PCM Coupled Refrigenration System (PCRS)

RuhrTech’s PCM (Phase Change Material) coupling system is expertly designed to ensure an even distribution of PCM throughout your cold storage space. This enables the PCM to harness the stored cold energy during off-peak electricity hours, thus effectively maintaining an optimal temperature of your cold storage during peak electricity hours, resulting in an impressive 50% reduction in electricity costs.

During the night, when refrigeration units predominantly operate, our PCM coupling system enhances their efficiency by more than 25%, extending their lifespan by 1.5 times.

Throughout the day, the PCM gradually melts and efficiently absorbs 95% of the thermal load from the cold storage's envelope structure. This minimizes the frequency of refrigeration unit startups, drastically decreasing their operating time during the day and transferring high-cost electricity loads to off-peak hours.

Our PCM coupling system is flexible, reliable, and boasts a prolonged service life, while remaining easy to maintain. Additionally, it doesn't take up any valuable space that is designated for your goods, ensuring that their temperature safety is always guaranteed.
