An absorption refrigerator is a refrigerator that uses a heat source to provide the energy needed to drive the cooling process. The principle can also be used to. Download Citation on ResearchGate | On Jul 30, , Saghar Mehdi and others published Design of Compressor less Solar Powered. design and fabricate a compressor less refrigerator system flywheel. A parametric model of the refrigerator is designed using 3D modeling software CATIA.

The cooling cycle starts with liquid ammonia at room temperature entering the evaporator.

History General Heat Entropy Gas laws. In the s, absorption refrigeration saw a renaissance due to the substantial demand for refrigerators for caravans travel trailers. This page was last edited on 26 Novemberat From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The presence of hydrogen lowers the partial pressure of the ammonia gas, thus lowering the evaporation rate of the liquid below compressorles temperature of the refrigerator’s interior. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The refrigerator uses three substances: Views Read Edit View history. An absorption refrigerator changes the gas back into a liquid using a method that needs only heat, and has no moving parts other than the refrigerant itself.


Another variant, uses air, water, and a salt water solution. Heat engines Heat pumps Thermal efficiency. Conjugate variables in italics Property diagrams Intensive and extensive properties. Water under low pressure is evaporated from the coils that are being chilled. While having the same total pressure throughout the system, the refrigerator maintains a low partial pressure of the refrigerant therefore high evaporation rate in the part of the system that draws heat out of the low-temperature interior of the refrigerator, but maintains the refrigerant at high partial pressure therefore low evaporation rate in the part of the system that expels heat to the ambient-temperature air outside the refrigerator.

Absorption refrigerator

The principle can also be used to air-condition buildings using the waste heat from a gas turbine or water heater. Equations Carnot’s theorem Clausius theorem Fundamental relation Ideal gas law Maxwell relations Onsager reciprocal relations Bridgman’s equations Table of thermodynamic equations.

refrigeratod The system copmressorless pressurized to the pressure where the boiling point of ammonia is higher than the temperature of the condenser coil the coil which transfers heat to the air outside the refrigerator, by being hotter than the outside air. Archived copy as title. The lower pressure in the evaporator section allows the liquid refrigerant to evaporate, which absorbs heat from the refrigerator food compartment.

The salt solution is regenerated by heating it under low pressure, causing water to evaporate. The company marketed refrigerators for recreational vehicles RVs under the Dometic brand.


Heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Absorption refrigerator – Wikipedia

In this heat exchangerthe hot ammonia gas transfers its heat to the outside air, which is below the boiling point of the full-pressure ammonia, and therefore condenses. This “Platen-Munters” design can operate without a pump. Maxwell’s thermodynamic surface Entropy as energy dispersal.

Ammonia evaporates, taking a small amount of heat from the liquid and lowering compressorlezs liquid’s temperature. Humidity is removed from the cooled air with another spray of salt solution, providing the outlet of cool, dry air.

The condensed liquid ammonia flows down to be mixed with the hydrogen gas released from the absorption step, repeating the cycle. Archived from the original PDF on A simple absorption refrigeration system common in large commercial plants uses a solution of lithium bromide and lithium chloride salt and water.

Commercial production began in by the newly formed refrigerafor AB Arcticwhich was bought by Electrolux in The less humid, warm air is then passed through an evaporative coolerconsisting of a spray of fresh water, which cools and re-humidifies the air.
