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

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 ...

Preparation and thermal characterization of expanded graphite/paraffin composite phase change material

Expanded graphite (EG)/paraffin composite materials were prepared with the weight % of EG varying from 0 to 10%. It was found that the addition of EG to paraffin greatly improved the thermal conductivity of the material. The melting and freezing points of the PCM were compared to ...
