Magnetic refrigeration is based on the Magnetocaloric Effect (MCE). The MCE implies that the temperature of suitable materials (Magnetocaloric Materials, MCM) increases when they are exposed to a magnetic field and decreases when they are removed from it, that is, the effect is reversible and almost instantaneous.
The temperature with the strongest effect (the Curie temperature) depends on the properties of every material. The power generated by the system depends on the type of materials and their characteristics (mass and shape).
Cooltech Applications was founded in 2003 with the mission to make Magnetic Refrigeration the new standard in the cooling industry by productizing and commercializing refrigeration systems based on magnetic cooling.
After more than 10 years of extensive and in-depth research in diverse technological fields as magnetism, hydraulics, thermal mechanics and chemistry, Cooltech Applications has developed a unique cleantech solution, based on the 19th century discovery of magnetocaloric effect. The solution replaces existing compressors using polluting refrigerant gases with a compression-less, gas-free, energy efficient, and environment friendly appliance.
Cooltech Applications is the first company in the world to commercialize Magnetic Refrigeration Products. The first Magnetic Refrigeration System introduced by Cooltech Applications primarily addresses the commercial refrigeration market (plug-ins display cases for stores, kitchen equipment, beverage coolers, medical refrigerators...).
