Abstract

A sorption balance is an instrument used to measure vapor uptake in a sample at controlled temperature and relative humidity. It is most commonly used to determine equilibrium values (sorption isotherms), but is also used for kinetic measurements of transport coefficients. Such measurements can be affected by the external mass transfer resistance in the gas phase around the sample. This paper presents a method to determine the external mass transfer coefficient for a given flow geometry using a water saturated sample, including corrections for temperature changes from evaporative cooling, which is found to have considerable effect on the calculated constant.
