Abstract

An adsorption chiller requires thermal energy to regenerate the adsorbent by desorbing the refrigerant vapor. Minimum desorption temperature is the parameter which defines the lowest possible heat source temperature required for driving adsorption chiller. In this study minimum desorption temperature is evaluated for different types of adsorption isotherms classified by International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). For each type, adsorption isotherm model is utilized to estimate the minimum desorption temperature and then compared to the mathematical expression reported in literature derived using Dubinin-Astakhov isotherm model. This allows for critical scrutiny of the universal validity of mathematical expression. It is observed that this expression can estimate the minimum desorption temperature with reasonable accuracy for all isotherm models.
