  • The Elimination of Ethylene in Domestic Refrigerators

    Ethylene is a plant hormone produced naturally by fruit and other plant tissues. It is known as the ripening hormone because it regulates the series of processes associated with the ripening and senescence of fruit. Eliminating ethylene from the environment, both in storage chambers and transport containers, where it is stored in the form of gas, is a widespread practice designed to provide a ...

  • What is a ton of refrigeration?

    Commercial refrigeration systems in the US are mostly rated in tons of refrigeration and this term is used widely in other parts of the world. However, outside the US, cooling systems may be normally specified in kW (or MW) or in Btu/h. The roots for refrigeration are in the ice making industry, and the ice manufacturers wanted an easy way of understanding the size of a refrigeration system in ...

  • Refrigerant gas management (case study)

    Executive Summary Refrigerant leaks are one the highest maintenance expenses for organizations using or maintaining gas. In addition to compliance, management of refrigerant is important from a cost perspective. A typical 100-store supermarket chain operates with 400,000 lbs. of refrigerant within their refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Assuming an average cost of $6 per ...

  • Exergy analysis of a vapour-compression refrigerating system using R410A as refrigerant

    In this study, the first and second laws of thermodynamics are employed to analyse the performance of an experimental Vapour-Compression Refrigerating Machine (VCRM) using R410A. The exergy method is used to evaluate the irreversibility of each component when some working parameters are varied. The dimensionless exergy loss rate of each component is analysed, emphasising their contribution to the ...

  • Exergy based refrigerant selection and simulation of auto refrigeration cascade (ARC) system

    This paper deals with the selection of refrigerants and simulation of Auto Refrigeration Cascade (ARC) system, which is generally used for low temperature applications in the range of -40 to -150°C that operates with zeotropic mixture, containing two or more refrigerants with different boiling points. The selection of refrigerants depends on the working pressure and temperature range of ...

  • Irreversibility analysis of a compression refrigeration cycle using natural refrigerants for a sustainable future

    Irreversibility analyses of R290, R717, R718 and R744 are carried out in a compression refrigeration cycle. The effects of evaporator temperature, condenser temperature and isentropic efficiency on the irreversibility of the cycle and its basic components are investigated and exergy analysis of the cycle is also presented as a function of evaporator and condenser temperatures. The ...

  • Thermoeconomic design optimisation of a refrigeration evaporator

    An exergoeconomic optimisation analysis is presented considering the main three component exergy destruction: the pressure losses IΔΡ, temperature difference IΔΤ and specific humidity gradient IΔω. The sum of the annual capital cost, Zev, and the cost of compensation for the total exergy destruction is taken as the optimisation objective function. The tube diameter, the air velocity and the fin ...

  • Exergy analysis of an adsorption refrigeration machine

    This paper presents an original model of exergy analysis of an adsorption refrigeration machine, connected with irreversible processes of heat and mass transfer during the functioning stages. The difficulty of such approach is related to the non-stationary character of the thermodynamic processes. Thus, the highest destruction of exergy appears in the adsorption and desorption processes due to ...

  • Landfill remediation with refrigerants and chlorinated solvents

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits ...

  • Minimizing Refrigerant Emissions in HVAC Systems

    Managing the operation and maintenance of a facility's air conditioning equipment has always been a major responsibility, as chillers often represent the single largest electrical load in a facility. Since the annual cost of operating chillers is a major ...

  • Refrigerator standards and their impact on United States society

    This paper addresses criticisms of US Federal appliance efficiency standards and whether or how the imposition of efficiency standards on household refrigerators and freezers in the US affects prices, supply, and various other attributes. The study is based on historical data about changes in standards for household refrigerators along with data about the size, styles, energy consumption, ...

  • EPA mandates proper refrigerant gas recovery processes

    New EPA regulations require facilities that use air conditioning and refrigeration equipment to have a refrigerant recovery plan in place. The plan is needed to make sure that any harmful gases that might leak are captured. Refrigerant gases contain hydrochlorofluorocarbons, known to cause severe damage to the ozone layer and to promote global warming. A comprehensive plan is now in place to ...

  • Andover, Vapor Extraction and Refrigerated Condensation Case study

    Vapor Extraction and Refrigerated Condensation was used as a primary source removal technology to remediate high concentrations of recalcitrant chlorinated solvent compounds at the WDE Site in Minnesota. The use of Refrigerated Condensation has achieved high mass removal rates and will reduce the lifecycle costs and time of remediation. History 6,600 drums of hazardous ...

  • Realistic limitations to the operation of heat-driven refrigerators

    The optimal characteristic curve relating the COP and the refrigeration rate of an irreversible heat-driven refrigerator is established on the basis of a thermodynamic model which combines the endoreversible model and the heat leak insulation model. It is found that the curve is loop-shaped and that both the refrigeration rate and the COP exhibit a maximum. In addition, it is shown that the curve ...
