PCM based Cold Battery
Thermal Backup for Retail Freezers
Retail freezers nationwide are equipped with two compressors each operating at -20°F or below to maintain ice cream below zero. During warm seasons, there is an increased cooling requirement that overloads the compressors causing one of them to fail.
- The freezer is not able to maintain the ice cream frozen
- The risk of second compressor failure increases due to excessive loads
- The cost of purchasing and installing a new compressor overnight is very expensive
- Moving ice cream to a storage freezer is labor-intensive and cumbersome
RGEES, LLC offers a COLD BATTERY that provides thermal backup for retail freezers. The COLD BATTERY is comprised of savENRG® -15°F Freezer-Packs. These are eutectic plates filled with a phase change material that solidifies and melts at -15°F (-26°C). A large amount of thermal energy is stored and released during phase change while the temperature remains stable between -15°F to 0°F. The quantity of savENRG® -15°F Freezer-Packs is determined on the BTU capacity of the compressor.
The Freezer-Packs are charged to a solid-state in a -20°F flash freezer for 24 hours or more. Once fully charged, they are placed horizontally within the air circulation chamber under the ice cream pans. Freezer-Packs should be cleaned and recharged every 3 to 4 days or earlier.
With the addition of a Cold Battery to a freezer case, it will provide adequate thermal backup to maintain ice cream frozen even if one of the compressors fails. During normal operations, the load on compressors will reduce, which will result in significantly less noise, a reduced cost of compressor maintenance, and a reduced risk of compressor failures.
- Economical & safe thermal backup
- Reduction in repair and maintenance costs
- Significant energy savings
- Increased sales due to minimal equipment failure
- Minimizes compressor loss
- Life: more than 5 years
Super cold and efficient
They work amazing and are much better than buying dry ice all the time!

Highly Recommended as Thermal Backup!
The Cold Battery is extremely easy to handle in my Cold Stone Creamery, and when charged in the blast at -25 degrees it essentially acts as dry ice that can be used over and over again. Additionally, summer of 2016 was the first summer when my compressor worked without failure! That’s the savings of few thousand already!
