Taken together, these capabilities mean that a closed-loop adiabatic process cooling system can reduce energy consumption for process cooling by as much as 50% compared to a conventional cooling tower/central chiller system.
All evaporation and water consumed in the adiabatic process are external to the process loop, so process-fluid contamination and unwanted buildup in mold-cooling channels are eliminated.
Since this is an adiabatic process, there is no net change in the enthalpy of the airstream.
An adiabatic process for the purpose of parcel theory means that the parcel of unsaturated air that is being lifted is expanding and cooling at a constant rate and does not exchange heat or moisture (mass) with its surroundings.
The injection molding filling stage can be considered as an adiabatic process, depending on the value of a dimensionless number defined and used before [13, 14]
All of the evaporation and water consumed in the adiabatic process is external to the process loop, so process-fluid contamination--and unwanted build-up in mold-cooling channels--is eliminated.
Humidifiers using the adiabatic process exchange sensible heat of air with latent heat of water to accomplish evaporation.
To reduce production costs while maintaining or enhancing product quality, ABCO studied the best way to achieve this result using an adiabatic process.
Thus the principle of adiabatic process is broken and in each point stimulated this way, coal is being brought to an equilibrium thermal state which does not belong it in the frame of expected continuous oxidation.
