    SUMMARY OF AIR CONDITIONING

    SUMMARY OF AIR CONDITIONING  Summary of air conditioning includes comfort and industrial processes. It increases the comfort to living beings and improve the quality of industrial products. Definition Of Air Conditioning It controls simultaneously four parameters, temperature, humidity, purity and velocity of air in a closed space. Further, air conditioning is cooling in summer with […]

    Psychrometric chart

    Psychrometric chart  This chart contain moist air properties. Construction Refer Fig. is a Psychrometric chart.   Dry bulb temperature is the abscissa (along x-axis) and specific humidity is the ordinate (along y-axis) at 1 atmospheric pressure. It contains the following lines: Vertical lines for dry bulb temperature Horizontal lines towards right for specific humidity Horizontal […]

    Psychrometry

    Psychrometry Definition Psychrometry is the study of the properties of moist air (dry air + water vapor). It includes the study of various temperatures, humidities and psychrometric processes. Dry Air It is a mixture of gases (mainly oxygen and nitrogen) which does not contain water vapor. Wet air Wet air or moist air is a […]


  • Refrigeration-Filling blanks

    Refrigeration-Filling blanks

    Refrigeration-Filling blanks  Oil separator An oil separator is always placed in the ————-line. Crank case A crank case heater is connected in such a way so that it is ———–when the compressor is off. Compressor The compressor is called the ————- of the refrigeration unit. Anemometer Anemometer is used to measure the ————–. Dehydrator Dehydrator […]


  • Filling blanks – controls

    Filling blanks – controls

    Filling blanks – controls  Controls and safety devices in refrigeration are  extremely important to make the operation automatic and safe. Thermostat makes the motor off as soon as the pre-fixed temperature is achieved. Absence  of a thermostat will keep the refrigeration in working unnecessary resulting in the wastage of power without achieving any useful purpose. Safety […]

  • Refrigeration Evaporator-Fill in blanks

    Refrigeration Evaporator-Fill in blanks

    Refrigeration Evaporator-Fill in blanks It will improve the deep understanding of a evaporator used in refrigeration. Evaporators are the cooling unit in a refrigeration unit. Both dry and flooded evaporators produce cooling using latent heat. Evaporator used in the domestic units is called ————-evaporator. Commercial refrigeration uses an evaporator which is called ————-evaporator. Industrial  refrigeration […]


  • Refrigeration Expansion valves-Fill in blanks

    Refrigeration Expansion valves-Fill in blanks

      Refrigeration Expansion valves-Fill in blanks This increases understanding in depth of the expansion valves. Expansion valves reduce the condenser pressure to evaporator pressure and also control the flow of refrigerant as per cooling requirements. FILL IN THE BLANKS FOR THE EXPANSION VALVES Various expansion valves control the flow rate of refrigerant and also ————the […]
