Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification and Cooling Systems

Posted on: March 6th, 2014 by Bruce Fontaine No Comments

Liquid Desiccant Systems use a non-toxic brine solution that soaks a Honeycomb Media to remove the Humidity and Enthalpy from the Air, thus conditioning the air that is to be distributed to the space.

Here is how the System Works: Outside Air and Process Air

Outside Air
1. Outside air enters system
2. Air is heated by heat exchanger
3. Liquid Desiccant heated by heat exchanger
4. Heated liquid desiccant flows on and soaks the honeycomb media
5. Air passes through the soaked media
6. Liquid Desiccant releases transferred moisture
7. Hot & Humid air is released to the outdoors
8. Concentrated liquid desiccant drains back into sump

Process Air
1. Air ( to be treated ) enters the system
2. Air cooled by heat exchanger
3. Liquid desiccant cooled by heat exchanger
4. Cooled liquid desiccant flows on and soaks honeycomb media
5. Air passes through soaked media
6. Liquid Desiccant absorbs humidity, cleans and cools air
7. Treated air conditions room
8. Diluted liquid desiccant drains back into sump
9. Water diffuses to higher Liquid Desiccant concentration to reach equilibrium
