Sorption cooling system



[edit]
Description Unlike conventional HVAC systems, sorption cooling systems do not require an external source of cooling for cooling and dehumidification of the air. Instead, sorptive materials dehumidify the air and water evaporation cools the air. There are sorption cooling systems with solid absorbers and others with fluid absorbers. Those with solid absorbers are already widely available, while those with fluid absorbers are at the brink of widespread availability.
Advantages
  • High efficiency
  • More eco-friendly than conventional HVAC systems
  • Low investment and operating costs
  • Sorption cooling systems with fluid absorbers: Sorption and generation can be separated, due to the separate storage of the two fluid materials.
Disadvantages

Adjustment necessary for certain buildings, climatic conditions and occupancy

Application barriers

Needs to be adjusted to suit frame conditions
