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 ...

A newly composed paraffin encapsulated prototype roof structure for efficient thermal management in hot climate

This study highlights the ongoing search for sustainable and thermally suitable phase-change materials (PCMs), for hot weather building climates, such as Iraq. This new PCM must have an extraordinary heat and cold retention ability. Building industries are interested in using paraffin’s in their roofing materials, because of their thermo-physical properties, their profitability to save on electricity and HVAC (heating-ventilating air conditioning) systems, their local abundance, as well as their ...

Effects of melting temperature and the presence of internal fins on the performance of a phase change material (PCM)-based heat sink

Two organic phase change materials (PCMs) were investigated to determine their effects on the thermal management capabilities of electronics. The thermo-physical properties of n-eicosane and 1-hexadecanol were determined experimentally, and the two PCMs were then added to unfinned, and finned heat sinks. It was determined that a PCM with a high melting point is able to increase the time of protection from overheating; however, it was also determined that if ...

Thermal property measurement and heat storage analysis of LiNO3/KCl – expanded graphite composite phase change material

A novel composite phase change material (PCM) composed of LiNO3/KCl with expanded graphite (EG) as a filler was prepared and investigated to determine if it had potential for use in solar energy storage applications. The addition of the expanded graphite did not significantly alter the melting temperature in comparison with the eutectic LiNO3/KCl PCM; however, the latent heat of fusion did significantly decrease with increasing mass fractions of ...

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 ...
