Besides the conventional secondary fluids water, ice-water and brine, binary ice is being used more and more. Binary ice is a suspension of smallest ice crystals in a water solution. It is produced in a capacity range up to 500 kilowatts and for temperatures between -4 and -40 deg C with the Flo-Ice method, and for capacities between 150 kilowatts and 3 megawatts and with a temperature of -0.5 deg C with the vacuum method. Based on the special physical properties of binary ice, a plant was calculated as an example and compared with a conventional plant.
