18th AIVC Conference "Ventilation and Cooling", Athens, Greece, 23-24 September 1997

One of the first sorption-supported air-conditioning systems ("Desiccative Evaporative Cooling Systems") in an industrial building in Germany was installed in a printing office in Waiblingen, a town in southern Germany. The circumstances for such a system showed to be optimal, as the printing office is equipped with its own co-generation system delivering a considerable amount of waste heat. The experiences made with the system in the hot and humid summer of 1995 were very positive. Even when the outdoor-temperature reached about 32oC, the temperature and humidity set points of 20oC and 80% relative humidity could be realized.
