THE SATURATION CURVE

- Under the curve, the refrigerant follows the pressure-temperature relationship
- The left side of the saturation curve represents 100% liquid
- The right side of the saturation curve represents 100% vapor
- For non-blended refrigerants, one pressure corresponds to one temperature

NET REFRIGERATION EFFECT

The portion of the system that provides the desired cooling or conditioning of the space or products being treated.

B

C

NET REFRIGERATION EFFECT

- The larger the NRE, the greater the heat transfer rate per pound of refrigerant circulated
- NRE is in the units of btu/lb
- Cooling effect can be increased by increasing the NRE or by increasing the mass flow rate
- The cooling effect can be decreased by decreasing the NRE or by decreasing the rate of refrigerant circulation through the system

NRE Example

- Heat Content at point B = 35 btu/lb
- Heat Content at point C = 85 btu/lb
- NRE = C – B = 85 btu/lb – 35 btu/lb

NRE = 50 btu/lb

- Each pound of refrigerant can therefore hold 50 btu of heat energy
- How many btu does it take to make 1 ton?

How Many btu = 1 Ton?

- 12,000 btu/hour = 1 Ton = 200 btu/min
- From the previous example, how many lb/min do we have to move through the system to get 1 ton?
- 200 btu/min/ton ÷ 50 btu/lb = 4 lb/min
- We must circulate 4 pounds of refrigerant through the system every minute to obtain one ton of refrigeration
- Mass Flow Rate Per Ton

NRE and MFR/ton

- The NRE determines the number of btu that a pound of refrigerant can hold
- The larger the NRE the more btu can be held by the pound of refrigerant
- As the NRE increases, the MFR/ton decreases
- As the NRE decreases, the MFR/ton increases
- NRE = Heat content at C – Heat content at B
- MFR/ton = 200 ÷ NRE
- Cool, huh?

THE SUCTION LINE

The line that connects the outlet of the evaporator to the inlet of the compressor. This line is field installed on split-type air conditioning systems.

C

SUCTION LINE

- The suction line should be as short as possible
- The amount of heat introduced to the system through the suction line should be minimized
- Damaged suction line insulation increases the amount of heat added to the system and decreases the system’s operating efficiency
- Never remove suction line insulation without replacing
- Seal the point where insulation sections meet

HEAT OF COMPRESSION

The quantity, in btu/lb that represents the amount of heat that is added to the refrigerant during the compression process.

HEAT OF COMPRESSION (HOC)

- The HOC indicates the amount of heat added to a pound of refrigerant during compression
- As the pressure of the refrigerant increases, the heat content of the refrigerant increases as well
- Heat gets concentrated in the compressor
- As HOC increases, efficiency decreases
- As HOC decreases, efficiency increases
- HOC = Heat content at E – Heat content at D

D

TOTAL HEAT OF REJECTION

The quantity, in btu/lb that represents the amount of heat that is removed from the system. THOR includes the discharge line, condenser and liquid line.

TOTAL HEAT OF REJECTION (THOR)

- THOR indicates the total amount of heat rejected from a system
- Refrigerant (hot gas) desuperheats when it leaves the compressor (sensible heat transfer)
- Once the refrigerant has cooled down to the condensing temperature, a change of state begins to occur (latent heat transfer)
- After condensing, refrigerant subcools
- THOR = Heat content at E – Heat content at A
- THOR = NRE + HOC

SUBCOOLING & FLASH GAS

- Subcooling is a good thing, right?
- Flash gas is a good thing, right?
- Are flash gas and subcooling related?
- How can we tell?
- Stay tuned...

SUBCOOLING & FLASH GAS

- Subcooling and flash gas are inversely related to each other
- As the amount of subcooling increases, the percentage of flash gas decreases
- As the percentage of flash gas increases, the amount of subcooling decreases

COMPRESSION RATIO

Determined by dividing the high side pressure (psia) by the low side pressure (psia)

COMPRESSION RATIO

- Represents the ratio of the high side pressure to the low side pressure
- Directly related to the amount of work done by the compressor to accomplish the compression process
- The larger the compression ratio, the larger the HOC and the lower the system MFR
- The larger the HOC, the lower the efficiency
- Absolute pressures must be used

ABSOLUTE PRESSURE

- Absolute pressure = Gauge pressure + 14.7
- Round off to 15, for ease of calculation
- Example 1
- High side pressure (psig) = 225 psig
- High side pressure (psia) = 225 + 15 = 240 psia
- Low side pressure (psig) = 65 psig
- Low side pressure (psia) = 65 + 15 = 80 psia
- Compression ratio = 240 psia ÷ 80 psia = 3:1

Low Side Pressure in a Vacuum?

- First, convert the low side vacuum pressure in inches of mercury to psia
- Use the following formula

(30” Hg – vacuum reading) ÷ 2

- Example
- High side pressure = 245 psig
- High side pressure (psia) = 245 + 15 = 260 psia
- Low side pressure = 4”Hg
- Low side (psia) = (30”hg – 4”Hg) ÷ 2 = 13 psia
- Compression ratio = 260 ÷ 13 = 20:1

COMPRESSION RATIO

- Lower compression ratios higher system efficiency
- Higher compression ratios lower system efficiency
- The closer the head pressure is to the suction pressure, the higher the system efficiency, all other things being equal and operational

Causes of High Compression Ratio (High Side Issues)

- Dirty or blocked condenser coil
- Recirculating air through the condenser coil
- Defective condenser fan motor
- Defective condenser fan motor blade
- Defective wiring at the condenser fan motor
- Defective motor starting components (capacitor) at the condenser fan motor

Causes of High Compression Ratio (Low Side Issues)

- Dirty or blocked evaporator coil
- Dirty air filter
- Defective evaporator fan motor
- Dirty blower wheel (squirrel cage)
- Defective wiring at the evaporator fan motor
- Closed supply registers
- Blocked return grill
- Loose duct liner
- Belt/pulley issues

THEORETICAL HORSEPOWER PER TON

- Determines how much compressor horsepower is required to obtain 1 ton of cooling
- The ft-lb is a unit of work
- The ft-lb/min is a unit of power
- 33,000 ft-lb/min = 1 Horsepower
- The conversion factor between work and heat is 778 ft-lb/btu
- 33,000 ft-lb/min/hp ÷ 778 ft-lb/btu =

42.42 btu/min/hp

THEORETICAL HORSEPOWER PER TON

- THp/ton = (MFR/ton x HOC) ÷ 42.42
- For example, if we had a system that had an NRE of 50 and a HOC of 10, the THp/ton would be:

THp/ton = (200/NRE) x HOC ÷ 42.42

THp/ton = (200/50) x 10 ÷ 42.42

THp/ton = 4 x 10 ÷ 42.42

THp/ton = 40 ÷ 42.42

THp/ton = 0.94

1 TON

3.8 TONS

25 TONS

16 TONS

THp/ton Example- If we had a 20-Hp reciprocating compressor and the THp/ton calculation yielded a result of 2 hp/ton, what would the expected cooling capability of the system be?

20 TONS

3,492 TONS

10 TONS

What Affects the THp/ton Number?

- The Net Refrigeration Effect (NRE)
- The Heat of Compression (HOC)

What Affects the NRE and HOC?

- Suction pressure
- Discharge pressure
- Compression Ratio
- Airflow through the coils
- Blowers and fans
- And so on, and so on, and so on, and so on….

MASS FLOW RATE OF THE SYSTEM

- The amount of refrigerant that flows past any given point in the system every minute
- Not to be confused with MFR/ton
- MFR/system is the actual refrigerant flow, while MFR/ton is the flow per ton
- MFR/system can be found by multiplying the MFR/ton by the number of tons of system capacity, or

MFR/system = (42.42 x Compressor HP) ÷ HOC

COOL STUFF

- As the HOC increases, the MFR/system decreases, and vice versa
- As the Compression Ratio increases, the HOC increases
- As head pressure increases, or as suction pressure decreases, the Compression Ratio increases
- As the MFR/system decreases, the capacity of the evaporator, condenser and compressor all decrease
- Let’s take a closer look…

Evaporator Capacity = MFR/system x NRE x 60

Btu Lb Btu 60 Min

Hour Min Lb Hour

EVAPORATOR CAPACITY- A function of the MFR/system and the NRE
- The MFR/system is in lb/min, the NRE is in btu/lb and the capacity of the evaporator is in btu/hour

EVAPORATOR CAPACITY

- If the NRE or the MFR/system decreases, the evaporator capacity also decreases
- The “60” is a conversion factor from btu/min to btu/hour, given that there are 60 minutes in an hour
- Divide the evaporator capacity in btu/hour by 12,000 to obtain the evaporator capacity in tons

Condenser Capacity = MFR/system x THOR x 60

Btu Lb Btu 60 Min

Hour Min Lb Hour

CONDENSER CAPACITY- A function of the MFR/system and the THOR
- The MFR/system is in lb/min, the THOR is in btu/lb and the capacity of the condenser is in btu/hour

Compresser Capacity = MFR/system x Specific Volume

ft3 Lb ft3

Min Min Lb

COMPRESSOR CAPACITY- A function of the MFR/system and the Specific volume of the refrigerant at the inlet of the compressor
- Calculated in cubic feet per minute, ft3/min

COEFFICIENT OF PERFORMANCE (COP)

- The ratio of the NRE compared to the HOC, assuming a saturated cycle
- If the cycle is not saturated, add the suction line heat to the HOC
- If the HOC remains constant, any increases in NRE will increase the COP
- If the NRE remains constant, any decrease in HOC will increase the COP
- The COP is a contributing factor to the EER of an air conditioning system
- COP is a unitless value

COP EXAMPLE #1

- Heat content at point B = 35 btu/lb
- Heat content at point C = 104 btu/lb
- Heat content at point D = 104 btu/lb
- Heat content at point E = 127 btu/lb
- NRE = 104 btu/lb – 35 btu/lb = 69 btu/lb
- HOC = 127 btu/lb – 104 btu/lb = 23 btu/lb
- COP = 69 btu/lb ÷ 23 btu/lb = 3
- Notice that the “3” has no units

COP EXAMPLE #2

- Heat content at point B = 35 btu/lb
- Heat content at point C = 105 btu/lb
- Heat content at point D = 110 btu/lb
- Heat content at point E = 140 btu/lb
- NRE = 105 btu/lb – 35 btu/lb = 70 btu/lb
- HOC = 140 btu/lb – 110 btu/lb = 30 btu/lb
- SL superheat = 110 btu/lb – 105 btu/lb = 5 btu/lb
- COP = [70 btu/lb] ÷ [30 btu/lb + 5 btu/lb] = 2

ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATIO (EER)

- A ratio of the amount of btus transferred to the amount of power used
- In the units of btu/watt
- The conversion between btus and watts is 3.413
- One watt of power generates 3.413 btu
- For example, if a system required 50,000 btu of heat, 14,650 watts of electric heat (14.65 kw) can be used

ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATIO (EER), Cont’d.

- The efficiency rating of an air conditioning system is the COP
- For each btu/lb introduced to the system in the suction line and the compressor, a number of btus equal to the NRE are absorbed into the system via the evaporator
- To convert the COP to energy usage, we multiply the COP by 3.413

EER EXAMPLE

- The NRE of a system is 70 btu/lb
- The HOC of the same system is 20 btu/lb
- The COP is 70 btu/lb ÷ 20 btu/lb = 3.5
- The EER = COP x 3.413
- EER = 3.5 x 3.413
- EER = 11.95

SEASONAL EER (SEER)

- Takes the entire conditioning system into account
- Varies depending on the geographic location of the equipment
- Ranges from 10% t0 30% higher than EER
- So, if the EER is 10, the SEER will range from 11 to 13
