Alternative refrigerating and heat pumping system.


The possibility to create refrigerating systems on the basis of the open absorption cycle (pre-dehumidification of air by a liquid absorbent, evaporative cooling, solar regeneration of the absorbent) is discussed in the paper. The main schematic developments aimed at the use of solar energy as a heating source are presented. The indirect evaporative cooling (the usual and regenerative schemes) is used. The variant of an absorber with internal evaporative cooling has been considered.
