The effects of storing heat excess in a stone battery in a horticultural premise
Faculty of Production and Power Engineering, University of Agriculture in Krakow, Poland
This work presents the results of research connected with the flow of air through a stone battery. The research was carried out in a foil tunnel with a four-section stone battery. The battery deposit consisted of porphyry stone of 30 – 63mm granulation. The process of inlet from the inside of a tunnel to a battery (manager using an algorithm) enabled the unbundling of heat storing cycle and the cycle of delivering the stored heat to the inside of the tunnel. The amount of heat and exchanged mass was described (in relation to the unitary surface and a particular cycle). Correlational equations were formed for the found values and they enable the calculation of a unitary heat stream and the masses of stone battery exchanged cycles.
