Study Experimental Dehumication System Working with Liquid Desiccant
Lately, much attention was shown to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) since a large-scale outbreak of the SARS
and SBS (Sick Building Syndrome) viruses in a building's air conditioning system. It requires an effective system to create a
proper air ventilation system, balancing the energy needs and air quality. A liquid dryer air cooling is an alternative for the
conventional air dehumidification technology; it may enhance the air quality and reduce its primary energy consumption.
Therefore, this study investigates a crossflow liquid desiccant dehumidification system. For the experiment, the structured
packing consists of a finned tube cooling coil. Where ionic liquid flows vertically through the cooling coil from top to
bottom, while the air flows horizontally, making it a cross-flow configuration, and the cooling water flows inside the tube.
Finally, the effect of varying solution inlet condition flow rate and air on the system performance is presented.
