ELIMINATE DIESEL GENERATOR FOR POWER BACKUP OF YOUR REFRIGERATION SYSTEM


Our product can plug into any refrigeration device and convert it into a thermal energy storage system such that it can operate during power outages without the need of dirty diesel generators or expensive electric batteries. When power is available, its smart controller runs your refrigeration system and stores cold produced by your refrigeration system in a low cost and energy dense phase change media such as ice. This stored thermal energy is automatically deployed during a power outage scenario, without any interruption or user action. It doesnt jeopardize any functionality of your refrigeration system, including that of your remote controller. The cold air is delivered in the same manner it was being delivered earlier, and no retraining of your staff is needed. Thanks to this patent pending technology, you can eliminate diesel generators and realize significant operational savings.

Products


Cold Storage

Most of the developing world in general and India in particular, witnesses 20-30% food wastage due to unreliable electric grid and higher operational cost of cold storage units during power outages. This essentially leads to small farmers not using any cold storage for their produce. Indian government is promoting solar integrated cold storage units but absence of cost effective energy storage limit its viability. We have developed a modular cold storage system that can provide round the clock cooling even in locations that average only six hours of power. Our cold storage system can also provide faster ramp down time and are the most affordable way to provide backup power.

Milk Cooling

Refrigeration is essential to maintain the quality of the milk and prevent bacterial growth. Due to unreliable power at the village level where most of the milk is produced, dairies have to rely upon dirty and expensive diesel generators to operate the refrigeration equipment. Inficold’s thermal energy storage integrated milk cooling units can provide cooling during the power outages and can also provide significantly faster cooling than traditional bulk milk coolers. This unique product can also be retrofitted with an existing bulk milk cooler.

Air Conditioners

During the peak summer, as the temperature rises, so does the load on the grid, resulting in power outages right when you need that AC the most! Inficold’s product integrated with a 1-10 T AC can be charged during the time when power is available and provide pristine cooling and humidity control during the power outage. In addition to uninterrupted cooling, this system can also provide cooling boost to quickly bring down the temperature of a room.
