A laboratory prototype of a fast cycle adsorption refrigerator is presented: it uses a monolithic carbon-aluminium laminate adsorbent and ammonia refrigerant. The system has a high effective thermal conductivity and density bed and is designed to provide a specific cooling power up to 1 kW/kg adsorbent. There are two generators and each one consists of a tubular stainless steel shell containing a laminate of an activated carbon discs and aluminium fins formed in situ. The full unit is designed for a power input up to 10 kW and a cooling power up to 3 kW. Preliminary results of the performance are presented. Those results allow us to assess the intensification of heat transfer within the bed.
