Title (EN) MODULAR HUMIDIFICATION-DEHUMIDIFICATION APPARATUS FOR CONCENTRATING SOLUTIONS
(FR) APPAREIL D'HUMIDIFICATION-DÉSHUMIDIFICATION MODULAIRE POUR CONCENTRER DES SOLUTIONS
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure describes a modular humidification-dehumidification (HDH) apparatus and system for concentrating a solution including a plurality of internal modules coupled to each other. The plurality of internal modules includes a humidification module and a dehumidification module in gas flow communication with the humidification module. The humidification module includes humidification media facilitating evaporation of liquid from the solution to gas as the solution passes through the humidification media thereby producing a concentrated solution and a humidified gas. The dehumidification module includes a condensing heat exchanger for condensing vapour from the humidified gas.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil d'humidification-déshumidification (HDH) modulaire et un système pour concentrer une solution, ledit appareil comprenant une pluralité de modules internes raccordés les uns aux autres. La pluralité de modules internes comprend un module d'humidification et un module de déshumidification en communication gazeuse avec le module d'humidification. Le module d'humidification comprend un milieu d'humidification qui facilite l'évaporation des liquides de la solution en gaz quand la solution traverse ledit milieu d'humidification pour obtenir ainsi une solution concentrée et un gaz humidifié. Le module de déshumidification comprend un échangeur de chaleur-condenseur pour condenser la vapeur contenue dans le gaz humidifié.
