The ESS (Energy Saving System) is capable of transferring heat energy through a change of state. During the thermal change process, the media’s temperature remains constant—known as latent heat transfer. Latent heat transfer occurs when the media changes from a solid to liquid or a liquid to solid. The state of the media is monitored by a temperature probe that automatically engages the refrigeration compressor to power on or off according to varying inlet load profiles. Because the ESS is capable of storing and releasing heat energy without a change in temperature, the refrigerant compressor cycles less frequently and saves energy.
The dryer requires fewer components than conventional cycling designs and does not require a cooling media circulation pump, storage tank and glycol to refrigerant heat exchanger. All cooling is accomplished in the 3-in-1 heat exchanger.
The media within the ESS is non-toxic, does not require replacement and maintains its thermal properties regardless of age. In the frozen state the media will not thermally expand, maintaining the long-term integrity of the heat exchanger assembly.
