Sand Battery Results as of 17 January 2024

Sand Battery.

Using a solar vacuum tube filled with:

Sand:

Max temperature without mirror reflectors:

300 F (149 C)

5pm: 148 F (64 C)

Next Morning: 84 F (29 C)

Paraffin:

Max temperature without mirror reflectors:

250 F (121 C)

5pm: 140 F (60 C)

Next Morning: 95 F (35 C)

This test was conducted over a year and sand thermal storage would get hotter, but release heat faster. Paraffin wax was slower to heat up, but slower to release heat. Ultimately a hybrid of the two is the best solution.
