Paraffin O/W emulsion for cold storage and distribution applications
"Phase Change Slurry (PCS) is a multifunctional fluid consisting of a Phase Change Material (PCM) as dispersed phase and a carried fluid as continuous phase. PCS can store or transfer amounts of thermal energy by using the latent heat capacity of the used PCM. In this paper, paraffin oil-in-water emulsion has been studied as PCS for comfort cooling applications in the temperature range beween 0-20 °C. The heat transfer capacity and the rheological behaviours of a paraffin emulsion have been investigated in test rigs and the results are presented here."
