Abstract The sizing of evaporators for refrigeration and air conditioning applications is essential for good cycle performance. For this reason, accurate knowledge of the heat transfer coefficients and pressures drops of refrigerants is mandatory. In order to identify the best substitute for R22, in this paper, the experimental local heat transfer coefficients and pressure drops during flow boiling of R407C and R417A were compared. The test section was a smooth, horizontal, stainless steel tube… CONTINUE READING
