A lot of questions have been asked about this technology.
Here we hope to answer some of our most frequently asked questions.
If we don't have an answer for your question on our F.A.Q., please set a meeting with us below.
We have several different systems that can be integrated depending on the system that it needs to be integrated into for example: • The classical backnet type of protocol. • We have Modbus for the automotive industry.
Our mixtures are developed to have a capacity to retain more than 80% to 85% of their initial capacity after 15,000 cycles. So typically if you’re using the full system once or twice a day you’re looking at a lifespan of 20 to 41 years. • Example: If you have one cycle a day, that’s over 41 years with no degradation or change. If you have two cycles a day that’s 20 to 21 years.
They start from 3,000 to 4,000 pounds. The biggest is about 45,000 pounds.
The controls will have an integration with the building management system (BMS) that can talk and exchange information through the software side. If some adjustments do need to be made it will depend on how large those variations are but the flexibility can accommodate most changes. There is also training for the engineers and internal team to understand how everything works and how to make small adjustments based on productivity increase or decrease or if there need to be big changes they will know when to let us know as well.
While it’s not a catalog, we do have spec sheets for the different components. The process is divided into three different phases, the first of which is the qualification phase which after working closely together with the project specs would create its own custom catalog for that specific project.
The integrated BMS system will detect if there were any problems. Problems that could arise that would need to be addressed would be water contamination, or electric supply panels. However ongoing maintenance would not be necessary as everything is validated before installation. One year of service is a good idea but not mandatory.
Yes there are several cases of smaller installs that have been cost effective for those projects. However, anything below 100 Kilowatts being cost effective would largely start to be based on cost of energy, how much energy is being used, location, and in general, more factors than a larger scale installation would need to be considered.
Inside the system we are using liquid, water being the first mainly for lower temps. Beyond that it can be used with thermal oil or a glycol mixture, or air coils, it’s not a restriction but water would be the first best choice.
If we need to deal with air, we will have air coils that will just carry the heat from the air to the water or liquid in the TESS.
Both are feasible, it largely depends on the specifics of the project.
Correct they're modular so that gives a lot of flexibility on the planning of the projects.
