PRESSURE DROP IN A PLATE EVAPORATOR FOR REFRIGERATORS
2002 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This study examines the two-phase refrigerant side pressure drop in a plate evaporator used in a refrigerator. The refrigerant was Isobutane (R600a). The refrigerant channel had a non-circular cross-section best described as a circular segment. It was found that the best estimation of the frictional pressure drop was with a homogeneous method and with a modified version of the separated Lockhart and Martinelli method.
