Résumé

The feasibility of applying a low cost plate heat exchanger solid sorption reactor to solar powered refrigeration is investigated by using a validated reactor model. The proposed system is targeted at ice-making in developing countries for food preservation. The adsorption refrigeration machine modelled employs the active carbon-ammonia working pair in both two-bed and four-bed regenerative systems. Driving heat is provided from standard flat plate and evacuated tube solar collectors. The capital cost of a one-off machine with four regenerative beds which could produce up to 1000 kg of ice per day in Dakar (Senegal) is estimated at €68,000.
