Air conditioning

energy-saving – non-combustible – stable – non-volatile –non-corrosive – air purifying

More and more often the technologies used in building air conditioning, first dry the fresh air and then cool and humidify it optimally by injecting water (sorption cooling). Solid desiccants are currently used in this process. They are difficult to manipulate and as a result these air conditioning systems have a complicated structure. Users of such technologies are looking for liquid, non-volatile desiccants. Conventional liquids currently consist of solutions of highly corrosive inorganic salts in water or of organic solvents like triethylene glycol, which are volatile and show the disadvantage of evaporating. This regularly leads to loss and contamination of the air. It is not possible to utilize the advantages of liquid desiccants against this background.


Advantages of the technology developed by proionic

proionic offers a liquid, non-corrosive and non-volatile desiccant which cannot evaporate due to the basic properties of ionic liquids. This prevents loss and contamination. It is possible to reduce or even completely remove harmful air constituents. This is made possible by a process developed by proionic for separating polar substances, such as water or carbon dioxide, from air and gas flows. Savings of around 20% -30% energy compared to the systems used to date can be made, when operating air conditioning systems using the liquid desiccant from proionic. The desiccant is easier to manipulate than the usual solid desiccants. This allows the installations for air conditioning to be more compact and more cost-effective, making them very interesting for consumers and for the automotive industry.

proionic has already sold a non-exclusive license to a well-known company in the air conditioning technology industry and is very interested in further collaboration projects.
