Abstract: Adsorption refrigeration systems have a distinct advantage over other system in their ability to be driven by relatively low heat source, at near ambient temperature, so that waste heat below 100 ?C can be recovered. The fundamental adsorption characteristics i.e. isotherm and kinetics for assorted adsorbent-adsorbate pairs are studied experimentally to investigate the optimal working pair. Based on these empirical formulations, a thermodynamic framework for mass and energy transport is studied to model the pressurized adsorption chiller (PAC). A bench-scale pressurized adsorption chiller prototype is built which allows sub-zero cooling (-18 ?C) as halocarbon refrigerant is used.
