With fluctuating energy prices, Loma Linda University searched for a cooling solution that would benefit the sprawling campus. Three different thermal energy storage systems were analyzed to find the best fit.
Some thermal storage media are familiar to most
of us, but what about gravel? Or lake water? See how those can work in the
right environments, and tuck this away as a general refresher on thermal
storage concepts and options for use in hospitals, data centers, and elsewhere.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned. Read more in April issue
