Applied Research of Cool Storage and Energy Conservation Technology on Cold Storage
The feasibility of the application of cool storage technology in cold storage was discussed and the ice cool storage used in high temperature cold storage, condenser water, cooling room, frozen food store and freezing room was analyzed. Carried on the efficient analysis through a cold storage of Hunan Shaoyang as an example, the result shows that the equipment cost of ice cool storage equipment is 831310.2 Yuan higher than the traditional cold storage and annual operating costs than traditional ice storage refrigeration technology can save 375694.5 Yuan. So it is feasible for the application of cool storage technology in cold storage. But initial investment will be increased inevitably and instead the additional capital can be recovered in about three years through the decrease of electricity consumption.
