TitusThe EcoCore Phase Change Panel from Tate® is designed to reduce indoor air temperature fluctuations and saves energy.

Tate® has introduced the EcoCore Phase Change Panel, which incorporates the latest advances in micro-encapsulated phase change materials to reduce indoor air temperature fluctuations and save energy. During the peak solar load of the day, the phase change material embedded within the welded steel panel is designed to melt and absorb energy — energy that would otherwise be reflected back into the room as heat or transferred to the airstream.

This stored energy can be held within the panel until cold air during the off hours at night allows the phase change material to resolidify and release the absorbed heat back into the space. Storing energy in this way produces a more stable and comfortable environment during the day while decreasing demands on HVAC systems and reducing energy costs.

The micro-encapsulated phase change materials within EcoCore panels are engineered to change from solid to liquid at 75.2°F. When this occurs, each panel can absorb more than 175 Btuh. This means that in a 10,000-sq-ft facility utilizing 2,250 EcoCore panels, as much as 1-1/2 hours of peak solar loading can be shifted to off peak hours. The EcoCore raised floor panel provides a safe solution for applying phase change material in a building. By embedding the material in cement and then fully encapsulating it in a steel welded shell, the material is protected from the external environment. EcoCore Phase Change Panels are designed for use in office buildings to reduce energy consumption and support sustainability goals. They are particularly useful as an energy-efficient perimeter heating and cooling solution.
