Ice Accumulator/Storage

An ice accumulator is a tank where ice can be accumulated during one period (for example, in winter), stored and then thawed and used during another (other seasons).

Ice accumulator can be used in where the cooling effect demand varies during the day a smaller chiller can be used. As a result the initial cost of cooling equipment can be reduced considerably. It can also be used for purchase energy during the night or off-peak hours. In many countries this means that it can be obtained at a lower price.

Ice accumulator is proved to be an increasingly worthwhile investment. There are two main applications for ice accumulators: air conditioning and industry. Especially in industry, the cooling demand is often variable, for example in a dairy where the milk will be brought in the morning. For this aim, icy water is being used to cool milk with the help of JeoTes™ PHE.
