System Design and Selection
Basically the system design consists of the selection of component parts to combine and operate in the most economical manner for the specified conditions. Unfortunately, the specific conditions are not only for the evaporator where the refrigerant is actually used but include all or part of the following. These conditions are identified whether the system is a separate component selection or a package furnished assembled by a manufacturer.
1. Evaporator: temperature and refrigerant.
2. Compressor: centrifugal, screw or reciprocating; electric motor, steam turbine, or other driver.
3. Condenser: horizontal or vertical, temperature of cooling water; water quantity limit.
4. Receiver: system refrigerant volume for shut-down ...
