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 pure ammonia gas then enters the condenser. Classical Statistical Chemical Quantum thermodynamics. This “Platen-Munters” design can operate without a pump. The less humid, warm air is then passed compressorleds an evaporative coolerconsisting of a spray of fresh water, which cools and re-humidifies the air. 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.

The principle can also be used to air-condition buildings using the waste heat from a gas turbine or water heater. An absorption refrigerator is a refrigerator that uses a heat source e. In comparison, a compressor refrigerator uses a compressor, usually powered by either an electric or internal combustion motor, to increase the pressure on the gaseous refrigerant.

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. Compresxorless simple absorption refrigeration system common in large commercial plants uses a solution of lithium bromide and lithium chloride salt and water. Entropy and time Entropy and life Brownian ratchet Maxwell’s demon Heat death paradox Loschmidt’s paradox Synergetics.


Without phase change hot air engines. At the TED ConferenceAdam Grosser presented his research of a new, very small, “intermittent absorption” vaccine refrigeration unit compressorlesz use in third world countries. Commercial production began in by the newly formed company AB Arcticwhich was bought by Electrolux in The condensed liquid ammonia flows down to be mixed with the hydrogen gas released from the absorption step, repeating the cycle.

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. The orifice or throttle valve creates a pressure drop between the high pressure condenser section and the low pressure evaporator section.

Zeroth First Second Third. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The resulting hot, high-pressure gas is condensed to a compressorldss form by cooling in a heat exchanger “condenser” that is exposed to the external environment usually air in the room. Thermodynamics The classical Carnot heat engine. The intake of warm, moist air is passed through a sprayed solution of salt water.

Carnot’s theorem Clausius theorem Fundamental relation Ideal gas law. A single-pressure absorption refrigerator takes advantage of the fact that a liquid’s evaporation rate depends upon the partial pressure of the vapor above the liquid and goes down with lower partial pressure. The lower pressure in the evaporator section allows the liquid refrigerant to evaporate, which absorbs heat reffigerator the refrigerator food compartment. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Absorption refrigerator

Another variant, uses air, water, and a salt water solution. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Thermodynamic cycles Heat pumps Cooling technology Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Gas technologies. It continues to evaporate, while the large enthalpy of vaporization heat flows from copressorless warmer refrigerator interior to the cooler liquid ammonia and then to more ammonia gas.

Conjugate variables in italics. The volume of the evaporator is greater than the volume of the liquid, refriyerator the excess space occupied by a mixture of gaseous ammonia and hydrogen. Material properties Property databases Specific heat capacity. Archived from the original PDF on The now-vaporized refrigerant then goes back into the compressor to repeat the cycle. The spray lowers the humidity but does not significantly change the temperature. Heat engines Heat pumps Thermal efficiency.

In the s, absorption refrigeration saw a renaissance due to the substantial demand for refrigerators for caravans travel trailers. The condensed refrigerant, now at rrefrigerator temperature near to that of the external environment, then passes through an orifice or a throttle valve into the evaporator section.
