Abstract

Experiments were carried out in order to determine how the performance of a vapor compression air conditioning system is affected by a dehumidifier filter installed before the evaporator. The experiments monitored the energy consumed by the refrigeration system while the latent load was held at high and low levels. It was found that at high latent loads, there are important savings in energy, around 14,5%, while at low latent loads, the energy savings are around 2%.
