Vapour Compression, Ecofriendly Refrigerant, GWP


The number of eco-friendly refrigerants are used in vapour compression refrigeration system like HFC152a, HFC32, HC290, HC1270, HC600, HC600a, RE170.The results showed that the alternative refrigerants investigated in the analysis RE170, R152a and R600a have a slightly higher COP than R134a for condensation temperature 50 °C and evaporating temperature -30 °C and 10°C. RE170 refrigerant replace the R134a refrigerant and HC290 & HC600a refrigerants replace the R22 refrigerant. At concept of ODP (ozone depleting potential) and GWP (global warming potential) refrigerant R152a will be batter alternative refrigerant than R134a in refrigeration system. The effects of the main parameters of performance analysis such as refrigerant type, sub-cooling and superheating on the refrigerating effect, coefficient of performance and volumetric refrigeration capacity wear also investigated for various evaporating temperatures.
