lithium bromide

[′lith·ē·əm ′brō‚mīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
LiBr·H2O A white, deliquescent, granular powder with a bitter taste, melting at 547°C; soluble in alcohol and glycol; used to add moisture to air-conditioning systems and as a sedative and hypnotic in medicine.

The consequent high temperature flue gas is converted to high temperature steam, which can be used to produce hot water or chilled water by the Lithium Bromide refrigeration units.
Increasing demand for lithium bromide in refrigeration and drying applications is expected to in turn drive growth of global lithium bromide market over the forecast period.
A design procedure was applied to a lithium bromide absorption cycle and an optimization procedure that consists of determining the enthalpy, entropy, temperature, mass flow rate, and heat rate in each component and coefficient of performance was calculated.
Despite a number of studies on the viscosity (Isono 1984; Wimby and Berntsson 1994), experimental data on concentrated solutions are still lacking for the lithium bromide and lithium chloride aqueous solutions in a wide range of concentrations.
To calculate the chemical Exergy of lithium bromide as a pure component the equation 16 is applied [27, 28].
"The absorption chiller uses high vacuum conditions to lower the boiling point of water to 3.7[euro]1/2oaeC (versus 100[euro]1/2oaeC at atmospheric pressure) while leveraging the chemical affinity of Lithium Bromide (LiBR) to absorb water," explaines Al Awadhi.
[7] conduct experimental research on a new solar pump-free lithium bromide absorption refrigeration system with a second generator the maximum coefficient of performance (COP) approaches 0.787.
Unlike photovoltaic cooling in which PV panels generate solar electricity to power an electrical cooling device, the dual-effect absorption chiller - a refrigeration system that uses a heated thermal fluid to drive a thermo-chemical process - uses water as a refrigerant and lithium bromide (LiBr) as the absorber.
Shuangliang is dedicated towards providing comprehensive solutions of energy saving, fresh water saving and producing by products of Lithium Bromide Absorption Chillers, Air Cooled Condensing System for Thermal/Nuclear Power Plant, Sea Water Desalination System, High Efficiency Heat Exchanger as well as Expandable Polystyrene.
Shuangliang has developed Lithium Bromide absorption chillers which are non-volatile and pollution free.
Two of the chapters in this volume report the findings of electrochemical tests performed at the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Morelos on the effect of inorganic corrosion inhibitors added to a lithium bromide brine and the use of polymer films on carbon steel in alkaline media.
Similar to conventional absorption chillers, the ADsorption chiller uses recovered heat from the power generating process instead of electricity to produce chilled water, but one of the many benefits is that it does not require the use of lithium bromide.
