Adsorption Cooling for Automobiles Utilizing Exhaust Heat
Application of the adsorption cooling system to automobile cooling utilizing exhaust heat was investigated. As the first step, heat transfer properties needed for the adsorbent bed were quantitatively clarified and a novel zeolite bed containing metallic fibers was designed. It was known that about a hundred times enhancement of heat transfer required for the system can be achieved by the designed zeolite bed. Also, over ten times enhancement was experimentally achieved.
