Application of moisture membrane system can increase the efficiency of the HVAC system where the latent heat load is responsible for a large fraction of total energy. The moisture transfer mechanisms in membranes were studied on our experimental device, which supplied dry air and humid air in two regime. The dry air and humid air were delivered to membrane-based enthalpy exchanger with two contraflow cavities separated by the examined membrane. Nine types of hydrophilic membranes were compared
