A mathematical model of condensation, evaporation and heat transfer in a regenerator having a non sorbing matrix is derived. Good agreement between heat and moisture effectivities predicted by a simulation of the model, and corresponding results from an independently derived equilibrium model is shown for a particular case. Details of an experimental facility for testing the performance of a rotary regenerator are given, and a comparison between results obtained from the facility and those produced by the model are given.
