Performance Test and Energy Saving Analysis of a Heat Pipe Dehumidifier
MetadataShow full item record
Heat pipe technology applied to ventilation, dryness, and cooling and heating radiator in a building is introduced in this paper. A new kind of heat pipe dehumidifier is designed and tested. The energy-saving ratio with the heat pipe dehumidifier ranges from 11.81% to 30.34% compared with the normal dehumidifier, according to the performance testing. The dehumidification capacity and the surface cooler power increases, but the energy saving ratio is reduced with the increase of air relative humidity, dry bulb temperature and air quantity
