B. Zettl, H. Kirchsteiger - AN OPEN SORPTION HEAT STORAGE APPLICATION - Proceeding of the International Sustainable Energy Conference – ISEC 2018, Graz, Graz, Austria, 2018, pp. 8
The actual state of a sorption process development using zeolite for a long-term heat storage application is showing advantages and drawbacks of the open sorption technology. While the prototype can be constructed with standard components from bulk material process technology material handling needs special solution to avoid abrasion, dust extraction and heat losses of desorption furnace and adsorption reactor. Modelling of the adsorption reactor is based on a modified fixed bed model together with the assumption of complete homogenized material bed due to rotation movement.
