The expertise to tailor-make your cooling solution
CIAT supports consulting engineers by customizing the hydraulic layout for each project: application, operating conditions and specific customer needs. When necessary, complementary technologies such as free cooling or energy recovery are integrated.
CIAT engineers have unique and proven expertise, including in-depth knowledge of dual cooling and automation. The team collaborates closely with Sophia-Antipolis, Europe’s largest technology park and is involved in several European research and innovation projects.
CIAT has unique expertise in Phase Change Materials (PCM) based on over 30 years of Research & Development in partnership with universities and technical centers in Europe. This Thermal Energy Storage (TES) solution by latent heat allows TEWI* benefits from 15% to 40%**.
Smart energy use for operational optimization
Reduced operating costs
By storing thermal energy during the night and releasing it during the day, the Thermal Energy Storage system consumes electricity at lowest prices and avoids peak times. By spreading thermal energy production over 24 hours, this solution can reduce chiller capacity by 30 to 70%***.
By shutting down electricity-hungry energy producers on demand and forcing the discharge of the system, the TES system regulates equipment to respond to peak electricity alerts on the power grid. This solution can also be combined with renewable energy (wind turbines, photovoltaics).
CIAT expert engineers advise and support you daily. Thanks to regular monitoring and follow-up you can optimize the operation of your cooling installation. CIAT also offers additional services (training, on-site intervention, trending…) throughout the lifecycle of your installation.
