Perspectives actuelles et futures de transfert du chaleur dans les systèmes à ammoniac.

Current and future prospects of enhanced heat transfer in ammonia systems.

Auteurs : AYUB Z.


In the last decade, a moderate headway has been made in the application of enhanced surface heat exchangers in ammonia refrigeration systems. This has been a result of the persistent issue of ozone and global warming which has resulted in keen interest in natural refrigerants such as ammonia that has played a prominent role in the refrigeration industry for years, particularly in the field of food, beverage and marine. The only drawback with ammonia is the toxicity; hence, if smaller heat exchangers could be introduced in order to reduce the ammonia charge, this negative aspect about ammonia can be pacified to a great extent. In order to achieve this goal, novel and compact heat exchangers with enhanced surfaces have to be introduced. This paper presents an overview of the status of ammonia as a refrigerant. It also discusses the present and the future trends in the development of compact heat exchangers for the use in ammonia refrigeration.
