Latent heat storage system
CRISTOPIA STL (STorage of Latent heat) technology is widely used in Europe, Asia and North America. It consists of nodules used to store the cooling energy produced by water chillers.
The energy is primarily stored at nighttime, when cooling demand is lower, and redelivered during the day when greater cooling capacity is needed.
Furthermore, due to the lower temperatures when energy is stored at night, the chillers operate more efficiently. Demand on the chillers is thus better balanced between day and night, which enables the use of smaller units.
STL storage features a special control and supervision system, Cristo’Control2, which monitors the system’s performance.
