Fluid Dynamics Optimization of a Novel Isothermal Adsorption Dehumidification System for Solar Driven Applications
To make adsorption dehumidification run on heat supply temperatures as low as 50°C, and allow an effective use of solar thermal collectors, a new system concept is developed. The aim is to achieve a quasi-isothermal adsorption of water vapour in solid desiccant by carrying out the process in a finned-tube heat exchanger. Heat is removed or supplied by a water circuit. Air flows through a silica gel bed, packed between the fins. A key issue in this solution is to optimize the bed porosity, indoi:10.1016/j.egypro.2015.02.002 fatcat:heanouutorborlq45a5agobmnu
