REFRIGERATION
INTRODUCTION Refrigeration is a process in which heat is transferred from a lower- to a higher-temperature level by doing work on a system. In some systems heat transfer is used to provide the energy to drive the refrigeration cycle. All refrigeration systems are heat pumps (“pump energy from a lower to a higher potential”). The term heat pump is mostly used to describe refrigeration system applications where heat rejected to the condenser is of primary interest. There are many means to obtain the refrigerating effect, but here three are discussed: mechanical vapor refrigeration cycles, absorption, and steam-jet cycles due to their significance…
