An experimental study of a refrigerating plant when replacing R22 with HFCs refrigerants

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental analysis comparing the performance of avapour compression refrigerating unit operating with R22, and its performance in comparison tosome HFCs fluids, substituting the former according to reg. n. 2037/2000. In particular, the plantworking efficiency was first tested with R22 and then with three HFC fluids: R417A, R407C andR404A. The investigation verified that the performance with HFCs refrigerants did not result asefficient as when using R22. An environmental analysis also was performed.
