Quantitative thermodynamic analysis demonstrates that an adsorption refrigeration cycle could get higher cycle performance by employing a suction line heat exchanger (SLHX). Low temperature evaporated gas not only helps to cool down the adsorbent, it further increases the cooling output by recovering heat and cooling the condensed liquid. Experimental data also verifies that a SLHX recovers heat from the evaporated gas and helps the evaporator to provide higher cooling capacity.
