lithium bromide solution is a liquid containing lithium and bromine. It is used in a variety of applications. It is available as a dissolved homogeneous solution at customer specified concentrations.
It is a hygroscopic solution that absorbs excess moisture and vapor to provide cooling. It is used as a desiccant in industrial air conditioning systems, such as those found in refrigerators and freezers.
When exposed to excessive amounts of lithium bromide, people can experience symptoms such as ringing in the ears, rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, speech difficulties, lethargy, twitching, vision problems, and coma. Overexposure can also damage the kidneys.
Safety is the most important issue to consider when using lithium bromide solutions. Proper handling and storage are crucial. The material must be in a container that is well labeled, and on a solid surface. It should be kept out of the direct sun and any other sources of extreme heat.
Aqueous solutions of lithium bromide are often formulated with low water vapour pressures to dissolve large quantities of polar organic substances, such as cellulose. It is a useful chemical in many industrial processes, including catalytic dehydrohalogenation for the synthesis of olefins.
Thermodynamic Analyses of an Adiabatic Chiller Using Lithium Bromide/Water Solutions
In order to assess the efficiency of an adiabatic chiller, the specific energy consumption and current efficiency of a system were evaluated with different feed concentrations. At higher feed concentrations, the current efficiency decreased due to back diffusion and unnecessary water splitting.
