Any material that attracts and holds water vapor is a desiccant. Commercial desiccants attract and release a large amount of water vapor depending on moisture available in the environment they are exposed to. Composite desiccants can be made into any shape, so a low- pressure drop desiccant wheel with air flow channels can be designed to reduce the power consumption of the system. Moreover encouraging is that the new desiccant wheel can be driven by a lower recovery temperature for securing a low measure of moisture release. The reason is that the composite desiccant materials, which are worked with composite material joining silica gel is a flawless technique, bear on superior to anything silica gel alone in moisture adsorption. This paper presents a combined analytical study on dehumidification, cooling and circulating air through cooling systems using distinctive solid composite desiccant with focus on different air flow rates, dehumidification of moist air and regeneration of solid desiccant wheel. A comparable examination of various solid desiccants has low operating and maintenance cost and its condition friendly.
