Adsorption isotherms and kinetics of activated carbon/Difluoroethane adsorption pair: Theory and experiments
This study introduces a new adsorbent/refrigerant pair to be used in adsorption cooling applications. Adsorption isotherms and kinetics of Difluoroethane (HFC-152a) onto highly porous activated carbon Maxsorb III at temperatures ranging from 25 to 75°C have been investigated. Experimental data of adsorption uptake have been fitted with Dubinin–Astakhov (D– A) and Tóth equations. D–A equation is found to be more ... Read more

Innovative mechanical vapor compression adsorption desalination (MVC-AD) system
An innovative combination between mechanical vapor compression and adsorption techniques has been studied as a hybrid desalination system. A semi continues adsorption desalination-cooling system employing silica gel with two adsorption beds has been proposed. The proposed system has been investigated theoretically to work under different operating conditions using a proposed simulation FORTRAN code. The results have been compared with an ... Read more

Study of a silica gel-water based dual mode adsorption chiller
This article presents analytical investigation results on the performance of dual-mode multi-bed adsorption cooling systems using silica gel-water pair. This novel adsorption chiller utilizes effectively low-temperature solar or waste heat sources of temperature between 40 and 85°C. Two operation modes are possible for the advanced chiller. The first operation mode will be to work as a highly efficient conventional chiller ... Read more

Highly porous activated carbon based adsorption cooling system employing difluoromethane and a mixture of pentafluoroethane and difluoromethane
This paper presents a simulation for a lowgrade thermally powered two-beds adsorption cooling system employing HFC-32 and a mixture of HFC-32 and HFC-125 (HFC-410a) with activated carbon of type Maxsorb III. The present simulation model adopts experimentally measured adsorption isotherms, adsorption kinetics and isosteric heat of adsorption data. Effect of operating conditions (mass flow rate of hot water, driving heat ... Read more

Derivation of isosteric heat of adsorption for non-ideal gases
This paper presented a theoretical framework for precise determination of the isosteric heat of adsorption for non-ideal gases. The derived equation had been applied for various adsorbent–refrigerant pairs. Highly porous activated carbon powder, namely Maxsorb III and activated carbon fiber of type (A-20) were used as adsorbents with HFC-134a and HFC-410a as refrigerants. The isosteric heat of adsorption data showed ... Read more
