Study on consolidated composite sorbents impregnated with LiCl for thermal energy storage

In this study, a new type of sorption process was developed using activated carbon (AC) as a porous host to carry LiCl. A silica solution (SS) and expanded natural graphite treated with sulfuric acid (ENG-TSA) were added to increase heat transfer and mechanical strength of the composite. Thermal conductivities of the samples were measured using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique. Results found higher thermal conductivities directly correlated to larger ...

Theoretical and experimental investigation of a closed sorption thermal storage prototype using LiCl/water

Consolidated water sorbents with varying densities were prepared by adding expanded graphite treated with sulphuric acid to activated carbon-lithium chloride composites for use as a lab-scale prototype for thermal energy storage. The sorption reactor prototype that was designed was unable to reach the 1 kWh heat storage target. Further research will be done with the goal of developing a 15 kWh reactor which would be capable of meeting the heating demand of ...
