  • Low recirculation rate evaporators

    Abstract Fin coil evaporators with enhanced internal tube surfaces allow for optimum performance with a minimal overfeed rate. Reducing the overfeed rate requiresless pumping power and smaller line sizes to the evaporator. Additionally, less compressor power is required for the same refrigeration capacity because the wet suction line pressure drop is reduced. Lower compressor power results ...

  • Eliminate Degassing When Measuring Viscosity of Compressor Oils

    Compressor oils can create unique challenges when trying to measure viscosity. Dissolved gases from refrigerants, in particular, tend to bubble out when these oils are measured using traditional viscometers. This can create errors in the measurement, typically causing readings to be much lower than they should be. One way to get around this problem is to allow the oil ...

  • Degassing Refrigerators - Drill-head and Piercing-plier

    1. For what purpose do we have to degas a refrigerator? A refrigerator has to be disposed as hazardous waste. The refrigerants inside a hazardous refrigerator are harmful for the environment (ozone depleting and greenhouse effect). Most common refrigerants are; R12, R134a and R600a. The uncommon is the removal of NH3. Refrigerants are developed to dissolve very easily into ...
