Experimental Validation of a Fixed Bed Solid Sorption Mathematical Model Using Zeolite 13XBF


With the increase in renewable energy implementation all over the globe, the need for storage technologies is also raising, in order to match the renewables intermittent production with the demand and create a more resilient energy infrastructure. Due to its importance, in this study, a thermo -chemical heat storage system is investigated. A mathematical model of an open sorption system with a fixed zeolite 13XBF (binder-free) bed is validated using a setup assembled in the laboratory. The equipment used to perform the experiments the mathematical model, and the results obtained will be here presented. A comparison between experiments and simulation was performed and the results are satisfactory.
