As the BocaPCM panels can be stacked up securely to 2.6m (8.5ft) level, therefore, the height of the tank can be built to around 3m (10ft) and the footprint of the tank can be adjusted around this dimension. If the required storage capacity is too large and the design takes in multiple tanks, the tanks can be arranged either in parallel or in serial format to best fit the demand of application and space available. Typically, the depth of the tank is 2.6m with an inside dimension which corresponds to approximately 52 pieces of BocaPCM panels and leave a 150mm headroom in the tank container.
In practical design, Thermal Energy Storage tanks should be placed as close as possible to chillers and loading facilities in order to minimize pipe work, transmission heat loss and pumping energy penalties. If the system requires pressurized tank, a cylindrical tank will be employed to accommodate BocaPCM panels with minimum by-pass. Generally, the tank area could also be used as a car park or a landscape area. Inside a building, tank can be built or installed in the basement area as part of foundation.
Don’t worry. BOCA’ engineers will figure out the most viable, reliable and cost-efficient tank plan for you. Whether the tank is factory prefab or built in site, our engineers and technicians will guide through the whole design and production process. We can also provide blueprint, measurements and relevant specifications of the TES tank if clients want to purchase one from local factories to save transportation costs.
Half of the tank can be buried while exposing the other half to make it a scenery.
Or fully buried to keep the environment clean and tidy.
Tank not necessarily be round, it can be square to fit the space.
Tank can be designed into a "room" inside a floor.
Or built like a rectangular housing with concrete and reinforcement bar.
