An experimental investigation of a fluidized bed with multiple cooling pipes was conducted to study adsorption characteristics of a new organic sorbent desiccant material (HU300P) for a new air conditioning system. The mass ratio of the present sorbent desiccant powder type is from 1.3 to 2.3 times greater than that of silica gel. The sorption rate of the water vapor in the sorbent bed was measured under various conditions. It was found that the sorption rate is highly dependent on the effect of cooling pipes. The sorption ratio increases and the completion time for the sorption process decreases by using multiple cooling pipes.
