Binary ice as a secondary refrigerant.

Author(s) : PAUL J.


Binary ice is an efficient and elegant way to realize indirect cooling. The high performance fluid consists of minute ice crystals in an aqueous solution and is superior to brine cooling and at least as efficient as boiling refrigerant. Therefore numerous applications exist where binary ice is the problem of refrigerants. However, aspects of heat exchanger design and performance have to be taken into account in order to obtain maximum benefit.
