Activated-Carbon Sorbent With Integral Heat-Transfer Device
Author and Affiliation:
Jones, Jack A.(Caltech)
Yavrouian, Andre(Caltech)
Abstract: Prototype adsorption device used, for example, in adsorption heat pump, to store natural gas to power automobile, or to separate components of fluid mixtures. Device includes activated carbon held together by binder and molded into finned heat-transfer device providing rapid heating or cooling to enable rapid adsorption or desorption of fluids. Concepts of design and fabrication of device equally valid for such other highly thermally conductive devices as copper-finned tubes, and for such other high-surface-area sorbents as zeolites or silicates.
