A mixture for the storage of heat energy utilizing a heat of fusion material includes sodium sulfate decahydrate, borax as a nucleating agent, and hydrous magnesium aluminum silicate (attapulgus clay) as a homogenizing agent. This composition maintains the salt-hydrate in suspension during repeated heating and cooling cycles. A method is also disclosed for preparing the mixture which includes the steps of mixing water with the attapulgus clay, adding a nucleating agent to the initial mixture, and mixing the initial mixture, including the nucleating agent...
A mixture for the storage of heat energy utilizing the heat of fusion of the composition comprising: a salt-hydrate having a heat of fusion of more than 50 BTU per pound, a nucleating agent, and a thixotropic agent, said thixotropic agent being an attapulgite-type clay substance that has lath-like particles. A method of preparing a mixture for the storage of heat energy comprising the steps of: mixing water with an attapulgite-type clay substance having lath-like particles which exhibits thixotropy to form an initial mixture, with said substance disperse...
