An experimental unit has been built to analyse trans-critical carbon dioxide refrigerating cycles in general, and to test CO2 hermetic reciprocating compressor prototypes in particular. The experimental data has also allowed to numerically compare not only each element, but also all the whole refrigerating system. A description of the numerical compressor… CONTINUE READING
