Ray Olsson’s original patent which ClimateWell® acquired when the company was founded in 2001, increased energy density and reduced energy losses, thereby improving overall efficiency.
Göran Bolin’s invention to embed the salt crystals in a three-dimensional structure and use capillary forces to transfer the chemically-bound energy of the salt crystals’ core. This means that moving parts (pumps which consume electricity) are avoided, thereby obtaining a less complex system that is robust, scalable and cost-effective.
Göran Bolin’s invention increases the steam channels to and from the salt crystals’ core, thereby drastically increasing the energy density. In addition, NCS prevents or reduces corrosion in the component.
