- In order to investigate the feasibility of a direct ice slurry transporting system
for the purpose of district cooling, a case study of field application is performed. The research
aims include the field measurement of ice packing factor, the performance of coldness delivery,
and the branching characteristics of ice slurry. Two representative types of pipe branch are
dealt with in this work. For the slurry flow with ice volume fraction of 0.16 or less, the pipe
blocking due to aggregation is not observed. Based on the time-wise variation of temperature
in the storage tank, a calculating method of ice packing factor is newly developed, which
seems to be useful when the brine concentration is unknown. It is confirmed that the mass
flow rate of ice slurry per unit cooling load is markedly reduced with increasing the ice content.
The pumping power also decreases, but remains unchanged for high ice fractions. The
distribution of ice particle before and after branching shows a good uniformity within the
range of 5% difference, but yields a unique trend depending on the flow rate.
