Lithium bromide (Anhydrous)

Lithium bromide (Anhydrous)

Lithium bromide(Anhydrous) is commonly used, particularly in the field of cooling and air conditioning.

  1. Desiccant: Anhydrous lithium bromide has the ability to absorb moisture, and it is used as a desiccant to remove humidity from the air. This is beneficial for humidity control in refrigeration cycles and air conditioning systems.
  2. Absorbent Material: Lithium bromide, when absorbing moisture, simultaneously absorbs heat. This property is utilized in absorbent materials for cooling systems and refrigerants.
  3. Cooling Cycles: Lithium bromide, with its moisture-absorbing ability, is used as a refrigerant in cooling cycles. This involves the absorption and desorption of moisture to control humidity and generate a cooling effect.
  4. Absorption Chillers: Lithium bromide serves as a desiccant in lithium absorption chillers, providing an energy-efficient method for air conditioning in buildings and industrial processes. These systems operate without the need for electrical power to achieve cooling.
