Abstract:

The Natick soldier center has identified the need for maintaining soldier drinking water at a palatable temperature of less than 60 degrees F. Individual pallets of bottled water must be kept cool near feeding and resting areas, but the cooling must be provided independent of an electrical grid. Infinia Corporation proposes a practical design concept for a Stirling pallet chiller that will produce up to 1 refrigeration ton of cooling, and sufficient electricity to run system loads such as heat rejection using JP-8 or diesel fuels. The Stirling Individual Pallet Chiller (SIPC) will operate directly on JP-8 fuel, be HMMWV (High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) towable, and have an acoustic signature of significantly less than 40 dB at 5 meters, making it ideal for remote deployments.
