Guidelines to build novel coated construction of adsorption beds

What is it about?

The paper presents development of guidelines to build novel coated construction of adsorption beds. The criterion for selection of optimum bed components in terms of improving COP of the adsorption chillers dedicated to air conditioning has been defined. Silica gel has been indicated as the most favorable sorbent for modification of the bed construction with glue.

Why is it important?

The coated bed construction is one of the innovative directions for intensification of heat and mass transfer processes in adsorption beds.
