Ice Qube’s heat exchangers provide 75% or more energy savings per Btu/h or Watt when compared to vapor compression cooling systems all while offering fewer moving parts for increased reliability and durability at a lower cost. This further translates into a shorter return on investment (ROI), energy savings over the life of the product may provide a 100% ROI when compared to other types of cooling technologies.
Thermodynamic technology eliminates the need for refrigerants to transfer (or absorb, or process) heat, this technology is an in-house exclusive to Ice Qube and known as Multi Surface Cold Core Technology (MSCCT). MSCCT protects the environment while increasing efficiency and reliability. The environment benefits from Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), Zero Global Warming Potential (GWP), and Zero possibility of fluid leakage resulting in loss of cooling capacity. MSCCT allows for increased performance with a constant gradient heat transfer based on the scientific Kelvin (°K) temperature differential by utilizing both conductive and convective methods of heat transfer. Conventional style heat exchangers utilize heat pipe and/or kinetic like systems, further translated to fin, tube, and refrigerant to make heat transfer to the air. This means that the heat must transfer through three mediums before it transfers the heat which makes the heat transfer slower and less efficient. This technology was utilized in Ice Qube’s heat exchangers back in 2000, after developing our more efficient and reliable MSCCT, we left the conventional methods behind.
Ice Qube’s uniquely closed loop direct air to MSCCT uses only one medium to transfer heat which makes the heat transfer out of the enclosure much faster and more efficient. Utilization of our closed loop design maintains application NEMA or IP integrity protecting your sensitive equipment from contaminants in the surrounding atmosphere. Ice Qube offers both cross flow and counter flow designs, ranging from 5.7 to 105.5 Watts/°F (10.3 to 189.9 Watts/°C) of closed-loop cooling capacity.
Closed-loop cooling is the process of taking heated air into the heat exchanger by a powerful blower/fan where heat is removed as it passes through the heat exchanger. The air is then recirculated back into the enclosure/application. This process of cooling maintains the NEMA integrity of the enclosure/application.
*All of Ice Qube’s products are independent agency tested, listed, and/or certified. Before our products are sent out for testing at independent agencies, Ice Qube utilizes our multiple in-house testing chambers. Our in-house testing chambers ensure that all our products meet and/or exceed independent agency testing standards before independent agencies verify all testing.
