Since the widespread spread of the SARS and SBS (Sick Building Syndrome) viruses in a building's air conditioning system, there has been a recent emphasis on enhancing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Proper air ventilation requires a system capable of balancing the energy requirements and air quality. A liquid dryer air cooling system is an alternative to conventional air dehumidification technology, it may improve air quality and decrease its primary energy consumption. Consequently, a crossflow liquid desiccant dehumidification system is investigated in this study. The experiment's structured packing consists of a cooling coil with finned tubes. Where ionic liquid flows vertically from top to bottom through the cooling coil, while air flows horizontally in a cross-flow configuration, and water flows inside the tube. Lastly, the effect of varying solution inlet condition flow rate and air is presented on system performance.
