Abstract

This paper presents the modeling and successful operation of a miniaturized Pressurized Adsorption Chiller (PAC) which utilizes Propane as the adsorbate and activated carbon as the adsorbent. The Propane + Activated Carbon Pair has previously been found to be able to function under adverse conditions where low temperature refrigeration is required, placed at high ambient temperature locales. This work focuses on the modeling of the pressure equalization process, and the feasibility of the working pair. A maximum cooling load of 7W is tested for the various cycle times. Experimentally, it has been found to successfully provide cooling, albeit with a low COP (<0.5), typical of waste heat driven systems.
