Salt hydrate for application as secondary refrigerant in the air-conditioning system are selected based on the slurry forming according to the evaporator temperature 5°C–12°C. Research development of salt hydrate for application is done in three stages, namely; the study of the properties, flow, and heat transfer characteristics, also applications in air-conditioning systems. The study of the properties of the phase change materials is in the form of latent heat, freezing and melting temperature, thermal stability properties, viscosity, and rate of corrosion. The study of flow and heat transfer characteristics determine the effect of salt hydrates on the pressure drop and heat transfer in a heat exchanger. Studies on the application of the air-conditioning system is made to use a type of cooling room air-handling units and fan coil unit. The results of the researches for each of two stages are described in the discussion of the current article. The characteristics of salt hydrates from Na2HPO4 and CaCl2 are fitted to be applied as secondary refrigerant. This material has high latent heat value and matched phase change temperature, as well as a very low corrosion rate. This material also demonstrates excellent heat transfer performance, in which an increase as much as 18.62% for salt hydrate from calcium chloride and 13.9% for salt hydrate from disodium hydrogen phosphate. For its flow characteristics, there was a less significant increase on pressure drop for Na2HPO4.
