dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the performance testing of Zeolite adsorption cooling system driven by low grade waste heat source extracted from prime mover's exhaust, power plant's exhaust and the solar energy. The adsorbent FAM Z01 is used as an adsorbent in the adsorption chiller facility. Owing to its large equilibrium pore volume, it has the high affinity for the water vapor adsorbate. The key advantages of the Zeolite adsorption cooling system are: (i) it has no moving parts rendering less maintenance, (ii) the energy efficient means of cooling by the adsorption process with a low temperature heat source, (iii) the use of vapor pipes are replaced by self actuating vapor valves rendering smaller footprint area and (iv) it is environmental friendly with low carbon footprint. The experimental investigations were carried out for Zeolite adsorption chiller at different key operating conditions namely (i) heat source temperature, (ii) the cycle time and (iii) the heat recovery time. It is investigated that performance of coefficient (COP) of this system could be as high as 0.48 while the waste heat source temperature is applicable as low as 55 °C. © 2012.
