CLASSIFICATION OF A REFRIGERANT . Refrigerants are classified as: A. Saturated Hydrocarbon B. Unsaturated Hydrocarbon C. Inorganic Refrigerants

A. SATURATED HYDROCARBONS If the general formula of the refrigerantis CmHn FpClq then such a refrigerant is designated as R - (m-1) (n+1)p where n+p+q= 2m + 2

SATURATED HYDROCARBONS EXAMPLES EXAMPLE1: If the chemical formula of refrigerantis CCl2F2 R_ (1-1)(0+1): R012-r12 EXAMPLE 2 : Find the chemical formula of R-11 . 0+1+q 2+2 qF3 R- (m-)(nt)p p=1 n+p+q = 2m+2

SATURATED HYDROCARBONS EXAMPLES EXAMPLE 3: Find the chemical formula of R-113. R- (m-1)(n+Dp 0+3+q = 4+2 q=3 p=3 EXAMPLE 4: Find the chemical formula of R-134. R- (m-1)(n+)p m-1= 1 m=2 2+4+q = 2(2)+2 p=4 n+p+q = 2m+2

B. UNSATURATED HYDROCARBON If the refrigerant is unsaturated hydrocarbon the chemical formula of refrigerant is CmHnFpC1q then such a refrigerantis designated as CmHpC1q then such a refrigerantis designated as R- (m- n+p+q = 2m

UNSATURATED HYDROCARBON EXAMPLE Write the designation for Ethylene C2H4. m=2, n=4,p=0 n+p+q = 2m 4+0+q= 2(2) q-o R-1150

C. INORGANIC REFRIGERANTS R-700 + Molecular Weight NH3 14 + 1x3-17 R-700 +11 = R-717 H20 18 R-718 CO2 44 R-744 S 02 32+1 6x2 = 64 Air R-129 R-764 NOTE: Azeotropes: Mixture of refrigerant is known as azeotropes. Their designation starts with R-500 series.
