Problems with overheating and unstable temperature of industrial equipment are the reasons for generating significant costs that for companies. Solving the problems related to heat removal is a challenge in modern industry. Phase change materials are the solution to these challenges (PCM). These substances can accumulate and release large amounts of thermal energy during the phase change transition. The value of the phase transition enthalpy determines the energy storage capacity. The paper presents the results of phase transitions of selected materials. The measurements were carried out on a stand for testing phase change materials. The laboratory stand made it possible to determine the thermodynamic parameters of the phase transition. The substances analysed are kinds of paraffin of different chemical composition. Due to the diversity of substances, it is possible to analyse the influence of the chemical composition on possible uses in industrial applications for energy storage.
