REFRIGERATION . It is a process of maintaining lower temperature compare to surroundings. In order to maintain lower temperature continuously, refrigeration system must run on a cycle. . Refrigerant: Refrigerant is a substance used for producing lower temperature. E.g NH3 , Water, Air, R-11,R-12, R-134.

REFRIGERATION EFFECT (RE) . It is the amount of heat which is to be extracted from storage space in order to maintain lower temperature. It is the desired effect of refrigerator. SURROUNDIN Win COB= RE Nin NW In %-RE 2. STORAGE SPACE

SIGNIFICANCE OF COP . COP (Coefficient of Performance): It represents running cost of the system for a given refrigeration capacity . Greater the COP lesser is the work input and hence lower is the running cost.

COP OF REFRIGERATOR For ReFrigerator: Atm COP= Desired Effect-9 Work Input of] BODY A COP= Desired Effect / Work Input = Q2 /w [COP]ref =Q2 / (Q,-Q)

COP OF HEAT PUMP For Hest ump umo. BODY AT 8, G1-81 Aim at COP= Desired Effect / Work Input =Q, /w

UNITS OF REFRIGERATION Refrigeration is expressed in terms of" tonne of refrigeration" . A tonne of refrigeration is defined as amount of refrigeration effect produced by the uniformmelting of one tonne (1000 Kg) ofice from and at 0 C in 24 hours. . I TR = 1000 x 335 kJ in 24 hours 1 000 x 335/ 24 x 60 x 60 = 232.6 KJ/min In actual practice it is equivalent to 210 KJ/ min or 3.5 Kw

1 TR= 2000 POUNDS X 144 BTU per pound / 24 hours
= 12000 BTU'S per hour
= 200 BTU/min
= 3.517 kj/s
= 3.517 kw
= 3516 watts
= 4.72 HP
so, TR= 3.517 KW

you commit a mistake in pounds.
2205 punds x 144 BTU per pound/ (24 X 60) =
221 BTU'S per minute which is very close to
(235.6÷1.055)=222 BTU'S PER MINUTE
Because 1 BTU is equal to 1.055 kj

Sir , it confusing , why so much difference in the value of 1TR in SI and British Units.
