Sorption cooling system

Revision as of 12:36, 20 May 2015 by Admin (Talk | contribs)

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. Those with solid absorbers are already widely available, while those with fluid absorbers are at the brink to widespread availability.
  • 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.
