Abstract : The patent describes an air cycle cooling system having a rotary condensing dehumidifier wherein the air from the compressor is passed through the vanes of a transverse flow heat exchanger with the cooled air from the expansion turbine being passed over the external surfaces of the vanes to thereby cool the air within the vanes. The cooling of the air within the vanes causes the moisture to be condensed. The water in the vanes is moved along with the moving air by viscus interaction. The water collects in the end member of the transverse flow heat exchanger and is removed by centrifugal force through poppet valves.
