The physical principle of magnetic cooling


Magnetic Refrigeration is based on the magneto-caloric effect (MCE). The MCE implies that the temperature of suitable materials (Magneto-caloric materials) increases under the effect of a magnetic field and decreases when it is no longer subjected to this field. The effect is reversible and almost instantaneous.

The so-called “Curie” temperature is the temperature at which this effect is the strongest. It depends on the properties of each material. The power generated by the system depends on the selection of materials, their mass and their shape.

Ubiblue is an expert at selecting the proper materials for each application.

In a magnetic refrigeration system, a rotating magnetic field applies a series of magnetization-demagnetization to the magnetocaloric material. The cycles create a temperature gradient in the material. A rapid succession of these cycles produces the final, stabilized hot and cold temperature in the system.

An environmentally friendly water-based fluid transfers heat between the cold and hot sources. Similar to a heat pump process, magnetic cooling can be adapted to all types of refrigeration and HVAC systems.
