Effectiveness of Desiccant Coated Regenerative Wheels from Transient Response Characteristics and Flow Channel Properties – Part II: Predicting and Comparing the Latent Effectiveness of Dehumidifier and Energy Wheels Using Transient Data and Properti

In this paper, a new transient response theory is developed to predict the moisture or water transfer time constant and the fully developed flow moisture effectiveness of dehumidifier wheels and latent energy effectiveness of energy wheels. A new method to… Read more

Effectiveness of Desiccant Coated Regenerative Wheels from Transient Response Characteristics and Flow Channel Properties – Part I: Development of Effectiveness Equations from Transient Response Characteristics

During steady operation, regenerative wheels are subjected to cyclic step changes in inlet properties. The equation for the transient humidity step response of a desiccant coated rotary air-to-air wheel is developed from physical principles using a model similar to that… Read more
