Thermal Energy Storage
Rocky Research is a world leader in sorption technology and has numerous patents in this field. While active in the business of conventional sorption as the core lab to UT-Carrier, York International and AAF McQuay in the HVAC field and to several appliance manufacturers, the company developed its own proprietary solid-gas sorption technology in which the absorption and desorption of refrigerant vapor is used to operate a no moving part thermally activated compressor. Unlike conventional sorption systems, the operation can be designed to be independent of g-forces and thereby allows for operation in tilt, acceleration, deceleration and aero-space applications. The unique coordinative complex compound sorption media are capable of storing thermal energy at energy densities far superior to any other rechargeable energy storage means. Rocky Research’s fuel fired sorption systems can be used in mobile environments where electricity is not readily available. The solid-vapor system also can act as a thermal battery where it can be charged and stored indefinitely for future use.
