AMMONIA, AN UNKNOWN REFRIGERANT.

Author(s) : KEIZER C.

Summary

ATTENTION FOR NEW REFRIGERANTS SHOULD INCLUDE A SERIOUS EVALUATION OF AMMONIA. IF A POSITIVE CONCLUSION WERE TO BE DRAWN, NON-CONVENTIONAL APPLICATIONS MIGHT OFFER SCOPE. ALTHOUGH AMMONIA HAS ACTUALLY BEEN USED AS A REFRIGERANT FOR A LONG TIME, DATA ON ITS PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ARE CONTRADICTORY. A NUMBER OF SEMI-EMPIRICAL RELATIONS CONCERNING THE EVAPORATION HAVE BEEN COMPARED AND SEEM TO BE AMBIGOUS, PROBABLYDUE TO THE DERIVATION FROM EXPERIMENTS WITH MAINLY CFCS.
