  • Breakthrough measurements with water vapor provide useful information relevant for adsorptive heat storage applications, e.g. temperature profiles within the adsorber, adsorption capacities, kinetics of adsorption, etc.
  • Aging and regeneration studies can be conducted under technically relevant conditions.
  • Breakthrough curves can be converted into ››heat power curves‹‹characteristic for an open adsorptive heat storage at certain process conditions.
  • Energetic considerations (calorimetry) alone miss the impact of dynamical aspects in adsorptive heat storage applications
