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.  

Topics include:

  • Benefits of an ice storage system
  • On-peak versus off-peak
  • Ice storage tank
  • Full storage versus partial storage
  • Ice-making chiller
  • Heat transfer fluid
  • Ethylene glycol versus propylene glycol
  • Common system layouts (small versus large systems)
  • Retrofitting existing systems
  • Control of ice storage systems
