Abstract [en]

The research on the crystallization process is a fundamental task for the investigation of freezing properties of ice slurry. This paper presents an experimental study on the influence of concentration on essential parameters of the crystallization process for the ice slurry produced from sodium chloride solution using a scraped surface heat exchanger. It was found that the liquid temperature experiences four different segments during the whole crystallization process. This trend keeps accordance with the result from literature and it was used to verify the accuracy of the experiment test. It was also observed that the concentrations of sodium chloride solution have significant effects on several freezing properties of the ice slurry generation. The curves obtained in this paper are useful to predict the freezing point and the solidification time in practice. Additionally, a mathematical correlation between the latent heat and concentration was developed eventually by polynomial fitting the curve gained from experiments. The error between the fitting curves and original experimental data was no more than 5%. Totally, during the ice generation process, it is of great significance that the concentration of brine solution can be adjusted to meet the cooling capacity requirement according to the fitting curves and mathematical correlations obtained in this paper.
