The comfort air conditioning is based on the principle of air dehumidification and cooling by means of a liquid sorptive agent and heat as the drive energy. This is called sorption-supported air conditioning. Since low temperature heat can be used as drive energy for the air dehumidification, various heat sources, e. g. solar thermal plants and district heat networks, and types of exhaust air recovery, e. g. combined heat and power plants, can be used efficiently.
This technology offers the possibility to store heat in a liquid medium nearly without loss of temperature and for a nearly unlimited period of time. Particularly in the case of non-constant heat offerings, e. g. solar energy, the stored heat can be used sustainably, allowing for an increase of the degree of efficiency.
Cooling by indirect evaporative cooling and sorption-supported air dehumidification
Cooling without current, water is sprayed into the return/exhaust air of the plate heat exchanger. The resulting evaporation of water withdraws heat from the outside air, temperature reductions of more than 10 K are possible. Additional dehumidification of outside air with sorption system
Nominal air output: 2,500 m3/h – 15,000 m3/h
