Abstract

Energy consumption of an experimental cold storage Was measured for different storage temperatures. Suction temperature and pressure temperature of the compressor and working time of the compressor were determined to reach evaporator set up temperatures. Capacity of compressor, condenser, and evaporator were 10460 kJ/h, 12552 kJ/h, and 10460 kJ/h, respectively. An axial fan located back of the evaporator was used to distribute the cooled air into the cold store. An electrical heater was used to. defrost. Refrigerant was R22.
