Important parameters used for adsorption chillers, e.g. cooling capacity, coefficient of performance, are strictly dependent on heat and mass transfer conditions between adsorbent mass and the cooling/heating medium. With the aim of energy efficiency increasing it is essential to reduce heat transfer resistance. Different bed configurations and heat exchangers constructions are recommended for adsorption bed application. In the paper the review of commonly used adsorption bed configurations, i.e. loose-grain beds or fixed beds, is presented. Also, different heat exchangers for adsorption technology were described. The characteristic features of commonly applied constructions, both for commercial use and scientific research, were presented. The experimental studies presented in the literature were investigated and the substantial conclusions from the literature review are mentioned. Also, the proposition of new adsorption bed construction using the binder and additives was mentioned.
