DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF AN ABSORPTION REFRIGERATION SYSTEM Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project focuses on the construction of a three fluid gas absorption refrigeration unit, intended to operate in a 20°C environment, with a compartment temperature of 3°C. Three fluid gas absorption refrigerators use a heat source to facilitate refrigeration, no electricity and no moving parts, such as pumps and compressors, and operate at a single system pressure. The three fluid gas absorption cycle uses Dalton's Law of partial pressure between two fluids to evaporate the refrigerant and create cooling. Extensive analysis of the thermodynamics, heat transfer, and chemical properties of a three fluid gas absorption system was conducted to design and construct the structural model shown in the report.
