蒸発器性能に及ぼす冷凍機油の影響について Influence of Refrigerant Oil on Evaporator Performance
Because of the phase-out CFC Freon series required by Montreal Protocal, the conversion to HFC alternatives for vapor compression refrigeration system have been in progress. The each component design of these system should need to be reassessed, however, to improve the performance and compactness of the evaporator, an influence of the refrigerant oil on the refrigerant side heat transfer remains as an important and unsolved subject.<br>In this article, the previous research progresses on the thermophysical properties, two-phase flow regimes and heat transfer in evaporator tube of refrigerant and oil mixture are briefly reviewed and the ability of these results to the combination of the alternative refrigerant and oil system is discussed.<br>According to the review, the limited quantitative agreements were obtained from the perfect miscible refrigerant and oil mixture and, in particular, the much detailed research on the heat transfer mechanisms are required in future.
