Abstract

Desiccant cooling mechanism is one of the alternate methods to control the humidity of air and temperature, compared to the conventional vapor compression method of air conditioning. Desiccant cooling doesn't use harmful chemicals which e®ect the ozone layer and it saves lots of energy. Summer air condition system can use this technology since it removes the latent heat load from the room e®ectively and this process is economical. Selection of the appropriate liquid desiccant and packing material is very vital to obtain maximum dehumidi¯cation. This paper focuses on the di®erent desiccants and packings used by di®erent researchers to enhance the dehumidi¯cation. Simple and hybrid systems are also reviewed, and their comparison are presented based on the construction and dehumidi¯cation performance.
