Abstract

This paper has dealt with water vapor sorption characteristics of powder type organic sorbent bed by flowing a moist air. The powder type sorbent was fluidized in a rectangular vessel by the moist air flow. The sorption rate of vapor and the variation in temperature in the sorbent bed were measured under various air temperature and humidity conditions. It was found that the volume of the sorbent particles increased with in an increase in the amount of water vapor sorption. Finally, Sherwood number for water vapor mass transfer was expressed in terms of Reynolds number, the modified Stefan number, the ratio of sorbent particle diameter to fluidized bed height and Schmidt number.
