Abstract: Adding thermally conductive materials and consolidating adsorbents in a thermally conductive porous matrix is one way to improve heat transfer in sorption beds. The aim of this study was to develop a model that predicts the effective thermal conductivity of consolidated composite adsorbent containing graphite flakes. A thermal constants analyzer TPS measured the thermal conductivity of consolidate adsorbent graphite flakes using the transient plane source (TPS) method. The results showed that adding thermally conductive graphite flakes significantly increased the thermal conductivity of the consolidated composite.
