Slurry ice based cooling systems.

Author(s) : URE Z.


The cooling capacity of slurry ice can be four to six times higher than that of conventional chilled water, depending on the ice fraction. The nature of the binary (crystal) ice formation allows end users to pump the ice and there are many slurry ice-based cooling systems operating around the world. Most air conditioning installations are based on ice storage, where the warm return water is used to melt the ice when required. Slurry ice is also circulated in close loop distribution systems directly for process and product chilling applications. The paper investigates the advantages and disadvantages of using slurry ice cooling systems.
