Resumo: The performances of well-known porous metal/metalloid oxide adsorbents (zeolite 13X, zeolite 4A and silica gel) and less explored Engelhard titanosilicate ETS-10 for water adsorption heating systems (AHSs) were compared with the aid of computational modelling and simulations. The developed model contemplated adsorption equilibrium, one-dimensional heat and mass transfer in the bed, external heat transfer limitations, and intraparticle mass transport. The pair zeolite 13X/water seemed most promising for the AHS partly due to a higher amount of heat generated per cycle, and favourable water-adsorption isotherm features. Based on sensitivity studies, for zeolite particle diameters in the range 0.2–0.6 mm, the coefficient of performance was 1.48 and the specific heating power was in the range 1141–1254Wkgs −1. Aiming at inferior computational and numerical efforts, the impact of considering some simplified postulations (e.g. constant thermal conductivity of the adsorbent; constant isosteric heat of adsorption; constant linear driving force coefficient), while ensuring comparable predictions of the performances of the AHSs, was successfully investigated.
