A cross-cooled silica gel desiccant dehumidifier model was designed, built, and tested. The performance of the unit was studied as a function of the inlet process stream dew point, process stream and cooling stream flow rates, and regeneration stream temperature and dew point. The tests were also simulated by a computer program and were compared to the experimental results.
