Chapter 7

Industrial Process Heat, Chemistry Applications, and Solar Dryers

Abstract

Chapter 7 describes industrial process heat systems. Initially, the general design considerations are given in which solar industrial air and water systems are examined. Subsequently, the characteristics of solar steam generation systems are presented and include sections on steam generation methods and flash vessel design. This is followed by solar chemistry applications, which include reforming of fuels and solar cells. The latter include a survey of their basic characteristics, fuel cell chemistry and a review of the types of fuel cells. The last section of the chapter deals with an analysis of active and passive solar dryers, the drying process characteristics, ...
