Design and Experimental Investigation of Solar Adsorption Refrigeration System Using Silica Gel - Water

Kush Ashokkumar Soni

Abstract: Adsorption refrigeration systems are developed due to the need of replacing the conventional systems which utilize environmentally harmful refrigerants and consume high grade electrical power. Solar adsorption refrigeration devices are of significance to meet the needs for cooling requirements such as water chiller, air-conditioning, ice-making and medical or food preservation in remote areas. They are also noiseless, non-corrosive and environmentally friendly. Keeping this as my motivation, I decided to work on water chiller problem. This chiller would generate cooling water for required temperature utilizing solar as an energy source. Main part of my project would be on designing a compact sized system with silica gel-water working pair.
