Isobutane (r 600a) as a refrigerant in hermetic refrigeration systems

ISOBUTANE (R 600a) as a refrigerant in hermetic refrigeration systems


Various alternative refrigerants to CFC12 have been studied and some of them now are used by the refrigeration industry worldwide. There are some flammable refrigerants аmong them.

Flammable refrigerants such as (R 600a) isobutene have gained in popularity with the consumer population. primary because of its environmentally benign properties. More specifically, hydrocarbon refrigerants are safe to the Earth\‚s ozone layer and also are not considered to be a direct contributor to the Global Warming phenomena, known as the Greenhouse Effect.

 

The objective of this technical report is to present in details, the principal technical characteristics and the impacts, in both the compressor and the hermetic refrigeration system, during the use of the alternative isobutene refrigerant …
