Informal Barbecue at the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Laboratory

Enjoy barbecued food and drinks – some of them with PCM – in a relaxing atmosphere just outside the refrigeration and air conditioning lab, while your staff give you an insight to our experimental set-ups in the area of ice slurry production, ice crystal growth, adsorption heat pumps and fluid dynamics, combined heat and power production. For participants of the working group meeting onThursday afternoon, separate guided visits to the solar cooling plant will be available.

Technical Tour

A technical tour will be organized during the conference featuring ice slurry and PCM installations and research.

The participants can select between:

  • Ice Slurry plant Mensa Adenauerring
    Visit a 80 kW ice slurry system in the central kitchen of the KIT, where over 90 cooling sites are chilled with ice slurry and freezer rooms (LT) are cooled by cascaded CO2 systems. These eight CO2 systems reject their condenser heat to the ice slurry loop. A 40 m³ ice slurry storage vessel allows load shifting from day to night time. The primary refrigerant in the ice slurry plant is propane (R290).

  • Solar cooling plant
    Visit the world’s first solar cooling plant with water as the sole working fluid in all parts of the system. 400 m² solar absorbers (vacuum tubes) produce steam which is used in an ejector refrigeration system. 200 kW of solar heat thus produce 100 kW cooling, using 16 kW of electricity. The system utilizes 2 PCM storage systems: one on the hot side with polyethylene and one on the cold side using a paraffin water emulsion.
      
  • Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Lab (limited number of participants – offered to those leaving early Friday afternoon)
    See lots of different experimental set-ups in the area of ice slurry production, ice crystal growth, adsorption heat pumps and fluid dynamics, combined heat and power production. Visiting all these experiments will also be possible during the barbecue Friday afternoon.
    This technical visit is intended for those leaving early on Friday afternoon, all others will have the opportunity to see the lab during the informal barbecue.

  • Working group meeting for members
    Participate in the work of the IIR Phase-Change Materials and Slurries for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning working group. Technical visits “solar cooling plant” and “Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Lab” will be available for working group meeting participants Friday afternoon during the barbecue.

     

Accompanying persons’ program

An interesting tour program will be organized for spouses:

  • Wednesday - Guided Tour
    Themed guided tour of Karlsruhe

  • Thursday - Bus Tour "Black Forest Excursion"
    Take a day trip and discover the wonderfully quaint and picturesque Black Forest. Starting in Karlsruhe with a short motorway drive to Offenburg, the tour then enters the Kinzig Valley where a short stop will be taken in Gengenbach with its rural tranquility and quaint half-timber houses. The journey then continues to Wolfach to the famous Dorotheenhütte glass factory. Here you will be able to look over the shoulder of the glass blowers and visit the glass museum. The village of Gutach is next on the agenda and a visit to the Vogtsbauernhof (a historically constructed Black Forest village). Lunch will be enjoyed here in the museum’s country inn followed by a tour of the open-air museum. The next stop is the village of Triberg and a visit to the House of 1000 Clocks.
      
  • Friday - Time to explore
    Time to explore the city or join one of the public guided tours run by the tourist information.



All activities are included in fee for accompanying person. Minimum number of participants required.
