Industrial Heat Pumps

 

Adsorption heat pump

The principle of operation of adsorption heat pumps is equal to that of the absorption heat pump. The only difference is that an adsorption heat pump uses solid-sorption instead of the liquid-sorption that is used in absorption systems. The material pairs stated below are regularly applied in adsorption heat pump systems.

The adsorption principle is more and more used in small heat pump systems (70-500 kW), that are mainly used for cooling.
