Revolutionising temperature control: The tank-in-tank heat management system


Trish I R&D Private Limited’s latest creation, the Tank-in-Tank Heat Management System, embodies innovation. Recently granted a patent (No. IN452107) by the Intellectual Property Office, Government of India, this technology is poised to redefine temperature control systems. This patented technology can provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for maintaining data-centres and other industrial temperatures.

The Tank-in-Tank Heat Management System reimagines temperature control, especially in critical data centres and industrial cooling areas. It employs a tank-in-tank configuration at its core, but its impact reaches far beyond its design.

Global need for efficient thermal management
Efficient thermal management is a global concern, transcending borders. Industries worldwide are exploring innovative methods to control temperatures, whether for food preservation, drug storage, or cooling remote data centres. In this context, the Tank-in-Tank Heat Management System stands out as an innovative alternative to current technologies, poised to bring about a significant transformation promising to revolutionise the field.

A closer look at the Tank-in-Tank heat management system
Central to this innovative technology is a tank-in-tank configuration featuring thermally conductive walls and a unique heat-absorbing substance, typically sand. This setup enables exceptional heat transfer and precise temperature control. The system’s efficiency and control are further improved through vacuum insulation, a well-engineered cooling system, and a smart controller. To optimise material wettability between tanks – that is, to enhance the interaction between materials in the tanks, a vibrator ensures precise temperature regulation.

Key features of the innovation

  • Tank-in-Tank configuration: A simple yet ingenious setup that enhances heat transfer and insulation, ensuring precise temperature control.
  • Thermal conductive walls: These walls promote efficient heat exchange, crucial in maintaining stable temperatures.
  • Heat-absorbing material: The system’s versatility arises from using heat-absorbing materials within the tanks, allowing for precise temperature adjustments.
  • Vacuum insulation: External heat transfer is minimised thanks to vacuum insulation, contributing to a stable temperature environment.
  • Coolant system: The coolant system works seamlessly to maintain a consistent and controlled temperature.
  • Smart controller: Real-time temperature monitoring and control are made possible by the integrated smart controller, adding intelligence to the system.

Data centre and industrial cooling market
