  • Patent number: 4765395
    Abstract: A device for continuous production of heat and cold comprises a combination of an external heat source (10), at least first and second units (1, 2) each of which operates by using different solid-fluid adsorbent-refrigerant pairs, and each of which includes two reactors (11, 12; 21, 22) containing the same solid adsorbent, a condenser (13, 23) and an evaporator (14). The reactors of the first unit (1) are connected alternately to the external heat source (10) and the heat recovered from the first unit (1) is used to heat alternately the reactors of the second unit (2). Heat may be tapped at the condensers, and cold may be tapped at the evaporators.

  • Patent number: 4697433
    Abstract: A thermal energy collector, intended for a system such as a cooling system of the solar type whose mode of operation includes a phase consisting of adsorption of a fluid by a given material and a subsequent desorption phase, comprises a compartment having an upper surface to be exposed to a source of thermal energy and a bottom surface to be connected to a duct joining the compartment to the aforementioned system, with the adsorptive-desorptive material being placed between these surfaces. To increase the efficiency of the adsorptive-desorptive material, a space is provided between the material and the bottom surface of the compartment, with a supporting layer containing openings being placed beneath the material in order to hold it in place against the upper surface.

  • Patent number: 4686836
    Abstract: A two terminal control switch having a main switch and a saturable current transformer whose primary winding is series connected with the main switch. A center tapped full wave rectifier has a capacitor connected between its DC sides, such capacitor also being connected to a junction between the primary winding and the main switch.

  • Patent number: 4509337
    Abstract: The invention relates to a refrigeration device using solar energy. This device includes a refrigeration fluid, such as water, which circulates between the solar energy heat exchanger 8 containing zeolite, and an evaporator 2 located in a cooling chamber 1 through a condenser 6, then return to the exchanger 8 through a three way valve 7. The device includes a second channel in the exchanger 8, which channel includes a fluid, and a second exchanger consisting of a tube with fins 20 connected to a storage tank 25 containing water at various temperatures. During the day whenever the period of sunshine is not sufficient, additional heat in the form of hot water is provided to the exchanger 8.Conversely if the night temperature is not low enough, cooling in the exchanger 8 is assisted by a cooling device 23 located in the second channel. Hot water C. is provided by the excess heat produced by the sun at day's end.
