Abstract

A prototype adsorption desalination facility is experimentally studied, and the performance tests are conducted with and without the heat and mass recovery procedures. The experiments show that practical and yet effective methods could yield a significant boost to the specific daily water production and performance ratio of the desalination plant by 15.7% and 42.5%, respectively.
