Theoretical and experimental investigation on the application of solar water heater coupled with air humidifier for regeneration of liquid desiccant

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 3 June 2011brA.S., Alosaimy , Ahmed M., HamedbrTheoretical and experimental investigation on the application of flat plate solar water heater coupled with air humidifier for regeneration of liquid desiccant has been presented in this work. The heated water from the storage tank of the solar heating system is circulated in a finned tube air heater. Hot air from the air heater is blown through a packing of a honeycomb type for the purpose of regeneration of calcium chloride (CaCl2) solution. An experimental system has been designed and installed for this purpose. The system comprises a solar water heater with a storage tank connected to an air/water heat…br Highlights: ► We investigated a solar water heater coupled with desiccant regenerator. ► Calcium chloride solution was applied as the working desiccant. ► The solution can be regenerated up to 50% using the solar water heater. ► A nearly steady state operation can be attained when storage tank is used.
