Refrigeration unit for storeroom compartments based on water-cooled condensing unit

Refrigeration unit for storeroom compartments based on water-cooled condensing unit

Let us consider the example of refrigeration equipment (hereinafter referred to as refrigeration unit) in compartments intended for storage of provision products. The task of refrigeration unit is to maintain a specified temperature range in each compartment. For this purpose the air cooler is installed in each compartment intended for products storage. The temperature in each compartment can be the same, and also can be determined for each compartment individually (it depends on products storage conditions).

A controller performs the control over temperature, receiving a signal from temperature sensor installed in the compartment to be cooled. The controller regulates the temperature and defrosting operations in a proper compartment by means of control over refrigerant supply, switching on/off of air coolers fans and/or condensing unit switching on/off of refrigeration unit.

Depending on usage conditions, there can be applied both refrigeration units of direct expansion and with an intermediate refrigerant. The example of refrigeration unit of direct expansion is given below. The main components of refrigeration unit are: condensing unit, air coolers, control board, refrigerant pipelines and control fittings.
