Improvement of the thermal performance of commercial freezers using phase change materials (PCM)
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this work is to improve the thermal performance of commercial freezers using phase change materials (PCM) and the prove the importance of the correct PCM selection (melting temperature) for each application. To do this a vertical freezer with and without macro encapsulation PCM are used to assess the benefits of using PCM in minimizing temperature fluctuations and to maintain at the lowest possible temperature the freezer under heat of losses.
