SaltX Technology has developed a selection of salts for applications in numerous industries. The salts deliver temperatures in a range from -30°C to 550°C. In combination with different matrix technologies, the salts can be used equally efficiently in quantities ranging from a teaspoon to hundreds of thousands of tons.
We constantly develop new salts, nano-coating materials, heat exchangers, reactors, and more. If you are interested to learn more about the coefficient of performance, power flux, density, and other characteristics of our salts – join SaltX Labs Forum.
All our salts are charged and deliver temperature difference (delta T, or ΔT). Here you can see a standardised chart of temperatures for charging and discharging our salts at 15°C ambient temperature. If you are interested in cooling effects or different ambient temperatures – check the detailed information in the SaltX Labs Forum.
SaltX salts are placed in matrices. Matrix provides a way to stack salt so that it has the
best surface available for a thermochemical reaction to occur, in other words – to store energy.
We recommend different matrices based on the purpose, scale, and other parameters of the application. Currently we are using three matrix technologies.
Liquid matrix is a system setup when salts are suspended in a refrigerant solution. They are pumped through the reactor and condenser to create the most optimal heat exchanger construction.
Solid matrix is a system setup when salts are permanently placed on a 3D structure inside a specific cotton-cellulose material. The reaction occurs by moving the water vapor. Being a pressurized system the speed of the reaction is exceptionally fast.
Transient state is a system setup when salt is free to move. In such cases the salt is moved from the reactor to the condenser, being mixed with water on its way. This solution is usually suggested for industrial scale applications.
Energy storage is essential for a successful integration of renewable energy into electricity networks. It’s also important for consumers who need reliable electricity and heat supply at a lower cost. However, heat energy requirements are often underestimated. So it’s worth pointing out that the need for global thermal energy are larger than transport or electricity; in particular, industries with processing, manufacturing and green house growing of food. The demand for clean carbon free energy is getting increasingly bigger within the industry.
The nano-coated salt has a very high energy density, allowing a compact solution for energy storage. This enables a smooth and simple integration into existing facilities.
