Abstract:

This project deals with the development of multifunctional unit which can provide hot water, cold water along with regular space/air conditioning. The design mainly consists of compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve, copper coil, temperature and pressure gauges and tumblers. The refrigerant is used as the medium which absorbs and removes heat from the space to be cooled and subsequently rejects that heat elsewhere. This heat of the refrigerant is used to cool the water, which can be then used for drinking purposes. This work investigates the performance of a domestic refrigerator when a propane/butane mixture is used as a possible replacement to the traditional refrigerant R134a which possess high global warming potential (GDP). The used hydrocarbon mixture comprises 64% propane, 36% butane. The hydrocarbons are cheap and possesses an environmentally friendly nature with no ODP (ozone depletion potential) and GDP.
