Modelling and performance analyses of evaporators in frozen-food supermarket display cabinets at low temperatures.

Author(s) : GETU H. M., BANSAL P. K.

Type of article: Article, IJR article

Summary

This paper presents modelling and experimental analyses of evaporators in "in situ" frozen-food display cabinets at low temperatures in the supermarket industry. Extensive experiments were conducted to measure store and display cabinet relative humidities and temperatures, and pressures, temperatures and mass flow rates of the refrigerant. The mathematical model adopts various empirical correlations of heat transfer coefficients and frost properties in a fin-tube heat exchanger in order to investigate the influence of indoor conditions on the performance of the display cabinets. The model is validated with the experimental data of "in situ" cabinets. The model would be a good guide tool to the design engineers to evaluate the performance of supermarket display cabinet heat exchangers under various store conditions.
