The results obtained using simple models of combined heat and mass transfer in nonisothermal vapor or gas absorption by aqueous solutions are generalized. The models take into account specific properties of two-phase binary systems used in absorbers of thermotransformers (heat pumps and refrigerators). Some authors have already cited certain of the results, including criterial dependences obtained via exact solutions, in reference books and monographs. This paper represents a wider spectrum of problems. The Russian, more detailed version of the article, was published as a book.
