Nanocap Technologies Develops Revolutionary Air Drying Process for Air Conditioning Systems and Other Dehumidification Applications

Vastly more efficient than current method of drying air with energy savings of 20-35% typical. Patented technology available for immediate licensing.

West Hartford, CT; Longboat Key, FL (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

Nanocap Technologies, LLC ( announces the Nanocap Process, which uses capillary condensation and then osmosis through a semi-permeable membrane to dry air. Based on nanopore technology and available for immediate licensing, this green process is considerably more efficient than the current method of dehumidification – in use since 1902! The current system squanders a large amount of energy by cooling air down to the dew point to get water vapor to condense and drip off refrigerated coils. It then heats the air back up to a comfortable temperature. Nanocap’s transformative process avoids wasting energy to cool and reheat the air. The Nanocap Process may be viewed here:

Energy Savings

  •  Energy savings of 20-35% expected during typical air conditioning use
  •  Air is pre-dried, separate from the cooling process
  •  There is no need to cool air to the dew point and then reheat it to comfortable temperatures
  •  Air conditioning would be used much less in cool, high humidity weather
  •  Helps meet current and future government-required efficiency standards

Increased Customer Comfort and Satisfaction

  • Lower operating costs
  • Humidity control is independent of cooling so air is neither too warm nor too cold
  • “Comfort-stat” will have humidistat and thermostat controls for individual comfort
  • Air won’t be “muggy” in very humid spaces, including exercise rooms, schools, and convention halls
  • Noise levels are significantly reduced
  • Environmentally friendly

Lower Production Costs

  • Condensers and compressors are smaller so air conditioners are cheaper to produce
  • Standard air conditioning cycle is used to cool dehumidified air
  • Dehumidifier may be incorporated in air conditioning systems either as embedded technology during the manufacturing process, or as a simple retrofit to existing systems
  • Essential components are commercially available
  • Polymer membranes are flexible, compact, and inexpensive
  • Membranes are long-lasting and do not degrade
  • Using membranes and salt solution to dehumidify results in large cost savings
  • Moving parts are minimized

“Nanocap Technologies is proud to present the Nanocap Process for licensing to organizations that develop or utilize air conditioning and dehumidification technologies for their product lines. The three most important characteristics of the Nanocap Process are energy savings, increased customer comfort and satisfaction, and lower production costs. Our patented system can be utilized with many applications that would benefit from a significantly improved air drying process, including residential, commercial, and industrial buildings, vehicle air conditioners, and high-humidity indoor environments. The unique advantages of the Nanocap Process, not available in any current air conditioners or dehumidifiers, will provide energy savings of 20-35% during typical air conditioning use, while helping solution providers meet current and future mandated energy requirements. For example, home air conditioning uses almost 5% of all electricity in the United States. This amount of energy costs over $15 billion per year in the U.S. alone. Savings afforded by the Nanocap Process will amount to between $3 billion to $5.25 billion per year. Additionally, since running an air conditioner in an automobile decreases gas mileage by 5 to 10%, a separate process of dehumidifying the automobile’s cabin will provide passenger comfort without the need for excessive use of the vehicle’s’ air conditioner,” said a company spokesman. He added, “All end-users will experience lower operating costs, as air conditioning would be used much less since dried air will provide comfortable environments without the need for wasteful, noisy, and inefficient complementary cooling. As for the integration of the Nanocap Process within cooling or dehumidification solutions, lower production costs will result from the reduced footprint of smaller condensers and compressors, etc. Finally, licensing our technology will clearly provide integrated and total solution providers with benefits that will result in significant increases in market share.”
