Air-sand heat exchanger

The heat exchanger should show the following properties:

• Good heat transfer, heat losses < 20 %, temperature difference between sand outlet and air inlet temperature < 10 %

• Low pressure loss ApAir < 5000 Pa

• Compact design

To meet these requirements a concept has been chosen, which is featured by:

• Cross flow arrangement of heat transfer media air and sand

• Low width design for reduction of pressure drop in the moving packed bed

The hot air enters through a porous wall, passes through the moving bed of sand, and flows out at lower temperature through another porous wall, see Fig. 3.

The requirements to be met by the porous walls include:

• Thermal strength

• Abrasion resistance

• Low pressure drop

• Mechanical strength
