RESUMO

A composite chemical heat storage material, EMC, comprising a mixture of expanded graphite (EG), magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2), and calcium chloride (CaCl2) has been developed as a magnesium oxide/water chemical heat pump reactant. The reaction kinetic characterization of the optimized EMC (which was an optimized mixing weight ratio of the material) was conducted. From BET and thermal conductivity measurements, it was confirmed that an optimized EMC had a higher specific surface area and thermal conductivity values than pure Mg(OH)2 on adding EG. The durability of the optimized EMC was also investigated by thermobalance and XRD experiments. EMC maintained enough reacted conversion and unchanged crystal structure throughout the repetitive experiment. The film diffusion control model was suggested as a dominant reaction process for MgO hydration by kinetic analysis of experimental results. In conclusion, the optimized EMC showed shorter dehydration time corresponding to the heat storage process period and enhanced hydration conversion corresponding to the heat output capacity than pure Mg(OH)2 on adding EG, a moldable and porous carbon material, and a CaCl2 hydrophilic material.
