CONCRETCOOL

CONCRETCOOL – a symbiosis between component temperature control and supply air provides comfort with high energy efficiency owing to maximum utilisation of free cooling. Almost completely invisible introduction of supply air. Above-average customer satisfaction.

The strengths of CONCRETCOOL

Energy

High energy savings thanks to maximum utilisation of free cooling and a total heat recovery rate of > 95%.

Architecture

Air ducts are not visible in the room: air diffusers are integrated unobtrusively into the concrete ceiling or corridor Partition.

Technology

The cooling medium is air, so there is no risk of it freezing on construction sites in winter and drilling into pipes does not lead to water damage.

Function

Cooling tubes, made of aluminium with good thermal conductivity and with diameters of 60 or 80 mm, are cast into concrete ceilings in a grid. The internal surface is ribbed to improve heat transfer. The supply air is not fed directly to the rooms: it first flows through the cooling tubes within the concrete ceilings. This warms the cold supply air to approximately ceiling temperature. The necessary heat is taken from the ceiling. This withdrawal of heat also serves for component cooling. This supply air is then fed to the room through Kiefer air diffusers, meeting the hygiene requirement for fresh air. An outlet temperature of approximately 21°C is achieved for the supply air without using a supplementary heater. No primary energy is required. The process is self-regulating and virtually free of variation. The temperature is incredibly stable owing to the high storage capacity of the concrete ceilings. Heat recovery by the ventilation system is increased to over 95% by the addition of the CONCRETCOOL system. As a result, the requirements set out in the German Renewable Energies Act are exceeded.
