Description of Vapour Compression Refrigerator And Heat Pump Apparatus:
The unit is designed to use Tetrafluoroethane as the refrigerant with a twin cylinder reciprocating compressor, belt driven by the variable speed dynamometer. The refrigeration circuitry includes a water cooled condenser complete with isolating valves, manual expansion valve, evaporator, variable area flowmeter for mass flow of refrigerant, filter/drier unit, sight glass and over pressure cut-out for unit protection.
The evaporator coil is mounted in an electrically stirred water/glycol mixture contained in a thermally insulated, stainless steel tank. Heating of this water/glycol mix is infinitely variable enabling balanced experimental conditions over a wide range of temperatures to be obtained. The water/ glycol mixture is protected from over temperature conditions by a thermostat should the heater should be left on when the compressor is not circulating refrigerant.
