fluid is pumped through an ice storage system tank, causing water inside the tank to freeze. (2005)
