Visual Techniques to Quantify Behavior of Oil Droplets in a Scroll Compressor

Abstract

In the shell of a compressor, oil used for the lubrication of sliding parts and for oil film sealing of the compression chamber is atomized by the refrigerant gas flow. In order to reduce the oil concentration ratio (OCR), it is necessary to develop a method to quantify the size, number and speed of these oil droplets. This report describes methods to… (More)
