Thermophysical Properties of Potassium Fluoride Tetrahydrate from (243 to 348) K

In this study, potassium tetrahydrate is being considered as a strong thermal energy storage material. Potassium tetrahydrate possess a low melting temperature and displays a large specific and volumetric enthalpy of fusion; all properties desirable of a thermal energy storage material. At temperatures ranging from 243 to 348 K, both solid and liquid potassium tetrahydrate were tested. The results obtained were then compared to two other potential thermal energy storage materials, with ...

Thermophysical properties of lithium nitrate trihydrate from (253 to 353) K

Lithium nitrate trihydrate (LiNO3·3H2O) has many traits that are desirable for thermal energy storage (TES) materials. This study tests the thermophysical properties of LiNO3·3H2O between 253-353 K in comparison to effective TES materials: water and paraffin. A TPS system measured the thermal conductivity of the solid LiNO3·3H2O samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that LiNO3·3H2O had a higher ...
