In this work, undergraduate students will assess the usage of heat pipes as a means
of moving heat to and from an adsorption bed. Specifically, heat management in thermal
swing adsorption systems is complex, and in some cases, can be the rate-limiting step
that dictates system operation and efficiency. In general, this complexity arises
because adsorption occurs when the adsorbent is at ambient temperature, but during
regeneration, heat is used to remove adsorbed molecules. As a result, immediately
after heating the bed during regeneration, the bed must be cooled before it can return
to adsorption service. Many schemes can be envisioned to manage this energy balance,
such as using multiple beds to allow for cooling steps or placing the bed being heated
in contact with a bed being cooled. More information on the grant can be found here:
