Title:
HUMIDITY CONDITIONING DEVICE AND HUMIDITY CONDITIONING METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/135396
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is a humidity conditioning method whereby it is possible to absorb and desorb moisture with low power consumption. This humidity conditioning method has an adjustment step for adjusting the moisture content of a hygroscopic liquid and a measurement step for measuring the concentration of the hygroscopic substance contained in the hygroscopic liquid. The adjustment step involves performance of a moisture absorption process for absorbing moisture contained in air into the hygroscopic liquid and/or a regeneration process for separating moisture from the hygroscopic liquid. The regeneration process includes an atomization process in which at least some of the hygroscopic liquid is insonified with ultrasonic waves to generate atomized droplets, which are then removed, from the hygroscopic liquid. The atomized droplets contain a first droplet and a second droplet having a particle size larger than that of the first droplet. The concentration range of the hygroscopic substance with respect to the total mass of the hygroscopic liquid includes: a first concentration range in which the first droplet is generated; and a second concentration range in which the second droplet is generated and where the concentration is lower than in the first concentration range. The moisture content of the hygroscopic liquid is adjusted, on the basis of at least the measurement result obtained in the measurement step, so that the concentration is included in the first concentration range.
