An innovative solar assisted desiccant and evaporative cooling (DEC) system for building air conditioning has been installed at the Solar Laboratory of the University of Palermo. In this system, air-to-air packaged wet heat exchangers are used to maximise the exploitation of the evaporative cooling potential associated with the exhaust air stream. Results obtained are very positive, showing that DEC systems can benefit from the use of wet heat exchangers to efficiently cool the air stream after the adsorption process in the desiccant wheel, without any change in moisture content

Abstract

An innovative solar assisted desiccant and evaporative cooling (DEC) system for building air conditioning has been installed at the Solar Laboratory of the University of Palermo. In this system, air-to-air packaged wet heat exchangers are used to maximise the exploitation of the evaporative cooling potential associated with the exhaust air stream. Results obtained are very positive, showing that DEC systems can benefit from the use of wet heat exchangers to efficiently cool the air stream after the adsorption process in the desiccant wheel, without any change in moisture content
