The enhancement of the efficiency of adsorption heat pumps depends on the adsorption capacity of the adsorbent materials as well as on heat transfer efficiency between the adsorbent material in contact with the heat exchanger and the heat transfer fluid. The heat transfer efficiency can be improved by coating the heat exchangers with a thin layer of adsorbent material consolidated by means of a proper binder. In the present paper, three innovative silane-based adsorbent coating compositions, employing a commercial SAPO 34 as adsorbent material, are presented. Their physico-chemical and the mechanical features have been deeply studied, demonstrating promising characteristics which make them as an attractive solution to enhance achievable power density of adsorption machines.
