Abstract

This study experimentally investigated the effect of adsorbent height on adsorption dynamics for carbon dioxide gas (CO2) adsorption onto commercially available highly porous activated carbon powder, named as Maxsorb III. The experiments were conducted using a magnetic suspension adsorption measurement unit. Three different heights of the Maxsorb III adsorbent were used in the experiments. Experimental data were reported for adsorption temperatures of 30 °C and 70 °C and for 2 different pressure steps. It had been observed that the adsorption rate strongly depended on the height of the adsorbent. This signifies that the kinetic parameters obtained by the similar experimental measurements may not be directly applicable in designing an adsorption heat exchanger. The lower height of the adsorbent provided faster adsorption kinetics. Key performance parameter, such as the specific cooling capacity for an adsorption refrigeration system was also calculated from the experimental data. The results of the present study suggested that the adsorbent height needs to be considered while using kinetics parameters in designing adsorption heat exchanger..
