Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire method measured the apparent thermal conductivities of the nitrates and nitrates/EG mixtures. Results showed that nitrates/EG mixture PCMs with the highest concentrations of ...

Specific Heat Measurements with the Thermal Constants Analyser

This work introduces a direct method for measuring the specific heat of solids, using the Transient Plane Source Technique (TPS). To begin, a sample is placed into a thermally conductive holder, surrounded by a thermally insulating material. A thermally conductive sample holder is used, to limit the time it takes to achieve a temperature equilibrium between the holder and the sensor. Insulating the sample holder is to minimize heat loss ...
