ABSTRACT

In the study of cold storage, specific temperature and humidity range is required for properly storage of any food. Present cold storage capacity in India is inadequate. So to develop integrated cold chain facilities across the country is very essential. In cold storage, Insulation is used to reduce heat transfer so it is necessary to analyse and calculate heat transfer rate with temperature distribution. Steady state thermal analysis gives the correct values of the temperature which is varying with the time. We can use various types of insulating materials such as EPS, PUF, XPS, Phenolic foam, Mineral wool, Bonded fibre glass etc. but the selecting correct material is important. In this paper I have calculated the heat transfer rate and the temperature behaviour for the same object with the different materials (like EPS and PUF). Though in cold storage we see various types of insulating materials which are having different characteristics but for better explanation, methodology has been validated against the actual data obtained from Penguin cold storage situated in Pune, India Also the attempt has been made to minimize energy consumption of cold store by replacing the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) with Poly-urethane Foam (PUF) insulation. Keywords: Cold storage refrigeration plant, Steady state thermal analysis, cold storage insulation, EPS, PUF
