Revolutionizing Cold Storage and HVAC Systems with Tan90Thermal Advanced Phase Change Materials

by | Jul 4, 2024


With technology rapidly advancing and environmental concerns growing, finding sustainable and efficient cooling solutions is more important than ever. Traditional cold storage and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems are necessary but often lack energy efficiency and have a significant environmental impact. Tan90Thermal aims to change this with their innovative use of advanced phase change materials (PCMs). By integrating PCMs into these systems, Tan90Thermal offers a more efficient and sustainable way to manage cooling.

The Challenge of Traditional Cooling Systems

Traditional cold storage and HVAC systems are essential in sectors like food preservation, pharmaceuticals, and building climate control. However, they have several significant challenges:

High Energy Consumption:

These systems use a lot of energy, leading to high costs and increased greenhouse gas emissions, which is a big issue with climate change.

Inconsistent Temperature Regulation:

Keeping temperatures stable in large storage areas or big buildings can be tough. Fluctuations can spoil stored goods and make indoor environments uncomfortable.

High Infrastructure and Maintenance Costs:

Setting up and maintaining traditional cooling systems is expensive. This can be a significant hurdle for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and adds to overall operational costs.

What Are Phase Change Materials (PCMs)?

Phase change materials absorb and release thermal energy as they melt and freeze. When a PCM melts, it absorbs a lot of heat without a big temperature increase. When it solidifies, it releases this stored heat. This makes PCMs excellent for managing temperatures efficiently.

Tan90Thermal’s Advanced PCMs: A Game Changer

Tan90Thermal uses PCMs to create advanced cooling solutions that overcome the limitations of traditional systems. Here’s how their PCMs are changing the game:

Energy Efficiency

Lower Energy Use:

PCMs store and release thermal energy, helping to keep temperatures stable with less energy. This reduces the load on cooling systems, cutting energy use and costs.

Load Shifting:

PCMs can store thermal energy during low-demand times (like nighttime) and release it during high-demand times (like daytime). This helps balance energy use and reduce electricity costs.

Reduced Compressor Use:

In HVAC systems, PCMs can reduce how often compressors need to run, saving energy and extending the system’s life.

Enhanced Temperature Regulation

PCMs help keep temperatures stable by absorbing excess heat when it’s too warm and releasing heat when it’s too cold. This is crucial for both cold storage and HVAC systems.

Cold Storage:

Keeping a consistent temperature is vital to prevent spoilage of perishable goods. PCMs minimize temperature fluctuations, reducing spoilage and extending product shelf life.

HVAC Systems:

For buildings, stable indoor temperatures improve comfort and safety. PCMs help maintain a consistent climate, enhancing comfort and reducing the risk of overheating or overcooling.


Using PCMs can lead to significant cost savings over time. While initial costs may be higher, long-term savings on energy and maintenance make up for it.

Lower Operational Costs:

PCMs reduce energy consumption and maintenance needs, lowering overall operational costs, which is attractive to businesses looking to save money.

Reduced Infrastructure Costs:

With PCMs, systems can be smaller and more efficient, reducing the need for extensive and expensive infrastructure.

Real-World Applications and Success Stories

Tan90Thermal’s advanced PCMs are not just theoretical. Real-world applications show their effectiveness in revolutionizing cold storage and HVAC systems.

Food Preservation

A major food processing company in Europe used Tan90Thermal’s PCM technology to improve its cold storage. The result was a 25% reduction in energy use and a 20% decrease in product spoilage. They also saw improved product quality and longer shelf life, leading to higher customer satisfaction and reduced waste.

Pharmaceutical Storage

In the pharmaceutical industry, maintaining the cold chain is crucial. A pharmaceutical distributor in Asia implemented Tan90Thermal’s PCMs in its storage and transportation systems, ensuring consistent temperatures and reducing energy costs by 30%. This significantly improved the reliability of their cold chain, ensuring product safety and effectiveness.

Building HVAC Systems

A large commercial building in North America integrated Tan90Thermal’s PCMs into its HVAC system, resulting in a 20% reduction in energy use and better indoor climate control. This improved occupant comfort and enhanced the building’s energy efficiency, contributing to sustainability goals.

The Future of Cooling Solutions with Tan90Thermal

As the world faces climate change and rising energy costs, the demand for innovative, sustainable cooling solutions will grow. Tan90Thermal’s advanced PCMs are a big step forward in meeting these challenges. Here’s what the future might look like:

Integration with Renewable Energy Sources

PCMs can work with renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. By storing excess thermal energy during peak production times, PCMs can help balance supply and demand, making renewable energy more viable.

Smart Cooling Systems

The future of cooling lies in smart systems that adapt to changing conditions. Tan90Thermal is exploring integrating IoT (Internet of Things) technologies with its PCM solutions to create intelligent cooling systems. These systems can monitor and adjust temperature settings in real-time, optimizing energy use and performance.

Expanding Access to Developing Regions

In developing regions, reliable and affordable cooling solutions are often lacking. Tan90Thermal’s PCMs offer a viable solution that can be adapted to various contexts. Partnerships with governments, NGOs, and international organizations can help expand access to this critical technology.


Tan90Thermal’s advanced phase change materials are set to revolutionize the cold storage and HVAC industries. Offering solutions that are more energy-efficient, cost-effective, and capable of maintaining consistent temperatures, Tan90Thermal addresses the challenges of traditional cooling systems. Real-world applications in food preservation, pharmaceutical storage, and building climate control highlight the transformative potential of this technology.
