† Most desiccants adsorb more water vapor as the dry-bulb temperature of the process air falls Again the temperature of entering outdoor air varies significantly But during the cooling season the coldest temperature in the system is directly downstream of an active cooling coil Now many systems

An indoor facility provided with a liquid refrigerant dehumidifier coil connected with the main refrigeration coils in a secondary refrigerant loop and a compressor waste heat coil coupled with the primary refrigerant loop and heating a desiccant wheel for removing further humidity from the process air stream

Frosting is a major problem in refrigeration systems and its accumulation on the evaporator of a vapor compression cycle deteriorates the coil's performance In some applications frost is avoided by dehumidifying the air using solid desiccant wheels which are regenerated usually through electrical means causing high energy consumption Thus the use of liquid desiccants

The work deals with the design and the functioning simulation of a novel solar air-conditioning system The new design of the system is developed with two key stages: multi-bed dehumidifier system that ensures a regular dehumidification and an adsorption chiller that increases the energetic performance of the system Three operation modes (summer with dehumidification summer without

Desiccant dehumidification systems as add-on modules to electrical refrigeration systems could help solve the challenges facing the HVAC industry especially as increased ventilation rates need for improved indoor air quality and better humidity controls phase-out of CFCs national standards requiring higher efficiency for cooling systems and

Desiccants induce dryness in any environment and reduce the amount of moisture present in air Desiccants come in various forms and have found widespread use in the food pharmaceuticals packing electronics and many manufacturing industries Air conditioning systems can be made based on desiccants or using mechanical refrigeration systems

Psychrometrics The Cromer cycle is primarily used in air conditioning and drying applications The cold surface portion of the cycle is most often a result of a reversed Carnot or refrigeration cycle For the Cromer cycle to operate a desiccant must be exposed to two air streams one with higher humidity from a cold surface and one with lower humidity to dry it

Sometimes lubrication is also used to reduce the friction wear so that the refrigeration unit runs smoothly The oil used for lubrication reduces the friction in the moving parts and makes the refrigeration unit smooth There are two types of oil generally used in the refrigeration system for the lubrication
