Thermophysical characterization of sorption TCM
MetadataShow full item record
Thermochemical materials (TCM) are proposed for thermal energy storage as one of the future options to achieve lower energy consumption in buildings and other industrial applications, as well as to store energy from solar energy. In this study, the thermophysical properties of two TCM, CaCl2 and zeolite, are determined with TGA and DSC and samples are cycled 4 times with TGA. Results show that the material with the highest energy density is the salt, CaCl2. Moreover, both materials under study present noble cyclability.
