Cooltech Applications MRS commercial magnetic cooling system

Monday, 08 August, 2016 | Supplied by: Cooltech Applications



Cooltech Applications has launched a commercial magnetic cooling system for its magnetic refrigeration system (MRS) product line. The magnetic cooling system utilises a water coolant instead of a refrigerant gas — a major contributor to climate change — resulting in an eco-friendly solution that consumes minimal energy.

With cooling powers between 200 and 700 W, the product is suitable for a range of applications in commercial refrigeration, including medical refrigerators, display cabinets, beverage dispensers, store plug-ins and wine cellars.

Based on the magnetocaloric effect (MCE), which is the heating or cooling of magnetic material caused by applying a magnetic field to it, the cooling system eliminates the harmful gases that are used in compression-based refrigerators. The magnetic unit operates at low pressure with low rotational speed, virtually eliminating vibrations, cutting noise to less than 35 dB and reducing maintenance costs.

The system is currently in beta testing at three sites in various configurations. A version generating high cooling power — 20 kW and beyond — is under development for industrial applications.
